Diet to Prevent Kidney CystsWhen the person is diagnosed with kidney cysts, it means some disorders have happened in his body. At this time, a healthy diet is required by him to inhibit the growth of these kidney cysts . How to arrange such a diet to prevent kidney cysts from growing? This is one of most important things that the person needs to know.

Develop a scientific diet to prevent kidney cysts from growing

Guarantee the intake of water

Some people think that as long as one person is diagnosed with kidney disease, he should limit the intake of water, because excessive water can increase the burden on the kidney and cause several complications. In fact, for kidney disease patients who can urinate normally, enough water is able to help remove more wastes and toxins from the body and keep a clear external environment for patients. Therefore, people with kidney cysts are recommended 4000ml of water one daily to keep their urine range between 2000ml and 2500ml.

Avoid coffee

Coffee contains rich caffeine that can prompt cell proliferation and the secretion of cystic fluid. In view of this, drinking excessive coffee is able to increase the growing rate of kidney cysts. Here, we suggest warm water, adding lemon juice, is the best drink for these patients.

Arrange a low-salt diet

A low-salt diet can not only help reduce high blood pressure but also keep patients’ urine volume so as to prevent the proliferation of kidney cysts, reduce sac fluid supply and avoid kidney stones.

Quit alcohol

Researches reveal that alcohol is able to stimulate the activity of cystic protein and then make the kidney cysts grow quickly to some extent. What’s more, alcohol is like to cause heart disease and high blood pressure, which are both life-threatening for these patients. Therefore, giving up alcohol is very necessary for people with kidney cysts.

Finally I would like to introduce herbal tea, because some types of herbal teas indeed have a big effect in improving patients’ kidney function and inhibiting the growth of kidney cysts. However, what herbal tea is suitable for the patient should depend on patient’s specific condition, so you can first tell the kidney experts online your condition and then they can help you find a suitable herbal tea.
