Re: can anyone help me out on Kidney Dehydrated?

I would venture to say that you were suffering a bout of hypovolemia, where the kidneys are not getting their normal blood perfusion. In other words, you did not have enough water in your plasma, and this lead to a decrease blood volume that is necessary to keep the kidneys properly functioning. This is not normally a problem with acute dehydration, as the kidneys can adequately adjust. However, as with diabetes, and other conditions that lead to fluid imbalances, this can be hard on the kidneys. Monitor your blood sugar scrupulously!
