Is Fasting Dangerous If You Have Kidney ProblemsFasting of Ramadan is the religion of Muslim. About its advantages, different people have different opinions. Is fasting dangerous if you have kidney problems?

What is fasting?

Fasting is sometimes prescribed by some health gurus. Some people believe that giving the digestive system a rest and abstaining from eating for a long period of time, is beneficial for health as it allows the living cells to cannibalize the dead and weak cells and eliminate them.

However, in Muslim fasting one is not supposed to drink anything. We lose water in the form of vapor through exhaling, sweating, in urine, and in stool. Along with the water, small amounts of salts are also lost. If this lost water is not regularly replaced it leads to dehydration. Severe dehydration is very dangerous because it reduce blood volume to kidneys, and may cause death.

To sum up, I do not recommend kidney disease patients to have fasting.

-Reduce sodium intake. This is to prevent fluid-retention that can cause swelling and high blood pressure.

-Watch out protein intake. In general, the recommended protein amount is 0.6-0.8 g per kg of body weight. Foods containing high-quality protein are good choices.

-Lower potassium and phosphorous intake. Abnormal mineral levels in the blood can cause some problems such as muscle cramps, abnormal hear rate and shortness of breath, etc.
