Question: I have PKD and my function is down to 26 (or less). I am 66 and weigh 42 kg. My Renal specialist wants me to increase my weight and told me to eat more protein. I already eat protein (fish, chicken, nuts, seeds, and goats or sheep's milk). I understand that increasing protein intake would make my kidneys work even harder. I would rather take some safe Chinese medicine to shrink the CYSTS in my kidneys and liver than to increase my protein. What safe herbs can you advise me to take? With thanks.
