Should Kidney Cyst Patients Consume Protein Diet or NotProtein is a necessary nutrition for healthy people as well as kidney disease patients. Patients with kidney cyst should consume protein diet. But they should take moderate protein and choose right protein foods.

How much protein should kidney cyst patients take?

A kidney cyst may or may not cause kidney damage. Those with normal kidney function can eat as other people. Yet, patients who have experienced some symptoms of kidney damage should follow a restricted diet. In general, kidney disease patients are recommended to take protein 0.6 g to 0.8 g per kg of body weight each day. You may need more or less than this range, according to your own condition.

What foods are recommended as protein sources?

High-quality protein foods can not only meet the body’s needs for nutrition, but also produce less wastes discharged by the kidneys. Recommended foods include egg white, milk, fish and fresh lean meat.

Other fresh vegetables like cauliflower, cabbages, lettuce and fresh fruits such as cranberry and pomegranate are also good for them. As you know, keeping a balanced diet is very important. Any questions, please email to or leave a message below. Our experts will reply you within 24 hours.

Treatment goal should not only shrink kidney cyst but also protect renal function. In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. the effective ingredients can inactivate the epithelial cells of cyst walls. Therefore, the kidney cyst wont’s secrete more fluid. In addition, Chinese herbs can improve blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well.
