Is Apple Good or Bad for Polycystic Kidney Disease PatientsMerry Christmas! Today is one great festival for us in which people often give each other apples on behalf of safeness and super food. Polycystic Kidney Disease is one common inherited disorder all over the world. Is apple good for PKD patients?

It is reported that vegetarian diet plan can help slow down the growth of kidney cysts and the progression of kidney disease. Apple is one great fruit for these kidney patients.

To prevent high blood pressure from worsening, patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease should follow low-sodium diet plan.

Secondly, apple is known to reduce high cholesterol and protect against heart disease. When Polycystic Kidney Disease develops into kidney failure, heart disease becomes the most dangerous problem. In this case, it is very necessary to prevent heart disease and cardiovascular disorder actively, because this can extend patients' life expectancy effectively.

Thirdly, apple is one great antioxidant source, because it is high in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. All of these compounds can help improve patients' immune system and prevent infections. For PKD patients, they are at the high risk of various infections like urinary tract infections. Patients can eat some apple or drink fresh apple juice to prevent these problems.

However, the above content doesn't mean all patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease can eat apple freely. This is because apple is also one source of potassium and sugar.
