However, in other cases, they should draw your high attention. Over time, cyst will increase and enlarge. When cysts become big enough (more than 6cm), it will oppress the surrounding tissues and cells, triggering numerous symptoms. Once the cysts begin to press nearby organs, including the bowel, then, the bowel movement are affected and constipation occurs.
In addition, other conditions also can cause the condition for kidney cyst patients. In order to control or even relieve related symptoms for patients, they have to develop different dietary plan from the healthy people. In some case, they have to limit intake of fluid. And low-fiber diet also can cause the constipation for patients. And some medications also can induce the symptom.
