Restricted Foods for ADPKD Patients

Restricted Foods for ADPKD PatientsADPKD, autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, is one serious condition for most patients and it may cause severe complications with the growth of kidney cysts. In order to slow down the progression of ADPKD, patients should find out restricted foods for ADPKD.

As the great excretory organ, kidneys are responsible for removing extra fluid, metabolic waste products and toxins. In order to protect kidney functioning tissues from further damage by enlarged kidney cysts and prevent the growth of kidney cysts, patients should restrict the following foods.

- High-sodium foods

High blood pressure is usually the first sign of Polycystic Kidney Disease, and high blood pressure is one dangerous factor to speed up the progression of kidney problem. To protect kidneys, patients should follow a low-sodium diet plan. Therefore, ADPKD patients should stay away from high-sodium foods such as bacon, salty drinks, canned foods, and so on.

- Incomplete protein

Compared with complete protein, incomplete protein can provide fewer essential amino acids for the body. When incomplete protein metabolizes in the body, it will produce more waste products and toxins. This will increase the burden on kidneys a lot, so patients should choose high-quality protein.

- High-purine foods

Kidney stone is one common complication of ADPKD, while the buildup of uric acid can induce the onset of kidney stone easily. Uric acid is generated from purine, so patients should avoid high-purine foods.

- Alcohol-containing or caffeine-containing foods and drinks

Because alcohol-containing and caffeine-containing foods and drinks will stimulate the growth of kidney cysts, patients with ADPKD should stay away these foods and drinks such as alcohol, beer, coffee, coco cola, chocolate, and so on.

The restricted foods should depend on patients’ illness condition. If you want to get a food list in detail, you are required to write more about your illness condition in the form below. We are glad to help.
