Webinar: The effects of water on kidney health

This webinar will explore the relationship of water and the kidney and it’s potential treatment role in chronic kidney disease.


Description of the Webinar

Since life forms emerged from water to land, antidiuretic hormone (ADH) has played a central role in water homoeostasis necessary for terrestrial habitat. While essential for sustaining intravascular volume for such vital issues as flight and fight reaction, it may longterm have negative effects increasing proteinuria, renal plasma flow, and hyper filtration,  accelerating loss of kidney function. Humans are normally antidiuretic, but ingestion of supplemental water can significantly reduce ADH levels. We will explore the relationship and it’s potential treatment role in chronic kidney disease.
