My husband has been on dialysis for two years. His kidney faliure was due to high blood pressure.
He drank alcohol while on high blood pressure medication. The doctors
can't tell me if that is why his kidney's failed and at this point it doesn't
matter, however; he continues to drink, especially after dialysis. He says
that "it takes the edge off". I know this is a problem, I just can't find any
materials on this subject or if you can/should have alcohol if you are in end stage renal failure.
He is also being considered for a transplant. I have heard that once on
anti-rejection meds that alcohol is NOT allowed.
