Should You Drink More With Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3Should you drink more with Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3? Some people think the answer is yes, because water can help flush the body and increase the urine output. But, other people think the answer is no, as diseased kidneys can’t eliminate extra fluid from the body. Which idea is right?

Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

To be honest, both of the above ideas are not completely right. Our kidneys are indeed great excretory organs that are responsible for excreting extra fluid, waste products and toxins from the body. Generally speaking, kidneys can still work properly, when 50% of kidney functioning tissues are still healthy. In Stage 3 CKD, kidneys are functioning at 30%~59%. Then, kidneys are unable to work as effectively as healthy kidneys.

What factors affect the amount of water to drink for Stage 3 CKD patients?

In our body, fluid has two uses: meeting the body’s need and forming urine. In stage 3 kidney disease, patients are more likely to have various problems, and the following factors affect the amount of water to drink.

- The amount of urine output

- The degree of swelling

- High blood pressure

- Breath changes

If patients can still urinate normally and don’t have the above problems, they can drink enough water. Otherwise, they should limit the intake of fluid. The basic requirements about patients’ fluid intake is not to reduce the burden on kidneys. From this analysis, we can know patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease can’t drink freely.
