A dialysis diet is helpful for patients to prevent some symptoms. Will drinking a few beers have a bad result on dialysis patients?
In general, beers are allowable for dialysis patients, but it should be counted by the doctor according to your own condition.
How much alcohol is too much?
When we talk about one drink, we refer to about one 12-ounce bottle of beer, one glass of wine (5 ounces), or one shot (1.5 ounces) of “hard liquor.”
Having more than three drinks in a day (or more than seven per week) for women, and more than four drinks in a day (or more than 14 per week) for men, is considered “heavy” drinking. Drinking too much beer will burden the kidneys, because the kidneys have to work harder to filter the wastes produced by beers.
What should you do?
Even though it is safe to drink a little beer, you should always consult your healthcare provider in case of some dangerous problems, such as nausea, high blood pressure and creatinine elevation.

More information about dialysis
Many Kidney Failure patients are told by the doctors that they have no choice but to take dialysis or kidney transplant. Actually, it is not the case. Except for dialysis, patients have other choices. In our hospital, we treat kidney disease mainly by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The effective ingredients can expand blood vessel, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular. Therefore, our medicines can improve blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues, so as to enhance kidney function. This is the key of treating kidney disease patients.
