Your Kidneys and Dehydration


Kidneys can be affected by dehydration.


Around 70% of its weight is made up of water. When you lose too much water, it can cause dehydration. This is usually triggered by various factors such as vomiting, sweating, and decreased urination.


Water helps remove wastes from your body's urine. It also helps keep blood vessels open. If you become dehydrated, then your body's natural delivery system will not work properly. It can also make you feel tired. Drinking enough water can help prevent dehydration, which can cause kidney damage. It’s important to drink enough to avoid experiencing severe dehydration.


Dehydration can cause a build-up of acids and wastes in the body, and it can also damage the kidneys. Drinking enough water can also help prevent the formation of kidney stones. It can also contribute to the development of other infections that can damage your kidney. Water also helps dissolve antibiotics used for treating urinary tract infections. It can also make urine more urine-producing.


By looking at your urine, you can get a rough idea of how hydrated you are. If it’s always dark, then it might be time to consult a healthcare professional to check if something is causing your urine to change its color. There is no set amount of water that everyone should drink. Each person has different needs and goals. If you have low or kidney failure, or if you're experiencing dehydration, then it's possible that you should restrict your water or fluid intake.
