“Should I exercise if I am diagnosed with Stage 3 Polycystic Kidney Disease?” some patients may worry about the question. In the past, patients with PKD are suggested to have more rest but the illness condition still keep progressing. In fact, one way to help the body is to exercise.
A person with Stage 3 PKD has moderate kidney damage and begin to suffer from the obvious symptoms. In the stage, a person is more likely to develop symptoms of PKD such as high blood pressure, enlargement of cysts, kidney pain, swelling, blood urine and so on. Due to moderate decreased renal function, the wastes and toxins will build up in the body, resulting in numerous conditions. For example, the fluid-filled cysts may grow. If too many cysts grow or if they get too big, the kidneys can become damaged. PKD cysts can slowly replace much of the kidneys, reducing kidney function and leading to kidney failure.
Well then, what’s the exercise plan for stage 3 PKD patient?
For the question, that’s need to depend on your current physical condition and past history of exercise. Generally speaking, patients are allowed to do proper and moderate exercise rather than intensive and strenuous exercises.
Pain may be caused by cyst ruptured or pulling other healthy tissues. Mind-body workouts including Tai Chi, yoga, and stretching, waalking, swimming, and rowing are recommended to help you stay as healthy as possible.
Avoid contact sports like football, basketball, as a blow to the enlarged kidneys may lead to further impairment, including burst or rupture of cysts.
