Stage 3 PKD And Alcohol

Stage 3 PKD And AlcoholAlcohol is a common beverage in our life, and it is loved by many people, even by patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

For patients with stage 3 PKD, their kidney function is damaged moderately, and patients begin to have obvious symptoms in their body. But patients’ kidney damage may not cause very severe problems at this point. And for patients with stage 3 PKD who love to drinking alcohol, they may want to know whether it is allowable for them to drink alcohol.

Can patients with stage 3 PKD drink alcohol?

It seems stage 3 PKD patients’ condition is not so severe that alcohol must be avoided by them. However, alcohol is indeed a bad beverage for their health.

Alcohol can stimulate the activity of polycystin, which will promote the secretion of cyst fluid directly, so patient’s kidney function will be further damaged. Alcohol can damage patient’s liver, which will increase the decomposition of protein, and the increased metabolic wastes of protein can aggravate patient’s kidney damage, and cause many other health problems. Beside, PKD patients can have hypertension easily, while alcohol can aggravate hypertension obviously, because it can promote heart rate and influence the secretion of hormones that are connected with blood pressure.

Thereby, it is better for patients with stage 3 Polycystic Kidney Disease to avoid drink alcohol.

PKD is very dangerous for our body health, so patients should take measures positively to cope with their condition. If you need any help, you can leave us a message about your condition and problem. We will do our best to help you.
