Can Dialysis Patients Drink 30 ml Alcohol in a While

Moderate alcohol drinking may be okay for people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). You’d better check with your nephrologist or renal dietitian to find out if alcohol is safe for you. Can dialysis patients drink 30 ml alcohol in a while?

Effects of alcohol on dialysis patients

Drinking moderate alcohol is good for controlling high blood sugar level, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases that are dangerous complications.

Safe amount of alcohol

Drinking alcohol may be allowable, but it must be counted within your normal fluid intake in diet. The federal government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans defines moderate drinking as:

-One drink per day for women and older people

-Two drinks per day for men

The following count as one drink and each contains the same amount of alcohol:

-12 ounces of beer or wine cooler

-5 ounces of wine

-1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits (whiskey, bourbon, scotch, vodka, gin, tequila, rum)

Considerations

You should talk with your doctor when you decide to take alcohol, especially when you are also taking certain medicines.

In addition, people with high blood pressure should be more careful about alcohol intake.
