    Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Patient Drink Enough Water

    2014-10-31 10:04| Font Size A A A

    Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Patient Drink Enough WaterFor the question about can polycystic kidney disease patients drink enough water, some patients with PKD think that drinking enough water can help them discharge more toxins from the body, while others hold that too much water intake will aggravate illness condition. Now, which of these is right?

    To be frank, there are no evidences that prove the more water people drinks, the better the illness condition. However, the only thing we can confirm is that a proper amount of water intake is indeed good for our body health, there is no exception for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease.

    As we all know, PKD is a inherited disorder characterized by the growth numerous cysts in the kidneys. These cysts is featured by the filled-fluid pockets on the kidney and if left untreated, the cysts will enlarge and are more likely to rupture. Then, the cystic fluid will leak into the spaces of organs, causing serious condition like kidney infection, blood urine, kidney pain, back pain and so on.

    Well then, to guarantee the safety, how much water should PKD patients drink?

    As a matter of fact, there is no specific answer to reply you. Because whether how much water you can drink mostly depend on your illness condition.

    When you illness condition has progressed into Kidney Failure or you have already began to dialysis, you are not suggested to drink a plenty of water everyday. Because the severe damaged kidney can not discharge extra fluid, wastes and toxins from the body. In this light, too much water intake will become a huge burden for the injured kidneys. What should you do is to consult your doctor for an individualized suggestion.

    In normal condition, the human’s body require water from 1450ml to2800ml every day. And the adults need to drink eight glasses of water a day. And when people got flu, they should drink water from 2000ml to 3000ml everyday.

    However, if the patient’s urination is normal and has no swelling or bloating, drinking plenty of water is important so as to increase the urination which can excrete wastes and toxins to some extent. But what I want to emphasize is that you should always consult your doctor for an individualized suggestion.
