Relationship Between PKD and DiverticulitisDiverticulitis is a common digestive disease which involves the formation of pouches (diverticula) within the bowel wall. Well then, what is the relationship between PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) and diverticulitis?

Link between Polycystic Kidney Disease and diverticulitis

Diverticulitis is one of the possible complications of Polycystic Kidney Disease. This problem maybe due to infection or less fiber-rich foods. You can send your test report to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty can help you analyze it and give you some suggestions.

Recommended foods for diverticulitis

You can do a google search about what foods to tomato seeds, raspberry seeds, little things that can get stuck in the diverticula and cause problems. High fiber is important as it helps to scrub the colon and keep things healthy. The problem arises when the renal diet comes into play because many high fiber foods are also high potassium and/or high phosphorus. You can eat lots of fibre (he takes supplementary psyllium fibre as well) and avoid processed foods.

You might ask your doctor if you can take psyllium (like Benefibre, although it's way cheaper if you get it at a health food store) to improve the condition of your colon. Part of the problem for dialysis patients is that high fiber needs lots of water and obviously that can't happen depending on the mode of D. Here's just one article that addresses the problem of diverticulosis.


To solve this problem from the root, medication should aim at shrinking kidney cysts and improve kidney function. I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs.
