Fluid Restrictions

dietinrenal5 (2)

If you have lost the ability to produce urine, you will need to restrict your fluid intake (watch how much you drink).  The standard is 32 ounces a day.   If you drink too much, you could risk too much fluid in your lungs which make it difficult to breathe.

On the other hand, if you don’t drink enough you could risk dehydration, which could make you dizzy, muscle cramps, even vomiting.
