Is Magnesium Bad for PKD Patients to Lower High Blood PressurePolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder that can cause impaired kidney function. High blood pressure is one of the symptoms of PKD. Is magnesium bad for PKD patients to lower high blood pressure?

Magnesium Intake and Polycystic Kidney Disease

If your kidney function is impaired by kidney cyst enlargement, your kidneys cannot filter extra magnesium. This high level may be toxic and can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure and, in more extreme cases, may lead to muscle weakness, irregular heartbeat and cardiac arrest.

Therefore, if Polycystic Kidney Disease patients have impaired renal function, they are not recommended to take magnesium for a long term. To lower high blood pressure, you can take some other natural treatments.

How to lower high blood pressure in PKD patients?

You should know that the root cause of high blood pressure is damaged renal tissues. When the kidneys are damaged, they will secret more renins, a hormone that can start the Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone System (RAAS), rising the blood pressure.

Therefore, the treatment should aim at improving kidney function. In that case, I recommend you to take :

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: This therapy is base on traditional Chinese herbs. The key effect of these herbs is to expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation. Therefore, the kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues.

-Foot Bath: There are many acupoints on feet. By stimulating these acupoint with traditional Chinese herbs, the energy flow can pass through kidneys smoothly. Therefore, the kidneys can function well.
