Should I Restrict My Fluid Intake Because of HydronephrosisHydronephrosis is swelling of the part of the kidney that drains urine. Should I restrict my fluid intake because of hydronephrosis? If you have the same problem, you can get the answer here.

What are the causes of hydronephrosis?

It is caused by either partial obstruction of the ureter or bladder, by reflux up the ureter from the bladder, or by large urine production. Excessive fluid intake may exacerbate this condition. It is important to have an evaluation to understand its cause and to determine the best means of observing it for deterioration.

How much fluid can be taken by hydronephrosis patients?

Since the kidneys have been affected, they cannot excrete fluid effectively, hydronephrosis patients are suggested to take restricted fluid. Otherwise, more and more fluid builds up in the kidneys and cannot flow to bladders, resulting in more serious hydronephrosis.

How to treat hydronephrosis?

Hydronephrosis is usually treated by addressing the underlying disease or cause, such as a kidney stone or infection. Some cases can be resolved without surgery. Infections can be treated with antibiotics.

In cases of severe blockage and hydronephrosis, excess urine may need to be removed using either a catheter to drain urine from the bladder or a special tube called a nephrostomy that drains urine from the kidney.

To avoid permanent kidney damage, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs to repair the damaged renal tissues. Maikang composition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath and Food Bath are all natural and effective herbal remedies for hydronephrosis patients.
