Polycystic Kidney Disease patients should pay more attention on their daily diet which is a very important aspect in treating Polycystic Kidney Disease. As for diet of Polycystic Kidney Disease patients, some points should be noticed:
Protein limitation: In modern medicine theory, high or low protein ingestion
is both harmful to human bodies, especially too much protein intake. High
protein intake can produce more metabolic waste, such as urea, creatinine,
guanidines and other nitrogenous metabolic wastes, all of which can be found in
End Stage Renal Failure and toxin of Uremia.
Due to declined metabolic ability of Kidney Disease patients, besides protein
limitation and avoiding greasy food, slated food and spicy food as well as
pollutant food should also be avoided. A proper protein intake is beneficial to
reduce kidney burden and decrease incidence of End Stage Renal Failure and
Uremia, playing a significant role in relieving illness condition.
Salt limitation: salt intake should be limited according to patients’ illness
condition and severity of renal function injury. But not all Kidney Disease
patients need salt limitation.
Water ingestion: due to declined renal concentrated function, metabolic waste
can be excreted out of human body with more water supply. If patients do not
have obvious symptoms of Edema, Heart Failure and High Blood Pressure, they
should take in water scientifically.
Generally speaking, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients should avoid salted
food, spicy food, polluted food as well as broiled dishes. If patients’ illness
condition has developed into Renal Failure or Uremia, patients should also avoid
beans and bean production.
