Suggestions for Overcoming PKDAlthough there is no cure for PKD (polycystic kidney disease), you do not lose hope and confidence. There are still some suggestions they should obey which can help overcoming the disease. If you do have any questions, please talk with our Online Doctor or leave a message below directly.

It is well known that polycystic kidney disease is an inherited disease which is characterized with multiple fluid-filled sacs on the kidneys. And these cysts on the kidneys will be increased and get enlarged over time, which will oppress the surrounding kidney tissues and cause kidney damage. Therefore, PKD patients need to take care of themselves in their daily life, which is helpful for slowing down the progression of their kidney failure and make a better prognosis for them.

Diet suggestion

-limit intake of salt and sodium

-adjust protein intake: low amount but high quality protein diet intake.

-avoid the spicy food, sea food, and alcohol, coffee and so on.

-eat more vegetables and fruits which contains rich vitamins.

-limit intake of potassium or phosphate if their level is much higher.

Lifestyle suggestion

-avoid strenuous exercises like weight lifting, bending, football, and so on. On the contrary, patients should do some moderate exercise like Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Jogging and swimming and so on.

-quitting smoking.

Medications Suggestion

-for PKD patients, they also need to take effective treatment to control their symptoms like high blood pressure, swelling, proteinuria, etc, the well controlled symptoms can help slow down the progression of kidney failure.

-compared to the western drugs, I prefer recommending the natural treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is a natural and systemic treatment which can help promote blood circulation, increase the permeability of cysts wall and increase the cystic fluid secretion. In the ways, the cysts on the kidneys can be shrunk naturally.
