Help Stage 5 Kidney Failure Patients Who Like Drinking Alcohol

2013-07-31 15:02

Stage 5 Kidney Failure, Drinking AlcoholStage 5 Kidney Failure means the condition is already in the last and the most severe stage of kidney disease. In many countries, it seems that dialysis and kidney transplant are the only two choices for patients with stage 5 Kidney Failure. A healthy living habit is expected to help improve the prognosis of condition to a certain degree, while drinking alcohol can undoubtedly discount it.

Regularly drinking too much alcohol too often can damage the kidneys, the damage occurs more slowly. Regular heavy drinking has been found to double the risk Chronic Kidney Disease. Smokers who are heavy drinkers have about five times the chance of developing CKD than people who don’t smoke or drink alcohol to excess.

Excessive alcohol consumption can have profound negative effects on the kidneys and their function in maintaining the body’s fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base balance. For patients with stage 5 Kidney Failure, their kidneys themselves have been unable to work normally, now drinking alcohol can make the condition worse without any doubt.

So patients with stage 5 Kidney Failure must forbid alcohol. Each time people drink alcohol the Candida bacteria level in their digestive track increases, this increases cravings for more alcohol. Herbal supplements such as Kudzu can lower the Candida bacteria levels and lessen cravings, allowing people to quit drinking naturally. Switching to a grape diet can help people to quit drinking alcohol. Eating grapes 3 times daily in combination with a multivitamin can help people to quit drinking. However, whether patients with stage 5 Kidney Failure are allowed to eat grapes depends on their specific condition.

Anyway, the most important thing is to help stage 5 Kidney Failure patients improve the quality of life by recovering kidney function. If they still have some certain urine output, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is expected to help repair kidney damage and recover kidney function. If you are also interested in Chinese herbal medicines, then this natural treatment is worth to be learned about.
