Because there is no a cure for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), patients are usually suggested to keep a reasonable diet to slow down the growth speed of cysts and the development of the disease. Here are ten foods PKD patients should limit.
Pizza. Most pizza crust contains much fat, such as cheese, butter and carbohydrate etc. Meantime pizza is made with rich salt and roast meat. All these can stimulate your impaired kidneys and burden kidney’s work.
Fast food. Most fast food is known as junk food, which is not only harmful for healthy people but also can be deadly factors for PKD patients.
Hamburger. Even though popular hamburger is, it is not a good choice for patients with PKD. Hamburger is rich in potassium and phosphorus and fired meat, which can be deadly if you have advanced PKD.
Curry food. Hot and spicy curry food or curry food with many flavorings should be removed from the diet list for PKD patients.
Pasta. The “regular” pasta which you usually get outside should not be a choice for PKD patients. Standard pasta is made with refined wheat flour, creamy sauce and cheese, which is really harmful for your impaired kidneys.
Alcohol. Alcohol should be on the avoided diet list for any kidney disease patients, including PKD patients. Alcohol is stimulating drinks which can accelerate the complications of the disease.
Cola. Cola contains many materials like caffeine and high phosphorus etc which are harmful for PKD patients.
Coffee. Coffee contains much caffeine which can stimulate cyclic AMP and speed up the growth speed of cysts to some extent. Meantime, caffeine can increase the risk of high blood pressure, thus worsens your polycystic kidneys.
Chocolate. Similar with coffee, chocolate is another major resource of caffeine.
Highly processed food. Almost highly processed foods contain more seasoning than other foods. This high processed food is higher in salt, phosphorus and fat, which will quicken the progress of PKD.
