Dehydration and Kidneys

I have been dehydrating for last 10 years or so. Before that I had kidney stones 3 times in 4 years. These stones came out in urine without any operation. During this period my serum creatinine was 1.0 or higher.

I usually dehydrate once in 10-15 days. Dehydration lasts 24 to 36 hours at a time. During this period I usually do not drink any water or other fluids. No fruits or salad. I have been doing this even during summer when the temperature is 45 degree C. There have been times when a period of dehydration for 48 hours is followed with playing badminton for 2 hours without a drop of water in temperature as high as 45 degrees.

I have lots of experiences during my dehydration. During these years I did not get any blood tests done.

Some of the experiences that I had was – high pulse rate upto 125 per minute. High blood pressure upto 140/ 80, heaviness in heart and brain. But I never took any medicines at any time for these ever.

These days my blood pressure is 110/70 and my pulse rate is 70 to 90.

Recently in May 2017 I got my serum creatinine checked. The test reports are given below. These test report show my serum creatinine at 0.78 and 0.65 which is very good overall.

However I would like to add that excessive dehydration can cause death as well. There are some standards that should be laid down for people to follow. Hydration / Dehydration cycles is the only possible cure for every disease including cancer and AIDS.

Hope we can use hydration / dehydration to improve our health.
