PKD Food to Eat And PKD Food to Avoid

PKD foodA well planned diet can have a positive effect on slowing the development of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), controlling the symptoms of PKD and keeping the kidneys healthy for longer. Now let’s see the PKD food to eat and PKD food to avoid.

PKD patients should have a diet with low salt and low fat, beef and mutton, animal innards as well as spicy and stimulating foods should be avoided. It is better to avoid foods that contain higher amounts of oxalic acid, such as beets, spinach, cocoa and eggplants.

PKD patients should follow a low-protein diet. Kidneys are responsible for removing urea which is a waste product produced by the protein metabolism out of body. In order not to put a strain on kidneys, low-protein diet is needed.

If PKD patients have high level of potassium, then foods with high level of potassium like potatoes, tomatoes, acorn squash, broccoli, lentils and orange juice should be avoided. PKD patients can choose the low-potassium foods such as mushrooms, green peppers and onions and so on. If PKD patients have high level of phosphorus, chocolate, beer, milk, organ meats and cola drinks and other foods with high level of phosphorus should be avoided.

According to PKD patients’ individual illness condition, uncooked and cold foods which may injure stomach and spleen should be limited to a certain amount. Patients with PKD should take balanced amount of foods, neither too much nor too little. PKD patients can have more meals a day but less food each time in order to keep energy and nutrition that body needs.

Though the healthy diet can help PKD patients control the condition and slow the growth speed of cysts to some extent, the most important thing for PKD is to be treated by a treatment which shrinks the cysts safely and efficiently.
