Excessive Urination and Polycystic Kidney DiseaseExcessive urination especially at night is a common complaint of people with Polycystic Kidney Disease, but few of them know clearly its cause not to mention its managements.

How does PKD cause excessive urination?

Doctors at pkdclinic say excessive urination can reflect some underlying healthy problems for PKD patients.

Too much fluid intake: Once you need to urinate frequently, first consider whether you have drunk too much water especially tea and coffee. Too much fluid intake can stimulate kidneys to produce more urine.

Urinary tract infection: In PKD, urinary tract infection is the most common cause of excessive urination. In most cases, urinary tract infection occurs due to large kidney cyst or infected cyst.

Mental stress: As with people with other chronic kidney disease, PKD patients are also easy to feel stress. If so, excessive urination may occur easily.

Low kidney function: Many people think only less urination is associated to kidney function, but in fact, excessive urination can also be due to damaged kidney. When the kidney tubule is impaired by large kidney cysts, fluid in crude urine can’t be reabsorbed by renal tubule so that kidneys produce more urine.

How to manage excessive urination in Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Restrict the fluid intake: It is reported in some paper that water can help slow down the progression of PKD. However, excessive water especially in cold weather can increase the workload on kidney and cause swelling or excessive urination. Therefore, drinking correct amount of water is good for PKD patients.

Use some antibiotics: Fruits such as cranberry have antibiotic properties that are able to prevent and treat urinary tract infections. In some cases, a healthy diet can ease infections largely, if necessary, antibiotics. If your excessive urination is due to infection, you can send an email to, so I can help you make a healthy diet plan and choose correct medicines.
