How to Navigate Fluid Restrictions

Fluid restrictions are perhaps one of the most difficult parts of living with the later stages of chronic kidney disease.

After a lifetime of being told that you should stay hydrated, you  find yourself in a position where hydrating yourself could actually be  dangerous.

When your kidneys are not functioning properly, the fluid can build up and cause a lot of really dangerous side effects.

To prevent those scary symptoms from occurring, you need to manage your  fluid intake. This means being extra vigilant about how much fluid you  consume.

Along with how much you are drinking and the fluid content of the foods  you eat, there are some other factors to consider that may affect fluid retention.

Sodium, for example, can cause or contribute to fluid buildup. This is one reason why kidney disease diets are very low sodium or sodium free.
