Is Milk Bad for ARPKD (Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease)Milk is not bad for ARPKD (Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease) patients if patients take it moderately. In general, if someone is on a kidney diet, they are suggested to limit milk intake, since high levels of phosphorus, potassium and calcium in something like low-fat milk are not good for kidney disease patients.

If your child have kidney disease, you’d better consult your doctor or dietitian to make a diet plan. They will give you suggestion based on the blood test report of the children. You can also email to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty can also help you for free.

Why is milk limited for ARPKD patients?

as mentioned above, milk is rich in calcium and phosphorous. Damaged kidneys are not able to keep these two minerals in balance in the blood and bone. Therefore, patients are suggested to take mild with limitation. In general, one cup of milk each day is fairly enough for protein supple.

Are there any alternatives to milk for ARPKD patients?

Yes. Soy milk, nondairy creamer, rich milk and almond milk can be taken. However, some of these products do contain significant amounts of potassium and/or phosphorous, so it’s important to check the labels.
