Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Patients Drink Jasmine TeaCan I drink jasmine tea with Polycystic Kidney Disease? PKD is one kidney disorder that can attack kidney functioning tissues gradually, with the expansion of kidney cysts. Since PKD symptoms are more likely to appear in moderate or elder age, most of them wonder whether they can drink tea, especially jasmine tea.

What problems PKD patients may have?

As PKD renal cysts grow, they will cause pressure on their surrounding kidney tissues and adjacent organs. Then, kidney functioning cells are damaged, and patients’ belly becomes big. Also, patients are more likely to suffer from the following symptoms and problems.

- Back pain, flank pain or kidney pain

- Kidney cyst rupture

- Urinary tract infections

- Blood in urine

- Anemia

Can these patients drink jasmine tea?

The answer is complex. For some PKD patients who still have normal kidney function, they are permitted to drink certain amount of this tea in their daily life. Also, they can get some benefits from drinking jasmine tea. On one hand, jasmine tea has a property of painkiller so that it is able to help ease PKD patients’ back pain. On the other hand, jasmine tea is able to help prevent and control urinary tract infections and its related complications, because of jasmine tea’s anti-inflammation effect. Therefore, jasmine tea indeed can help control some symptoms and complications for PKD patients.

However, not all PKD patients can drink it. This is because jasmine tea can irritate gastric mucosa, contain caffeine and prevent the body from absorbing iron. For this reason, jasmine tea will increased the burden on PKD patients’ kidneys and worsen their sleep quality and anemia. Thereby, if PKD has caused some damage to kidneys, patients have to avoid jasmine tea.

To be responsible for your health and safe, we recommend you to consult the online doctor in detail before drinking jasmine tea.
