Is Drinking More Water and Walking Good for PKDPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder which causes a cluster of cysts on kidneys. Is drinking more water and taking walking good for PKD? Now let me explain to you. Any questions, please leave a message below or email to

Why does my doctor recommend me to drinking more water?

Water is the most natural flusher of urinary tract. Drinking more water is to prevent bacteria from sticking on the tract. Polycystic Kidney Disease patients are likely to have urinary tract infection (UTI), which is more common in women. The kidney cysts enlarge and interfere with urine flow. Even a small delay of urine may result in infection. Without timely treatment, the infection may travels up and cause kidney infection.

In addition, drinking more water can help you produce more urine so as to accelerate the discharge of wastes and toxins.

Note: If the Polycystic Kidney Disease has caused kidney damage, excess fluid cannot be removed effectively, causing swelling. Drinking more water may aggravate this condition. Your fluid intake should be calculated based on your body weight and urine output.

How does walking benefit Polycystic Kidney Disease patients?

Walking is considered as mild exercise for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. Taking a walk for about half an hour is helpful for enhancing immune ability, so as to prevent from some infections. In addition, swimming, biking, Yoga and Tai Chi are also good choices.


Except for a balanced diet and moderate exercise, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients need more treatment to protect kidney function. I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbal medicines. They can expand blood vessels to improve blood circulation. Therefore, cystic fluid can absorbed and discharged effectively. More over, they can promote kidney function by repairing damaged renal tissues. That is to prevent the cyst from growing again.
