Relationship Between Kidney Disease And Lack Of Drinking Water?
hello doctor 🙂
Kidney is an important organ in the body. Kidneys can play a role in filtering blood in the body, and removing substances that the body does not need through urine. In addition, the kidneys also play a role in maintaining fluid balance in the body, and maintaining blood pressure.
Drinking enough water is one of the best things to keep your kidneys healthy. By consuming enough water, the fluid in the body will be relatively sufficient, so that blood flow to the kidneys will be good. Blood flow to the kidneys can help kidney function. If there is a decrease in blood flow to the kidneys, over time it can make kidney function worse.
Chronic kidney failure can consist of several degrees, ranging from mild degrees to severe degrees that require dialysis. In a state of severe enough kidney failure, the kidney's filtering function is no longer good, so drinking too much fluid can cause fluid buildup in the body because the kidneys can't filter the fluid. The accumulated fluid can cause conditions such as shortness of breath, swelling in the body, and can aggravate heart function.
Therefore, usually in people who have severe kidney disorders, the volume of drink consumption is limited. Restrictions on the number of drinks will be determined by the doctor directly based on the status of your kidney function.
There are several causes that can lead to impaired kidney function, such as:
high blood pressure
Frequent use of certain drugs
renal artery narrowing
