PKD and Creatinine 1.8: How Much Sodium Should I HavePolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder that can damage the kidney itself, leading to creatinine 1.8. How much sodium should I have each day?

Sodium intake per day for creatinine 1.8

Excessive sodium can cause an fluid retention and may result in high blood pressure and swelling. High blood pressure can in turn damage the kidneys. To maintain a low-sodium diet, you are suggested to stay away from salty foods and drinks, and opt for low-sodium versions of common food products (canned soup, bottled sauces, etc.) when available.

Your daily average range of sodium intake should be between 2 to 3 grams per day, and less perfectly.

Other dietary considerations

Except for sodium, you should keep eye on protein intake. Avoid foods that are rich in protein as much as possible. Red meat and dairy products can be especially bad for you. Dietary sources of creatine are most commonly obtained through animal products.

However, you should also need enough protein to provide energy. Foods in high-quality protein such as egg white and fish are good choices.

Avoiding phosphorus-rich and potassium-rich foods is sometimes necessary. Your damaged kidneys may have difficulty to removing potassium and phosphorous levels in the blood. Therefore, you should limit or avoid the following foods:

-Pumpkin and squash, cheese, shellfish, nuts, pork, low fat dairy products, and soybeans;

-Dried fruits, bananas, spinach, potatoes, beans, and peas.

Medications for PKD patients with creatinine 1.8

A restricted diet is indeed helpful but cannot solve the underlying problem. High creatinine results from kidney damaged caused by kidney cyst enlargement. Thereby, shrinking kidney cyst to protect and improve kidney function. In that case, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
