As we all know, one important function of kidney is to balance the fluid in the body through generating urine. When kidney function declines, it can not play the role fully. As a result, water and sodium retain in the body, resulting in edema. Besides, proteinuria can also cause water retention in the body. That is why kidney failure patients should control the intake of water, especially when they have edema. Even if you do not have edema, too much water can increase the workload of kidney. Long-term overload can cause damage to the kidneys. How much water you can take depends on your kidney function.
