Polycystic liver disease (PLD) is a rare condition that causes cysts --fluid-filled sacs -- to grow throughout the liver. A normal liver has a smooth, uniform appearance. A polycystic liver can look like a cluster of very large grapes. Cysts also can grow independently in different parts of the liver.

Here are a few suggestions to try, gathered from among our collective experiences. Some foods seem to prevent a cystic liver from expanding. A few individuals have tested themselves by eating a food then withdrawing it to see if symptoms return or abate.

Generally speaking, diet low in sodium and neutral in protein seems to lessen Polycystic Liver Disease symptoms. Adequately flush the body daily by drinking sufficient water. Starting the day with freshly squeezed lemon juice added to a cup of warm water seems to help quiet symptoms, especially pain, discomfort, and bloating. Ending the day with chamomile or saffron tea helps diminish pain. Caffeine, coffee, tea, hormones, soy, estrogen, dry cleaned clothing, bleach, ammonia, growth hormones, estrogen disruptors, yeast, alcohol, concentrated sugars, chemicals, all increase cystic liver size.
