Will Drinking Plenty of Fluid Help Shrink Kidney CystQuestion: My age is 25 and I am Male. In USG report they found multiple cyst in my both kidney, and they advice to consume lots of fluids and to take USG after 1 year. I am worried now. I don’t consume alcohol and smoke, either. Why I have these problems?

Answer: I am sorry to hear about that. But you do not need to be so worried. Kidney cyst is generally benign. More than half of people can be diagnosed with one or sever in unilateral or bilateral kidneys when they are over 60 years old.

If the cyst is less than 2cm and cause no symptoms, you need not take any treatment. You doctor ask you to drink plenty of water is to increase your urine output so as to help your kidneys discharge more wastes and toxins. If you are not experiencing swelling, you can do as what your doctor tells you.

There are some other things you should pay attention to. Keeping a low-salt, low protein but high-quality protein diet is the basis. This can slow down the progression of kidney cyst. You can add herbs and spicy on your diet chart. Diet is such a complex topic that you can get detailed information by emailing to pkdclinic888@hotmail.com or consulting our experts online.

Besides, be careful when you take exercise because some strong activities or bending movements will increase the risk of kidney cyst rupture.
