At the early stage of Chronic Kidney Disease, in general, kidney disease patients will be recommended to drink more water to help remove the wastes and toxins out of body by urinating, and prevent kidney stones happening. The limitation to water will be needed once there has severe edema or oliguria.

If there is no neither severe edema nor oliguria, it does not mean patients with stage 4 CKD can drink a lot of water.
