How much water does kidney disease patients drink in a day is a very important issue, especially for edema and dialysis patients. Because the amount of water consumed is related to the dry weight of uremic dialysis patients, and dry weight is a key factor in determining whether patients will experience complications after dialysis. In addition, this is also to avoid excessive water retention in the body.
How much water is suitable for kidney dialysis and edema patients to drink per day?
Let's calculate together:
There is a convenient and accurate formula for calculating how much water a kidney disease patient drinks in a day: daily water intake=500ml+previous day's urine intake.
The previous day's urine volume is the total 24-hour urine volume of the previous day. Based on a patient's previous day's urine volume of 300ml, the patient's water intake on the second day must be controlled within 500+300=800ml. If the patient experiences excessive sweating, they can appropriately increase their drinking water by 100ml-200ml.
Generally speaking, patients with edema and dialysis should not drink more than 1000ml of water per day, including all liquids that enter the body, such as boiled water, porridge, milk, and water rich vegetables and fruits. So, how can these water quantities be distributed more reasonably and more suitable for kidney disease patients?
Here is a small plan,
You can take a look:
Drink one cup in the morning, one cup in the morning, one cup in the middle, and one cup in the evening (including medicinal water), in small amounts and multiple times to avoid swallowing in large gulps. 150ml*3=450ml；
A cup of milk/a bowl of Congee=200ml;
Add some fruits (snowflakes, grapes, strawberries, etc.)=100ml between breakfast and lunch, and between lunch and dinner;
Before going to bed, you can drink another small glass of water=50ml.
At this point, I believe everyone has a relatively accurate understanding of edema and how much water dialysis patients drink in a day. I hope all of us can take the issue of drinking water seriously and not drink too much water due to momentary negligence, causing further damage to our bodies.
