Can People with Polycystic Kidney Disease Eat MangoWith high reputation of the King of fruit, mango is loved by many people, some of who are diagnosed with PKD. However, can people with Polycystic Kidney Disease eat mango? This is our today’s topic.

As with people who have other kidney disease, PKD patients also have some specific dietary requirement. We know the growth of kidney cysts and complications are two main risks for these patients, so diet modifications had better help shrink kidney cysts or ease patients’ symptoms. Does mango conform to these requirements?

High blood pressure is the most common symptom in Polycystic Kidney Disease. A healthy diet plays an important role in keeping blood pressure in control. It shows that mango has ultimate vitamin content that is good for overall health. Rich in potassium and magnesium, mango is considered as natural remedy to lower high blood pressure.

When quite a part of kidney normal tissues are replaced by enlarged kidney cysts, patients’ immunity is usually lower than the general people’s. Mango contains high quantities of beta-carotene, which can help enhance the immune system of the body and makes it strong. In addition, mango also contains vitamin A that can protect us against the innumerable free radicals.

For people with PKD especially advanced PKD, they are more likely to suffer from digestive problems. The bio-active elements such as esters, terpenes and aldehydes present in mango are able to relieve patients’ digestive problems.

The last thing I would like to say is that mango is good for better sex. Some people who have kidney disease are easy to have sex problem. Mango contains vitamin E that can help regulate sex hormones and boosts sex drive.

Even though mango has so many healthy benefits for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease, it doesn’t mean all PKD patients can consume it. The reason is that some minerals in it are not suitable to consumption of people with several abnormal blood tests like high potassium level. In view of this, you had better consult the doctor before eating it.
