How Much Water Consumption For CKD Patients

How Much Water Consumption For CKD PatientsFor patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), they must pay attention to many aspects in their diet. Even through in their water intake, they should also be careful. Thereby, how much water consumption for CKD patients is suitable?

While this is also decided by patients’ condition. As we know, water is important for our health, while for patients with CKD, both of the excessiveness and the shortage of water intake can cause bad effect to patients’ health if it is not suitable for patients’ condition.

What should patients know about their water intake and output?

Except for the water that patients take in, body cells’ metabolism will also produce fluid, which also needs to be excreted out. As we know, the excess fluid can be excreted out by urine, while in addition to this way, fluid in our body can also be excreted out through throwing up, feces, sweat and breath, etc. While patients’ water intake should be calculated based on these factors.

In fact, the water amount produced by body’s metabolism is hard to calculate, so we often take 400~500ml as its value.

Is it necessary for CKD patients restrict their water intake?

Water is important for our health. For patients with CKD, they should not restrict their water intake blindly.

Whether should patients restrict their water intake is decided by whether patients have obvious edema. For patients with obvious edema, to control their condition, their water intake is recommended as 500ml plus their yesterday’s urine amount.

While if patients do not have obvious edema, there is no necessity for them to restrict their urine intake. Patients with kidney disease often restrict their water intake because they are afraid to have edema. In fact, restricting water blindly may also aggravate patients’ damaged kidney structure.

On the other hand, patients with kidney disease often have heart failure, which can cause the water excretion reducing, and patient should restrict their water intake strictly in this condition.

Thereby, patients should make their water consumption plan based on their own condition, and it is necessary for them to consult their doctor ‘s advice in this aspect. Besides, if you have any question, you can also contact us, and we are glad to help you.
