How to Manage Obesity with Polycystic Kidney Disease

How to Manage Obesity with Polycystic Kidney DiseaseObesity can increase the risk of high blood pressure, high fat and high cholesterol, which are also dangerous for Polycystic Kidney Disease. If PKD patients have overweight, they should take some therapies to lose their weight actively.

It isn't one wise idea to lose weight through taking weight-reducing medications, because it may trigger some side effects and patients may gain their weight easily. In view of this, patients should choose healthy methods to lose their weight and avoid kidney damage. From this point, we would like to give out several remedies to help patients control their weight.

1. Drink enough water

Water is the best cleaner for the body, because it can flush the body and stimulate the kidneys to produce more waste products and toxins via urine. This is able to help control Polycystic Kidney Disease patients' weight.

2. Stay away from white grain products and pasta

Avoid all white grain products including white rice, sandwich rolls, white bread, spaghetti, and so on. This can reduce patients' weight gradually. To reduce the burden on kidneys and control patients' weight, they are suggested to eat more vegetables and fruits.

3. Do aerobic exercise half an hour every day

Exercise is the most healthy way to lose weight, but its effect can't be found in the short time. Thereby, patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease and obesity should insist to do aerobic exercise for 30 minutes. Generally, patients can slim themselves down after about one or two months. Walking, Taichi, jogging, and so on, are good choices of exercise for PKD patients.

4. Arrange healthy eating habits

Firstly, patients should have more meals a day but less food at each. This is one way worth a try to reduce their weight.
