How Much Water Should an APKD Person DrinkOur kidneys are responsible for maintaining fluid balance in the body. If the kidneys are damaged, they may not be able to release fluids, and then waster intake is limited. How much water should an ADPKD person drink?


How much water kidney disease patients should take depends on their water intake and urine output. If you are on dialysis, this includes how much fluid is removed during dialysis. Also, your body weight will be also measured between dialysis treatments.

If you are not on dialysis, and have no swelling, you can drink more water. It is helpful for prevent urinary tract infection, a complication of ADPKD (Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease).

In general, the recommended amount of water intake is the sum of urination amount and 500 mL water. You can send your test report to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours.


● Sodium intake. In addition to closely watching fluid intake, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients also need to limit sodium in diet. This is because increase sodium intake make people feel thirsty, tempting them to drink more water. Therefore, they may need to avoid salty foods like processed meat, canned soups, and fast food, etc.

● Foods. Not only water, fluids in other foods including vegetable, fruits, porridge, and so on. If you have difficulty sticking to fluid restrictions, you can suck on hard candy, chewing gum or ice chips -- just count them along with your fluid intake

● Treatment. Only diet control is not enough. Medication for ADPKD is very necessary. I recommend you to take traditional Chinese medicines that can shrink kidney cysts as well as improve kidney function. They are available in Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital which is locate in China.
