As the best specialized hospital for kidney disease patients in China, our hospital has gained great reputation among patients at home and broad. We have more than 30 years’ experience of using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and have helped so many patients get a better life quality.It is not common for people with renal cyst or kidney cyst to have constipation. This article is specially about the cause and treatment for this condition. Any questions, please consult our doctors online directly.


A renal cyst will grow with age. A wrong diet or lifestyle may also speed up the growth. When it becomes very big, it will press nearby organs, including the bowel. Therefore, the bowel movement are affected and constipation occurs.

Other symptoms of renal cyst

Common signs and symptoms of a large kidney cyst include:

-Blood in urine

-Back pain, flank pain and abdominal pain

-High blood pressure

-Nausea or/and vomiting

-Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

-Impaired renal function (rare)


Goal of treatment should not only controlling symptoms but also protect remaining renal function. You can do as follows:

-Maintain a good diet. You are required to take a low-sodium and low-protein diet to reduce the stress on kidneys. In addition, spicy and fatty foods should be avoided since they will stimulate the growth of renal cyst.

-Drinking plenty of waster. If you can still urine normally, you are suggested to drink plenty of water to flush the urinary tract, in case of urinary tract infection.

-Take mild exercise. Swimming, biking, walking and Tai Chi are recommended.

-Medicines. I recommend you to take Chinese herbs, since they are more natural and effective than over-the-counter drugs. Both oral medicines and external applications are available here. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Medicated Bath may be taken to expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, to inactivate the epithelial cells of the walls of kidney cyst.
