Answers: Patients with polycystic kidney disease should manage a proper diet. It can help reduce the damage to kidneys and preserve kidney function. There are some foods to avoid with polycystic kidney disease.
Restaurant foods are often loaded with salt and fat. Patients with polycystic kidney disease may have a decreased kidney function. There will be extra water in blood. Salt is considered to be the rich source of sodium, which with water will form water-sodium retention. The suggested salt consumption is 6-8g per day.
Canned foods and processed foods.
This kind of foods are not healthy. Besides rich salt, they also contains rich food additives, which are harmful to the health of our body, including kidneys.
Foods that contains rich caffeine should be avoided. This is because caffeine will trigger or increase high blood pressure by narrowing blood vessels. High blood pressure is a great risk of polycystic kidney disease.
