A Healthy Diet for People Suffering from PKDEven though only depending on a healthy diet can’t treatment your Polycystic Kidney Disease completely, what you eat does have a real effect on how fast your condition progresses. This is because a well planned diet can not only ease your symptoms but also slow down the growth of kidney cysts. Today, you can learn how to develop a healthy diet for people suffering from PKD.

Once people are diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease, most of them treat fruits and vegetables as their best diet choices, but in fact, not all fruits and vegetables are suitable for people suffering from PKD. Since the sac fluid in PKD contains urea, urea acid, creatinine, etc, foods high in oxalic acid can enlarge your kidney cysts.

Drink more water

Some papers have revealed that drinking enough water is able to help treat Polycystic Kidney Disease. Although no exact research has proven it, taking relatively more water indeed can bring you some benefits if your kidney function is still normal.

Avoid alcohol and beer

Alcohol and beer is able to stimulate the activity of protein in cyst cells and then increases the growing rate of cysts. In addition, they can also worsen patients’ symptoms such as high blood pressure, so you had better give up alcohol and beer.
