Can Kidney Patients Go for Sauna

Can Kidney Patients Go for SaunaCan kidney patients go for sauna? Sauna can help you sweat so as to discharge toxins out of the body. But for kidney patients, it is better not to do it. Now go on reading to learn more information.

What does the sweat from sauna include?

99% of the components are water, and less than 1% of the other components include sodium, potassium, calcium, chlorine and urea nitrogen. Among them, the only one that can be associated with "toxicity" is probably "urea nitrogen", which is the urea nitrogen index in renal function tests. Urea nitrogen is mainly excreted through urine. The excretion of urea nitrogen through urine is thousands of times that of sweat.

The main detoxification organ of the human body is the kidney rather than the skin.

What risks do kidney patients have for sauna?

1. To increase the risk of acute renal failure

We know that severe diarrhea can cause acute kidney damage. Sweating in sauna is as dangerous as diarrhea in dehydration. After losing a lot of water, the body fluid decreases and blood volume reduces. Kidney is the most important organ affected. The capillaries of the kidney are very abundant. If the blood supply is insufficient, it will cause ischemic kidney damage.

Therefore, not only sauna, but also fever, excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, heatstroke, require us to timely replenish water to alleviate the decline in human blood volume, reduced blood pressure, heart rate acceleration, and increased body temperature.

2. To increase the risk of infections

After a lot of sweating, the components of sweat can not leave the skin in time, which will stimulate the skin to appear contact dermatitis symptoms such as erythema, itching, and increase the risk of bacterial or fungal infections.

Kidney patients are particularly afraid of colds, because colds (respiratory tract infections) may cause relapse. Skin infections may also aggravate kidney disease.

Kidney patients do not go for sauna any more. If you really want to eliminate toxins from the blood and reduce the workload of kidneys, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment. For more information on this treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
