Not really: Beer will only give you more fluids but the alcohol effect in loss of water would obliterate the effect of more fluid.

Probably free diet.: Data on protein ingestion is mostly from animal studies. It is known that high protein diet makes your kidney work a little harder but no real data to support kidney failure from eating a lot of protein. Ck your BP and control your salt intake, and make sure your single kidney is working ok.

NO danger.: Sweat has very little salt. The reason you taste salt in your sweat is because the saliva has no salt so any little salt in the sweat makes it "salty" No problem drinking electrolytes, you will get rid of any excess in the urine.
