Dietary Tips for Patients with Kidney Cyst

2014-04-03 16:59

If a patient with kidney cysts does not follow the proper diet, the body cannot eliminate fluids and waste efficiently. As a result, he or she may experience many problems. Dietary tips mainly includes:

Low-Sodium Diet

Your kidneys help remove excess fluid from the body. When kidney cysts disrupt this function, fluid builds up in the body, leading to high blood pressure and swelling. Sodium is an essential mineral which can retain fluid to maintain fluid balance. So a low-sodium diet is necessary. Healthy kidneys remove excess sodium in the urine. If you eat high-sodium foods when your kidneys are not working properly, your body will retain more fluid, which worsens your high blood pressure.

Therefore, you should avoid high sodium foods, such as canned foods, table salt, seafood and cured meat.

Low sodium alternatives:

• Season with a variety of spices like garlic and oregano

• Use lemon

Fluid Intake Control

The kidneys are responsible for removing excess fluids from the body. If you get kidney cysts, you must avoid intake too many liquids, as your kidneys may be unable to regulate the removal of fluid. Drinking excessive liquids will experience swelling, high blood pressure, shortness of breath, and further kidney deterioration. The following tips may help you:

• Drink only when thirsty. Do not drink out of habit or to be social

• Eat less salt so you will feel less thirsty

• Brush your teeth three to four times a day; this is to prevent your mouth from drying out

• Suck on a lemon wedge

• Take your medications with sips of fluid

• Measure how much fluid your favorite cup or glass holds so you will be better able to monitor the amount of fluid you drink

place the water in a container. During the day drink only from this container so you can keep an eye on the amount of fluid you have consumed.

Being a patient with kidney cysts, there are many aspects of diet you should pay more attention to, for example intake of Phosphorus, Potassium, Protein and so on. If you want to get personalized analysis about your diet, please email us at kidneyservice@hotmail.com.
