Can taurine from vitamin water cause renal failure?

Can taurine from vitamin water cause renal failure?

Quite the Opposite: In 2009 there was a conference on taurine. I just read some of the proceedings of that conference along with an extensive review of the renal effects of taurine. Taurine protects the kidney from all kinds of potential insults such as glomerulonephritis, diabetes as well as acute and chronic renal failure. So, taurine has an overall beneficial role to play in the kidney. ...Read more

Possibly: Taking very large amounts of vitamin d can potentially lead to too much calcium in your blood. That, in turn, can potentially lead to kidney damage, among other things. You would probably have to take an absurdly large dose over a prolonged period of time for this to happen. ...Read more

However, the caveat here is what has caused renal failure. So, my best advice is talk this over with your doctor who knows more about your current condition than i. ...Read more

How many glasses of water a day should I drink if renal failure?

How many glasses of water a day should I drink if renal failure?

Water Restriction: That is a hard question to answer. If you have the kind of renal failure where you kidneys make a whole bunch of urine then you should at least drink the same volume of water every day that you are losing plus some. If your kidneys are not making very much urine, or no urine at all, you should be water restricted. This is a question that can only be answered accurately by your kidney doctor. ...Read more

Can you overdose on vitamin b? I saw a post that said too much B6 can cause toxicity but i thought vitamin b was water soluble

Can you overdose on vitamin b? I saw a post that said too much B6 can cause toxicity but i thought vitamin b was water soluble

Taking lots 4 months: I think of overdose as a single high dose causing harm & taking a large single dose of b6 won't cause harm. However, taking high doses of b6 daily for months (usually at least 1000 mg but rarely as low as 200 mg) can cause toxicity symptoms, most commonly peripheral neuropathy (tingling & numbness), also headaches, fatigue & irritability, which usually dissipate upon stopping b6. See comment:. ...Read more

My urine is a neon yellow color and I don't take vitamins. What could cause this and should I be worried? I drink water and eat ice all day long

My urine is a neon yellow color and I don't take vitamins.  What could cause this and should I be worried?  I drink water and eat ice all day long

Urine color: Normal urine color ranges from very pale yellow/or clear (when it is very dilute) to dark yellow, almost brown when it is extremely concentrated (i.e. You're not drinking enough fluids). The color is affected by certain dyes in foods, a common one is due to the riboflavin vitamin you mentioned. As long as it continues to vary in this range, being mostly yellow, there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Would a diet of vitamin water with an occasional flavor packet in water be ok?

Would a diet of vitamin water with an occasional flavor packet in water be ok?

No. Definitely not: You wouldn't get dehydrated while you are starving. Vitamins only work when taken as part of a (preferably) balanced diet. You need water, protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals. There are over 40 essential nutrients in the diet. The more restricted the diet, the greater the risk of imbalance (hippocrates wrote that 2400 years ago-still true). ...Read more
