Is There Any Diet to Avoid Polycystic Kidney Disease

Topics: PKD PKD Diet

Details: Hello, doctor! My mother is diagnosed with many cysts in both kidneys, and the biggest one is 5.0*3.5 cm. Our local doctor supposes it is Polycystic Kidney Disease. Is there any diet to avoid PKD?

Expert Answer

No, there isn’t. Until now, there is no therapy that can help prevent the onset of Polycystic Kidney Disease, let alone a food therapy. PKD is one inherited kidney disorder that causes numerous cysts to develop in both kidneys. With the expansion of kidney cysts, they will replace more and more kidney functioning tissues.

Although a healthy diet plan is unable to avoid PKD, it is indeed helpful to control Polycystic Kidney Disease complications and slow down the progress of PKD. For PKD patients, they are recommended to develop a diet plan with low sodium, low protein and low fat. Besides, they can add bean, flaxseed oil, cranberry juice and some other foods into their meal plan. Therefore, patients can get a lot of benefits from this scientific diet plan.

In addition to diet plan, the patient also needs to accept some medical therapies that can help shrink kidney cysts and protect the remaining kidney function tissues. As long as kidneys can work normally, patients don’t need worry any more.
