Low Protein Diet for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)Low protein diet is sometimes necessary if Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients have impaired kidney function. I would like to share with you some suggestions. As for your won condition, you can email to us at or leave a message below.

What is a low protein diet?

When protein breaks down in the body, it produce some waste like urea. This substance is discharged by kidneys. However, damaged kidney’s filtering function is disordered, resulting in large amount of waste to build up in the body. Therefore, patients need to limit the protein intake.

In general, recommended amount of protein is 0.6-0.8 gram per kg of body weight. You are suggested to ask the dietitian or doctor to calculate how much protein you can take.

Suggested foods for PKD

High-quality protein foods are good for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients if they are required to maintain a low protein diet. Egg white, lean meat, fish and milk are good choices. These foods can not only reduce the burden on kidneys but can also meet the body’s nutrition meets.

Treatment for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Except for dietary restrictions, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients also need to take medications to slow down the progression of this kidney disease. In that case, I recommend you to take:

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: The effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly with osmotic device. They inactivate the epithelial cells of cystic walls so that no more fluid is secreted and kidney cyst growth will stop.

-Medicated Bath: Polycystic Kidney Disease patients who take this method can have increased urine output and sweat. It means your body is eliminating waste and toxins in the blood. Therefore, it is good for improving kidney function. This is to prevent kidney cyst from growing again.
