PKD is a kidney problem that causes no symptoms in initial stage, but may affect all the body systems when develops to advanced stage. Therefore, trying to stop illness progression is very important.

However, over time kidney cysts become larger and larger. Enlarged kidney cyst put extra oppress on nearby kidney tissues and affect them from functioning properly, leading to the decline of kidney function. Alcohol in beer stimulate kidney cyst and can cause the further enlargement of kidney cyst. For this reason, PKD patients need to avoid drinking too much beer.
