What to Do When You Have Cysts on Both KidneysWhat to do when you have cysts on both kidneys? Well, the first thing you should do is to stay calm and positive. Next, let’s see what treatment you should take to deal with them.

First of all, you should ask you doctor to help you design a kidney disease diet

Even though certain foods cannot help you shrink your kidney cysts, they are good for preventing or relieving some symptoms when your kidney function start to lose.

You are required to limit protein, sodium, potassium and phosphorous intake. High sodium will cause swelling or high blood pressure. Too much protein will produce high blood urea level, which will burden your kidneys. And both potassium and phosphorous are two minerals that you should take within limits, since abnormal level of the two minerals will lead to some discomforts such as shortness of breath, muscle weakness, or itchy skin.

Therefore, processed meat, canned vegetables, fast foods, frozen dinner, nuts, dairy product, and so on, are all not good for your health, and you’d better avoid them.

Secondly, you must be careful not to be infected.

When you get infected, bacteria may travels to the kidney and cause kidney cyst infection. If the cyst get infected, you might experience sharp pain in the back, flank or abdomen. Antibiotics are needed at this time.

Thirdly, avoid strenuous activities and exercise that involves some bending motions. This is to prevent the cysts rupture due to strong pressure.

Last but not the least, you should take measure to shrink the kidney cyst if it becomes symptomatic. You should remember that the goal of treatment is not only relieving symptoms but also improve kidney function. Only by this way, you can solve the underlying problem, otherwise, you will see the recurrence soon.
