Foods for Relieving Pain in PKD PatientPain is the most common symptom in Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patient. There are indeed some foods can help PKD patients beat the pain and find relief. Yet, you should find the real cause of pain in Polycystic Kidney Disease.

How does pain occur in Polycystic Kidney Disease patients?

There are two common causes of pain in Polycystic Kidney Disease. First of all, the large kidney cysts occupy much room of the kidney, and compress nearby organs. Therefore, the kidney capsule is stretched, resulting in nerve pain. This pain is always chronic and dull.

Secondly, kidney cyst infection is another cause of sharp pain in the lower back, sides and abdomen.

What are the foods for relieving pain?

-Cherry: Cherries help reduce inflammation by neutralizing free radicals in the body and can also help to stop tissue inflammation. Anthocyanins, rich-contained in cherries, have anti-inflammatory properties similar to those in aspirin. Raspberries and, to a lesser extent, strawberries also contain pain-fighting anthocyanins.

-Olive Oil: It is a powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient that’s comparable to over-the-counter painkillers.

-Sage: This plant has been used for centuries as a traditional herb. it contains flavonoids that help to reduce swelling and relieve pain.

-Ginger: Polycystic Kidney Disease patients can add several pieces of ginger or make ginger tea to alleviate pain.

Traditional Chinese herbs for pain in PKD patients

Foods are indeed helpful for relieving pain, but cannot get rid of it in Polycystic Kidney Disease patients, since they cannot shrink kidney cyst. In that case, I recommend you to take Chinese herbal medicines. They can inactivate the epithelial cells of cystic walls, so that no more cystic fluid will be secreted. In addition, they can improve blood circulation to enhance kidney function and prevent from cyst recurrence.
