Cherry Juice For Polycystic Kidney DiseaseI have polycystic kidney disease and at present my kidney functions are less than 50%. I suffer from problems passing some small kidney stones. I have been getting unbearable joint pains in my knees, hips, shoulders, elbows and wrists. I read that cherry juice can help, is that true?

Expert: At present your problems are mainly joint pains due to gout and kidney stones. Cherry juice can help lower high uric acid levels in the blood so as to help treat gout and ease joint pains. It can also help prevent stone formation in the kidneys and urinary tract.

PKD patients often have gout and joint pains due to high uric acid when their kidney functions are damaged. Impaired kidneys can not remove excess uric acid from the blood and these uric acid will deposit in the joints and form crystals. Gout can cause unbearable pains or even disability.

Cherry juice is a natural home remedy for gout. Study has found that more than 90% patients have more than 50% gout attack reduction after taking cherry juice for 4 months. Patients that take both cherry juice and prescribed medicines to lower high uric acid have more significant reduction in gout attack than those that only take uric acid-lowering drugs and medicines.

As for kidney stone, it is a common complication of PKD and about 20% ADPKD patients will have kidney stones. Taking cherry juice can help prevent and treat kidney stones. Lowering uric acid can also help prevent stone formation in the body.

Cherry juice is high in potassium, therefore there is a certain safe dosage for you since more than 50% of your kidney functions have been lost especially if you begin to develop high serum potassium levels.

The more root problems are declined renal functions and continuously enlarged renal cysts in the kidneys. Only cherry juice can not help repair damaged renal tissues or improve renal functions.
