The Recommended Diets to Avoid Polycystic Kidney DiseaseApart from the effective treatment, patients with Polycsytic Kidney Disease also need to keep a health diet schedule to prevent the further damage of the kidney disease. In case of Polycystic Kidney Disease, the kidney cysts in the kidneys will enlarge your kidneys and replace much of the important organs’ function, resulting in decreasing kidney function and kidney failure.

Dietary schedule plays an important role in alleviating the symptoms of kidney failure, slowing down the progression of kidney failure as well. As a matter of fact, proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and water are the essential components of a health diet, but for those with Polycystic Kidney Disease, there is some changes on these nutrients.

The recommendations for patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease are as following:

Certain studies revealed that soy protein found in soybeans has the ability of slowing down the deterioration of PKD.

Keep away from inflammation, anything which can cause inflammation can accelerate the growth of cysts in PKD.

Low potassium foods are also necessary for patients to take into consideration. The foods which are high in potassium aggravate the deterioration of kidney disease.

A vegetarian diet that is high in antioxidants is highly recommended by the renal doctors, the vegetables and some fruits can help regulate blood pressure and slow down the progression of PKD.

Since caffeine leads to the increasing blood pressure so caffeine-containing foods and beverages are poor choices if you have Polycystic Kidney Disease. Besides, caffeine is a risk factor to cause the enlargement of kidney cysts.

Patients need to take low sodium foods to regulate blood pressure, which also helps slow the progression of PKD.
