Is Iced Tea Bad for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Is Iced Tea Bad for Polycystic Kidney DiseaseIn summer, many people like ice tea, and so do I. For people with Polycystic Kidney Disease, they have some dietary restrictions, so many of them doubt whether they can drink ice tea. I have to say you’d better give up it.

Side effect of iced tea

The most commonly seen side effect of iced tea is the high risk of kidney stone. Iced tea contains massive amounts of calcium oxalates, which also serve as the prime constituent of kidney stones. The medical report explained that the presence of an excessive amount of oxalates in the body might prevent its removal through the urine. In turn, these oxalates aggregate and form crystals, which could increase in size and block the vessels of the kidney.

Kidney stone is one of the complications of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Accompanied by enlarged renal cyst, it will cause more serious pain in the kidney area.

Consumption tips

Drinking iced tea occasionally may not affect natural health to a great extent, but for some individuals, iced tea has served as the replacement for water as a source of fluid for the body. To prevent the possible damage of oxalates in iced tea to the kidneys and to natural health, it may thus be beneficial to consider plain drinking water or other fruit juices in replenishing that thirst.

Treatment for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Except for foods and drinks you are taking, there are some other things you should be concerned. You can take some Chinese herbal teas such as dandelion tea and nettle leaves tea. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help you not only shrink the kidney cyst but also improve kidney function. In other words, this therapy is to solve the underlying problem.
