Why Does Patient with PKD Have Metallic Taste in the Mouth

I have suffering from PKD for more than ten years. Recently I always have metallic taste in my mouth even though I don’t eat any food. Why does patient with PKD have metallic taste in the mouth?

The Doctor Answered:

Why Does Patient with PKD Have Metallic Taste in the Mouth  Polycystic Kidney Disease is characterized by numerous fluid-filled cysts in the kidney. If these cysts are small, no symptoms will occur to warn patients of some healthy problems. The reason is that normally, our kidney is responsible to remove waste products, toxin and excessive fluid from the body. However, a lot of wastes and toxins will build up in the body if the kidney can’t do its work optimally.

When some of renal cysts grow too big or one cyst ruptures, they will oppress their surrounding kidney tissues and cause some severe complications. Generally, metallic taste in the mouth won’t occur until a large part of kidney function has lost and a lot of wastes depositing in the blood. At this time, protecting and improving kidney function is the best treatment to relieve this bad taste in the mouth. In addition, a healthy lifestyle and moderate exercise is also needed to help improve patients’ life quality.
