Is Mask Wearing Killing Your Kidneys?

Here is some very interesting information on mask-wearing that I got from Dr. Colleen Huber. She comments on a urinalysis test is from a patient who is a long time mask wearer that came in complaining of some health issues – frequent urination.  Note the pH level in this person's Kidneys!  
Now read why this can be deadly.

The patient wears a mask several hours per day. Here's what happened to the urine. An obstructed air-flow kept more carbon dioxide for an extended time in masked airspace, which means more carbon dioxide in the lungs (hypercapnia), which in turn lowers your urinary pH and increases acid condition (respiratory acidosis). This situation overwhelms your body's compensatory and protection mechanisms. 


The kidneys now have a hard job dumping excess acid. How do the kidneys get rid of excess acid? They need to excrete that acid in the urine.  Urinalysis shows very low pH  (bottom of the chart: pH = 5.0)

That's about as acid as coffee – which is fine for coffee, but not so great for urine.  This is reflected in what got taken from the blood (remembering that kidneys' main job is to clean the blood, by excreting less than ideal substances into urine for disposal).

The essential situation is that masks, by way of the lungs, not only harm the brain, by inducing hypoxia, but also it leads to rapid heart rates (tachycardia). Moreover, the immune system is compromised by elevated acid levels.  Remember, acid favors viral replication! This puts incredible pressure on your kidneys to carry you though. 

I am concerned that the hematuria and proteinuria may also result from this strain on the kidneys. As nephrologist Dr. Humphries says, “If you wear a mask, I hope you have strong kidneys.”


Organs, other than the kidneys, have shown strain under mask use as well, which seems to be widely acknowledged, but apparently not very alarming to mask-wearers. For example:

It is widely acknowledged that people wearing masks often suffer headaches, foggy thinking, or lightheadedness. But this only seems to affect the brain, which is notoriously oxygen-hungry. So perhaps the brain's O2 needs are not seen as the most urgent consideration.

Also, many people have noticed higher heart rates while wearing a mask. This is because low available oxygen forces the heart to beat faster, to rush red blood cells around to the various body systems to try to meet ongoing needs, particularly the oxygen-greedy brain.

But perhaps that added strain on the heart is taken in stride, stoically, due to the compulsion to wear a mask.  This factor is likely what is causing the frequent urination.

As mask use lowers oxygen intake, while increasing carbon dioxide accumulation in the lungs, this leads to the acidic condition of hypercapnia. As mentioned earlier, it is long-known and well-established that acidic conditions favor viral replication. Perhaps the public realizes that COVID19 is not nearly as lethal as the US media portrays it to be? 

So, therefore, mask impairment of the immune system’s ability to fight viruses seems to be accepted by those who advocate mask use as a necessary disadvantage.

Once corporations, who jump on the “virtue signaling bandwagon”, realize that this information means that the corporations will become liable for damages to anyone who is harmed by their ignorant and unfounded mandates to wear masks, I wonder if they will have a sober second thought?  

Regardless, when Dr. Huber posted the urinalysis screening from the anonymous mask-wearer, it surprised many people and seemed to generate far more attention and anxiety than she had imagined. Apparently, kidney health is seen by some people as more urgent than that of other organs.

So neither the brain, nor the heart, nor – even in 2020 – the immune system, command priority over the urgent and trending zeitgeist of Masks-4-all. To my dismay, the kidneys may be the organs most cherished of all by many people. Interesting.
