I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
I have Polycystic Kidney Disease and liver cysts, the bigger cyst is 5cm. I am looking for available dietary advice. Could you give me some good suggestions?
Hello, friend. Sorry to hear from you, but I will do our best to help you. About the diet, here are some advice in your daily life. You should follow the diet and it will do you some help.
1. PKD patients should have a diet with low salt, low fat and low protein. They should avoid beef and mutton, animal innards as well as spicy food. In addition, uncooked and some cold foods should also be limited.
2. More fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C should be recommended to patients. Besides, those foods that have the functions of dissolving stones and diuresis should be eaten more.
3. PKD patients should avoid alcohol, tobacco, strong tea and foods and drinks containing caffeine.
4. Patients should also have a low-potassium diet. Patients with kidney damage are prone to suffer from high potassium level. Therefore, a balanced potassium diet is very important.
Diet control is helpful in controlling cysts but fails to treat cysts. You should pay more attention to the treatment on shrinking the cysts, repairing damaged kidneys and recovering damaged renal function. That’s the right treatment and really can help you deal with your disease. After all, cyst5 cm is so large that it can lead to numerous symptoms like blood urine, back pain, high blood pressure and so on. Therefore, a medical treatment is also necessary.
