Hypertensive Diet for Kidney Cyst PatientsHypertension can be the result of kidney cyst. In turn, high blood pressure will also aggravate the kidney damage and induce the growth of kidney cyst. If you are looking for hypertensive diet for kidney cyst patients, you can get a general guidance here. Any questions, please email to or leave a message below.

Several suggestions for hypertensive diet

● Reduce sodium in your diet

The recommendations for reducing sodium are:

-Limit sodium to 2,300 mg (about one teaspoon) a day or less.

-A lower sodium level — 1,500 mg a day or less — is appropriate for people 51 years of age or older, and individuals of any age who are African-American or who have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease.

Therefore, you should take kidney function test to check whether the kidney cyst has damaged the kidneys.

You are suggested to avoid process meat, canned vegetables and fast foods, while fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits like cauliflower, red bell peppers, onions, cucumber, cranberry, etc are good choices.

● Limit fat-rich and alcohol

These foods will induce the growth of kidney cyst. When the cyst enlarges very big, it will compress the kidneys, stimulating the kidney to produce more renins that can elevate the blood sugar level.

Other suggestions

Potassium, magnesium, and fiber, on the other hand, may also help control blood pressure. However, they should be taken based on your kidney function number and the blood test result. You can consult our doctors online.
