Is Beer Dangerous for Kidney Transplant PatientIs beer dangerous for kidney transplant patient? When it comes to drinking beer, most people think moderate is safe. Because beer contains alcohol, drinking extra it can cause high blood pressure, kidney disease, heart disease and so on. For patients after kidney transplant, should they quit beer completely?

According to California Medical Center’s research, moderate beer can help reduce the incidence of heart disease and ulcer disease. However, this doesn’t mean patients after kidney transplant can drink beer or alcohol.

Firstly, patients should make sure their rejection reaction has been controlled. Otherwise, patients should avoid beer completely, because drinking beer can cause some dangerous complications including:

1. Damage to kidneys and livers: Extra beer can damage liver tissues directly and increase the burden on kidneys. Overwork on kidneys can cause kidney failure easily. In severe cases, drinking too much beer may induce heart failure and irregular heartbeat.

2. Increase the risk of kidney stone and gout: Beer contains rich calcium, oxalic acid and purine, so beer metabolism may cause deposits of calcium and uric acid. Then, patients are more likely to develop kidney stone or gout.

3. Interfere with medications: Kidney transplant patients need to take a variety of drugs to prevent rejection. Beer may interfere the therapeutic effects of these medications so that kidney transplant patients may be placed in dangerous condition.

4. Develop high blood pressure: High blood pressure is one leading cause of kidney disease. For patients after kidney transplant, high blood pressure may cause the relapse of kidney disease and affect the working of transplanted kidneys.
