Effects of Water Intake on Kidney Transplant Longevity

Water Intake And Kidney Transplant Longevity

If want to keep your Kidney Transplant as long as possible make sure you drink a lot of water!

The one common thing I’ve seen in people who have been able to keep their transplants for a very long time is that they’ve stayed well hydrated, and have pushed the limits with water.

What we do know for certain is that if you don’t stay well hydrated your blood test results won’t look great. Try your very best to get half your body weight in ounces of water every day, I would recommend you also get plenty of water early in the day. With a transplant it takes longer to make urine, so hydrating yourself later in the day might keep you up all night.

Now, before you dive right in, please check in with your doctor to make sure you’re NOT fluid-restricted. Pushing the limits with water while being fluid-restricted can cause major problems.
