The answer is yes, but the quantity of milk should be limited. Because some of the dairy products are accompanied with abundant potassium, phosphorus and calcium. Then are there some alternative products and other dietary plan?

For patients with PKD, soy milk may be a good choice. Study has shown that it can help slow down the progression of this disease to a certain degree. Even though, it is necessary to know about the ingredients before you decide drinking any milk alternatives.

We can conclude that diet play a significant role in shrinking cysts, and generally the suggestions are as follows:

Avoided foods

Spicy foods and stimulating foods such as chili, chocolate, coffee and shrimp as well as other similar foods.

Quit drinking and smoking

Study have shown that alcohol can not only elevate blood pressure but also stimulate the growth of renal cysts, so patients with this disorder are suggested to quit drinking and smoking.
