Stage 3 PKD, GFR 40 - but I love chocolate

Posted: by Varinder Tingh      Time: 2013-03-28 11:40

Topics: PKD

Details: I am in PKD stage 3 and my GFR is about 40. However, I love chocolate very much!

Expert Answer
Chocolate is many people's favorite, not only you but also me, while this food can stimulate the hyperplasia of cystic lining cells and the production of cystic fluid, so I suggest you should decrease its intake.

Also enlarged cysts can press kidney, cause short supply of blood in kidney, so renal cells become withered over time, renal function can decline. Many patients finally suffer from Kidney Failure, due to the unhealthy lifestyle and I really hope you can make a Healthy Living Management for PKD.
