John, Polycystic Kidney Disease, Are There Some Restrictions on Diet

My name is John, and I was detected with Polycystic Kidney Disease recently. Is PKD curable? Are there some restrictions on diet?

The Doctor Answered:

As a life-threatening inherited disease, Polycystic Kidney Disease can be passed down from parent to children. Until now, there is no treatment for PKD.

And the followings are restrictions on diet:

1. Foods like bean, tofu and other soy products should be taken with caution. Because eating too much of them may elevate the burden of kidneys.

2. Coffee, chocolate and other caffeine-foods should be controlled strictly.

3. Fermented foods: Such as fermented bean curd, rotten eggs, etc. As these foods can stimulate the growth of cysts to some extent.

Except for the above restrictions on diet, you should also quit drinking, especially the wine, because the alcohol can stimulate growth of cysts.

According to what you have said, you are suggested to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, high-quality foods like milk, egg, lean meat are necessary.

A healthy diet can be helpful for you to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease. We hope that you can read the above suggestions carefully. Good luck!
