Kidney Cysts Diet2012-12-09 09:33
Kidney Cyst is not a serious disease in most cases and causes no serious harm. Therefore, its diet should not make significant changes before no kidney impairment is posed. Rational diet and balanced nutrition become most important for those patients.
First of all, Kidney Cysts patients should better quit unhealthy living or eating habits so as to avoid possible problems. They should better stop consuming pickles, spicy or tainted foods. Why? This is because pickles contain high level of sodium, while spicy or rotten foods stimulate one’s stomach or lead to diseases. Spicy foods include pepper or alcohol etc. No matter patients with Kidney Cysts or healthy people, stopping consume too much sodium per day matters to them all. Excessive consumption of salt for a long time increases the risk of suffering from high blood pressure, which has no good to patients or healthy people.
There’s no need to restrict water intake as the patients with Kidney Cysts have no edema, high blood pressure, heart failure or other complications. Don’t blindly restrict water consumption per day before asking your doctor in the first place.
Other than dietary therapy, taking enough rest or avoiding abdominal trauma is beneficial for those patients. Taking regular physical examination like half a year, those checks should include high blood pressure measurement, B ultrasound, kidney function examination and urinalysis etc.
If the patients have no complication or symptom, then there’s no need to cut down their consumption of protein. However, reducing intake of protein and trying to eat foods high in quality protein are suggestions for them. High fiber, high vitamin and low fat foods are beneficial for not just those patients but healthy people.
Since those Kidney Cysts patients still have no kidney impairment, then there’s no need to restrict their intake of various fruits or vegetables. Taking electrolyte level check is recommended just for their own sake in order not to cause any imbalance of electrolytes.
