    Can PKD Patients Drink Beer Or Wine“Can I drink beer or wine with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)”?. This question is from our mail box Follow us to see the answer below.

    Moderate beer or wine may be okay for people with PKD or any kind of kidney disease who are not on dialysis. However, you had better check with your nephrologist or renal dietitian to find out if alcohol is safe for you. Moderation means 1 drink per day for women and older people, and 2 drinks per day for men. But drinking too much can harm your health. It can also worsen kidney disease.

    How does alcohol damage your kidneys?

    Your kidneys are responsible for filtering harmful substances from your blood. One of the substances is alcohol. Alcohol can cause changes in the function of your kidneys and make them less able to filter your blood. In addition to filter blood, your kidneys also do other functions. One of the functions is to keep the right amount of water in your body. Alcohol can affect the ability of your kidneys to do this. When the alcohol dehydrates the body, the drying effect can affect the normal functions of cells and organs, including the kidneys. Besides, alcohol can also affect your blood pressure. If you drink too much beer or wine, your blood pressure is more likely to increase. And medications for high blood pressure can be affected by alcohol. High blood pressure is a common complication of PKD. More than two drinks a day can increase your chance of having high blood pressure.

    Binge drinking can raise a person’s blood alcohol to a dangerous level. This can cause a sudden decline in kidney function called acute kidney injury. In this condition, dialysis is required to make kidney function normal.

    Drinking alcohol can be done safely in moderation, even if you have CKD, PKD, ESRD or diabetes. Always check with your doctor or renal dietitian to make sure it is safe for you to drink alcohol. If you want to learn more information, you can leave your full name, age, gender, country, illness condition and email below, our doctor will contact you timely.
