Horseshoe kidney is a congenital condition in which the kidneys fuse are fused together during fetal development. A proper diet can help the patients mange the disease better. Usually, the patients are recommended to drink more water.

Urinary tract infection is commonly seen in horseshoe kidney and it is also a major factor in deteriorating renal function. If left untreated, it may lead to kidney infection and renal function decline. If the patients with horseshoe kidney drink more water, it can help to flush bacteria from urinary tract infection. Thus, it can reduce the risk of developing kidney infection.

On the other hand, it can help remove the small kidney stones. Kidney stone commonly occurs in horseshoe kidney due to slow urine blood flow. Drinking more water may help to flush out some kidney stones.

However, if the patients with horseshoe kidney develop urinary tract obstruction, they should reduce the intake of water. Drinking too much water can cause extra urine to linger in urinary tract and cause compression to kidneys. Thus, it may cause damage to kidneys and result in renal function decline.

Drinking more water is suitable for the patients with horseshoe kidney without kidney impairment. If the patients’ kidneys have been damaged badly, the kidneys will lose their normal role in removing fluids from body. Therefore, in advanced stage of horseshoe kidney, the patients should limit the fluids intake strictly.

Therefore, the amount of water intake should vary with the illness condition of the patients with horseshoe kidney.
