How to Lower High Potassium Level for PKD Patients

How to Lower High Potassium Level for PKD PatientsMost often, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) causes kidney function to decline gradually. When it progresses into moderate or end stage, excessive amount of potassium will build up in the blood. Then, PKD patients need to take methods to lower their high potassium level.

Because potassium in the body comes from the foods what we eat, reducing high potassium level should begin from developing a low-potassium diet plan. This requires PKD to eat low-potassium foods but avoid foods rich in potassium. Some foods are listed as follow. If you want to get a food list in detail, you can contact dietitians here through emailing to

High-potassium foods: Bananas, avocados, dried fruits, beans and pea, kiwi, sweat potatoes, ice cream, chocolate, pumpkin, etc, all contains rich potassium. Therefore, PKD patients with high potassium level should limit or even avoid these foods as doctor guides.

Low-potassium foods: Apples, berries, peach, pineapple, green beans, wax beans, onion, bell peppers, garlic, cabbage, and so on, all contains less potassium. That is to say, eating these foods won’t increase blood potassium level.

Following a low-potassium diet indeed can help reduce high potassium level to some extent, but patients may need to take some medical therapies in severe cases.

Dialysis is one therapy used commonly to remove extra potassium from the body directly, and peritoneal dialysis is more effective to eliminate potassium than hemodialysis. However, this therapy isn’t recommended unless kidney function is very low.

In addition to dialysis, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy is another choice worth a try and it can do more than only cleansing the blood. Because it absorbs the essence of Chinese medicine and Blood Purification, this therapy can maintain the internal environment balance including electrolyte balance and repair damaged kidney cells effectively.

To make PKD patients get rid of complications and symptoms from the root, some treatments that can help shrink kidney cysts are also needed. Only if all kidney cysts are kept under control, patients can live easier with this disease.
