Is it possible for lemon water to hurt your kidneys?

 

 

Lemon is high in vitamin C, which aids calcium absorption, which is necessary for maintaining bone density. Lemon water is a delightful beverage that many people enjoy. 

There is a great deal of misunderstanding regarding what renal patients should eat and drink, as well as what they should avoid. Renal patients frequently inquire about the benefits of lemon water, according to many specialists.


Is lemon water beneficial to those with renal disease? 


Our kidneys are responsible for excreting poisons and waste from the bloodstream. Kidneys also help to keep blood pressure in check, regulate bone health, and keep levels of substances like creatinine and uric acid in check. 

When your kidneys are unable to filter your blood, toxins and waste products build up in the blood. This is known as chronic renal disease. This can result in life-threatening health concerns like stroke and heart disease. 

Lemon water, which is high in vitamin C, antioxidants, and citric acid, poses no risk to people with chronic kidney disease.


Is it true that drinking lemon water can help you lower your creatinine levels? 


Lemon water may have a minor influence on lowering creatinine levels, but it will not contribute to their growth. Creatinine is a waste chemical product that is produced as a result of our muscles' wear and tears. The more muscles a person has, the higher the level of creatinine in their blood. 

Creatinine clearance is the amount of creatinine cleared by the kidneys. Creatinine levels in a healthy person range from 95 to 120 milli litres per minute in females and 120 milli litres in males. The creatinine clearance is also affected by the age, size, and health of the kidneys. Creatinine levels cannot be increased or decreased by drinking lemon water or juice.


Is lemon harmful to the kidneys?


Lemon water or lemon juice will not exacerbate the condition of people with chronic renal disease. When ingested in excess, though, it can lead to a variety of additional health problems. Nausea, diarrhoea, and vomiting might occur if you drink too much lemon water. It also functions as a diuretic, meaning it causes the body to excrete more fluids, resulting in more frequent urination. 


When is the best time to consume lemon water?


Lemon water can be consumed at any time. It helps to maintain an alkaline environment in the body, thus it's ideal to drink it first thing in the morning. 

When you wake up after a good night's sleep, your body does all the detoxing for you, and having something alkaline on hand can help keep the pH in check. 

Lemon water with ginger and honey can be consumed.
