Why is water prohibited to renal insufficiency patient
Hello, the intake of water needs to be determined in combination with specific conditions. If it is not obvious edema caused by various causes such as nephrotic syndrome, acute renal failure, hydronephrosis, etc., there is no need to specifically restrict drinking water. The amount of water should be drunk every day. Add 500 ml on the basis of the total urine volume of the day before yesterday. This amount of water to be added to 500 is to eliminate the loss of moisture from the urine, respiratory, skin, gastrointestinal tract and the like. Do not drink more than 200 ml per drink, to drink a few mouthfuls. It is best to drink half a hour before going to bed. It is not advisable to drink water before and after meals. Drinking water before meals should be 15 minutes before meals. It is best to drink water for 30 minutes after meals. If you have edema, you don't need to be deliberately restricted. If you have edema, you need to limit the intake of water and salt. It is recommended that you further improve the examination, understand your current situation, and actively carry out systemic treatment.

I was diagnosed with renal insufficiency in Feb of this year. The most helpful information I have run across is a book by a renal Dietician Nina Kolbe. Her book is titled :Ten Step Diet& Lifestyle plan for healthier kidneys. I hope that it can help you as well.

In terms of my treatment, it focused on controlling the symptoms, minimizing complications,and slowing the progression of it.
Renal insufficiency is a kidney dysfunction caused by renal artery disease, which will lead to less blood-flow into the kidney. The renal insufficiency will weaken the kidney's function of regulating blood state and prohibit the waste from getting out of the body.

People who have this disease will possibly experience nausea, vomiting, fatigue and weakness as well as sleep problems. Worse still, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath and swelling in the legs, ankles or feet will also occur in some severe situations.

In very acute cases that the person who has renal insufficiency can no longer produce urine, he or she will be informed of a life expectancy of no more than 2 or 3 weeks.
What about dialysis?
The answer from Emily is misleading. In the majority of cases, acute renal insufficiency would not lead to permanent renal failure, let alone patient death.  In acute renal insufficiency, temporary hemodialysis is needed to support the patient until his renal function recovers
