How Water Influences Our Kidney Health

How Water Influences Our Kidney Health
A:

Water is part of the vital nutrients of a healthy balanced diet. There are a lot of science-based benefits of drinking enough water.

 

As drinking water brings many health benefits, it is also frequently asked whether increasing water intake beyond recommendation can improve kidney function. The answer is varied.

 

Increased fluid intake prevents stone formation in the kidney as water help cleats sodium, urea, and osmoles. The study recommends increasing water intake to increase urine volume to avoid reoccurrence. As frequent reoccurrence of stone formation can damage kidney tissues and thus could elevate the risks of kidney problems, increasing water intake in such cases is beneficial to kidney health. A large Canadian study also found that increased urine volume predicted a slower renal decline in the six-year follow-up.

 

However, the result might be different for people with chronic kidney problems. In a randomized controlled trial, no significant result showed that coaching to increase water intake could slow the progression of kidney problems in a year. Less is more for people who are already receiving dialysis, as fluid intake is often greatly restricted.

 

There is no one size fits all in water consumption guidelines. It should be adjusted based on activity level, weather, and health condition. Consult healthcare provider when necessary. Drink water wisely to protect health!

A:
DTS is scientifically proven to be beneficial to kidney function and has a positive effect on supporting the eGFR level. It is suitable for people to use as kidney support. Some may wonder, how about individuals without any kidney issues? Is DTS good for them too?   Absolutely yes! As “prevention is better than cure” is one of the basic modern healthcare strategies, the best time to take DTS is right before any kidney and liver problems show up. The herbal
A:
Using creatinine as an indication of kidney function level is common, but just this number alone is not the optimal way to monitor kidney health nor to detect early kidney problems. According to professional recommendations, using an eGFR level is a more accurate indication of kidney health.   Creatinine is a by-product generated from protein metabolism. Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr

If the urine shows pink, red, or even brownish-red color instead of pale yellow, the first thing is to recall is the discolored urine caused by red pigments from medications or food like beetroots and red dragon fruit. If not, maybe it’s time to think about the possibility of blood present in the urine.   Blood in the urine is just a symptom, and sometimes it is not possible to see blood in the urine with naked eyes. A lab test is required to check for red blood
