    Should I Drink A Lot of Water If My Kidneys Aren’t Functioning Properly

    Should I Drink A Lot of Water If My Kidneys Aren’t Functioning ProperlyIt is well known that kidneys play a vital role in keeping our body balanced and healthy. The kidneys filter waste products and excess water out of your blood, which are then expelled in urine.

    Water is thought to be the best cleaner of our body which can help remove extra wastes and toxins through increasing urine output. Well then, should I drink a lot of water if my kidneys aren’t functioning properly?

    To be frank, the specific answer should be depended on degree of kidney damage and patients’ illness condition. Not all kidney failure patients can drink a ton of water due to severely decreased renal function. If you want to know whether you can or not and how much should you drink in one day, please send your test reports to or leave a message below directly.

    Limit water intake if patients are in the following conditions:

    1. Swelling

    Swelling or edema is a common symptoms when kidneys cannot filter extra water from the body. In the condition, drinking too much water will aggravate edema and worsen illness condition. Therefore, kidney failure patients with swelling should limit water intake.

    2. Minerals imbalance

    If you drink too much water too quickly, the blood becomes diluted and the kidneys cannot filter it fast enough to maintain the proper sodium balance. This condition is called hyponatremia and causes symptoms including fatigue, nausea, vomiting and frequent urination.

    3. Brain swelling

    While drinking too much water is hard on your kidneys, one of the biggest dangers is to your brain. Drinking more water than your kidneys can process means that water is soaked up by other cells in your body. Most cells are able to stretch to accommodate the extra water, but brain cells aren't as forgiving because they're packed tightly in your skull along with blood and cerebrospinal fluid.
