Can I Eat Turmeric with Polycystic Kidney Disease

Can I Eat Turmeric with Polycystic Kidney DiseaseTurmeric is one spice used commonly in our daily life. Polycystic Kidney Disease is one genetic kidney disease, and patients with PKD are always recommended to manage their meal plan strictly. Can Polycystic Kidney Disease patients eat turmeric?

PKD kidney cysts are typically fluid-filled, and they will grow to large enough to damage kidney tissues and push other organs. Then, these kidney cysts will cause some symptoms or complications including urinary tract infections, back pain, hematuria, kidney stones, and so on.

Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. It is reported that curcumin possesses anti-inflammatory properties, so it can be used to treat infections and boost patients’ appetite.

Another big benefit of turmeric is its effect on kidney cyst development and enlargement. Researchers at Peking University in China find that curcumin in turmeric is helpful to inhibit the formation and growth of kidney cysts, so it can be used to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease and slow down the progress of PKD developing into kidney failure.

From the above analysis, we can know turmeric is good for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. However, it doesn’t mean all PKD patients can consume turmeric. This is because turmeric may cause some side effect. ( In view of this, you had better consult the doctor online in detail before using this spice.)

The possible side effects may include nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, dizziness or diarrhea. If Polycystic Kidney Disease patients eat extra turmeric, they may suffer from a dangerous heart rhythm. Besides, this spice may also contribute to the formation of kidney stone, especially for people who have a risk of getting kidney stone. Finally, if patients have hematuria, they should avoid turmeric, because it is more likely to worsen patients’ bleeding tendency.
