Diet and Care for 17mmx16mm Kidney CystKidney cyst is a fluid-filled sac that can cause kidney damage, so it is should be carefully treated. This article is about the diet and care 17mmx16mm for kidney cyst.


-Fresh vegetables and fruits: Cucumber, cabbages, lettuce, cauliflower, celery and red bell peppers are good choices for kidney cyst patients since they contain rich vitamins and many minerals like iron, potassium and calcium for the body;

Fruits like cranberry, cherries, lemons, pomegranate and watermelon are recommended to be consumed. They are rich in antioxidants that are helpful for preventing inflammations in the urinary tract.

-Water: If kidney cyst patient can still urinate normally, he or she is suggested to take plenty of water. As the most natural cleaner of the kidneys, water should also be added into the diet plan.


17mmx16mm kidney cyst is not so big but may also cause some discomforts such as back pain, side pain, headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, etc.

Massage may be helpful for relieving pain, but should be taken carefully. The kidney area should not be compressed, since the pressure may cause kidney cyst burst.

What’s more, kidney cyst patients should avoid taking strenuous activities like basketball, football, boxing and baseball, etc, because they make kidney cyst burst. Yet, some mild exercise like swimming, walk, biking and Tai Chi are recommended.


If you depend on shrinking kidney cyst just by diet and home care, you are totally wrong. They have not been reported to play a role in shrinking kidney cyst, and medication should not be ignored.

I recommend you to take Chinese herbal medicines. Unlike over-the-counter medicines, Chinese herbs are very natural and can shrink kidney cyst by inhibiting the activity of epithelial cells of cystic walls, so that they won’t secrete fluid any more. As a result, kidney cyst can be shrunk from the root.
