Diet for Stage 3 Polycystic Kidney DiseaseUsually, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is not divided into stages. If you have Stage 3 Polycystic Kidney Disease, it means the kidney function has been moderately damaged. Maintaining a balanced diet is very important to slow down the progression of this kidney disease. What is the diet for Stage 3 PKD?

Since diet is so complicated, and I cannot give you all details about what you should or should not eat. Here is a general introduction. Any questions, please email to or leave a message below.

Diet Suggestions

● Sodium. You should limit your sodium intake to less than 2 grams each day, because too much sodium may cause or aggravate swelling or high blood pressure. You are suggested to avoid pickles, processed foods, canned vegetables and fast foods.

● Protein. Damaged kidney function cannot filter wastes produced by protein metabolism. As for patients with Stage 3 PKD, they are recommended to take about 0.6 grams per kg of body weight. Half of them should come from high-quality protein resources, such as egg white, fish, milk and lean meat.

● Avoid spicy and greasy foods. In addition, you should drink alcohol with moderation. If you really want, choose red wine.

● Drink plenty of water if you can still urinate normally. Water is the most natural flusher of urinary tract, thus preventing urinary tract infection. You can also replace water with Chinese herbal tea. Dandelion, nettle, corn silks and uva ursi can be taken as your choices.

Natural treatment for Stage 3 PKD

You should take a holistic treatment for your illness condition. In that case, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is a composition of hundreds of Chinese herbs. With osmotic device, the ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can improve blood circulation to speed up the discharge of cystic fluid. They can also repair damaged renal tissues to enhance kidney function.
