Re: How does my alcohol intake affect my kidneys?
Hi there Zdred,
Don't know if you are still checking your replies, but I too have pain in my kidneys after a heavy night of drinking, and believe me, I know exactly where my kidneys are at and where the pain is at. I'm not saying that alcohol intake doesn't eventually effect your liver as well, but I'm sure that drinking heaps insult on top of abuse onto your kidneys- especially if you're having some trouble already. Mine has become so bad, that I have scaled back to almost no alcohol. I feel like it's retribution for all those years spent partying. For whatever reason, beer is especially bothersome- red wine is not so bad.
Anyway, good luck trying to figure this one out. I've spent quite a lot of time investigating it myself over the web and have put off going to the doctor for tests, tests, and more tests.
