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

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
