Why does Polycystic Kidney Disease cause loose bowels?

Loose bowels is intestinal problem which is very normal. Dietary intake, infections and digestive disorders can lead to increased water in expelled feces, or loose stools. The content of ingested foods and intestinal infections often cause transient episodes of loose bowels.

Polycystic Kidney Disease is serious problems and is easy to cause renal damage. If the kidneys are affected, they cannot work normally to filter wastes and toxins produced by the body.

Ways to relieve loose bowels in PKD

- Chinese medicines

Traditionally, the doctor will prescribe you some over-the-counter medicines. You should make sure they are no toxic to the kidneys and will not stimulate the growth of kidney cysts. Meanwhile, consult your doctor about the proper dosage and frequency of the intake.

Here, I recommend you Chinese herbs, because they are more natural. In other word, they cause few side effects compared with over-the counter drugs. The available Chinese herbs include cinnamon, monkshood, dried ginger, grain sprout, hawthorn, poria cocos, and goldthread root. You can consult our online experts for the specific method.

Carry a water bottle and sip water throughout the day. Besides water, I suggest you drinking pulp-free juices, broths and caffeine-free soda. Your proper amount of fluid intake should be calculated by the doctor in case of swelling in PKD since your kidneys have been damaged to filter excessive fluids.
