Taking a low salt diet

Many PKD patients are also suffering from high blood pressure. As we all know, taking too much salt can cause electrolyte disturbance and salt can also adhere to blood vessel wall. As a result, blood pressure is getting higher and higher. For this reason, doctors always suggest PKD patients do not take any foods containing a lot of salt.

Suggestion on taking protein

Taking too much protein will make patients suffer from proteinuria, so patients should limit protein intake. Furthermore, it can also help control high blood pressure and slow down the development of kidney failure. But to limit protein intake does not mean that we can’t take any protein at all. Because our body needs protein to support many organs to work normally. Therefore, we should take some high quality protein such as fish, lean meat, milk and so on.

Intake of potassium

For many kidney patients, it is very important to control the level of potassium. Our muscles and nerves need to keep a normal function with the support of potassium. What’s more, potassium can also affect on some heart problems caused by kidney disease. High blood pressure can also cause irregular heartbeat. Many patients are even dead because of the disease.
