Is Walking Good for Kidney FailureWalking is an ideal exercise for Chronic Kidney Disease patients, but may be not good for certain Kidney Failure patients. Why? Take a look at the health benefits and limitations of walking.

Health benefits of walking

Walking is a mild exercise, so it won’t rise creatinine too high. In addition, walking is highly recommended because it can curb cardiovascular conditions, a major health risk for people with Kidney Failure and those on dialysis.

Who isn’t recommended to take walking?

If Kidney Failure patients are very weak or heave severe proteinuria or swelling, they should take enough good rest and avoid long time walking. Any questions, you can email to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours.

Where can you walk?

Take a stroll around the neighborhood, find nature trails or walk around a shopping mall. If the weather doesn’t permit walking outside, think about investing in a new or used treadmill or elliptical machine. Simply walking up and down the stairs or around your house multiple times can also be an alternative to walking outdoors.

How long should you walk?

The recommended duration of walking is 15-30 minutes for general Kidney Failure patients. You’d better talk with your physician and doctor to make a specific exercise plan.

What should you notice?

You may feel thirsty after walking for a long time. It’s essential to be hydrated while walking, but also import for Kidney Failure patients to stay within prescribed fluid limits.

Consult your healthcare team about how to remain hydrated while walking and still control fluid intake. Also, check labels on water bottles and sports drinks as many brands now have added potassium or phosphorus to these items, something that kidney disease patients need to limit or avoid when possible. Carry a water bottle with you or get a hands-free water bottle that either hooks onto a backpack or athletic utility belt.
