My doggie has it. I doubt that helps you. Sorry you are not feeling well. You are right about the low protien, but its hard to eat well when you dont feel good. Try searching the internet for low protien/kidney quick fix meals.

my suggestion to you is first see a nutritionist. I am 35 years old and found out 9 years ago that I had PKD and I am doing great. no severe pain or growth. i do take medication perscribed by my renal doctor. I am the first in my family's history to have this disease. This is hereditary, did you speak to your family? good luck and make sure you have a great renal doctor.

My husband has it, had a transplant and is doing great! YAY!!!

Are you on dialysis? Either way, try to limit your potassium intake, it's hard for your kidneys to process, also really cut back on carbs. You really do need to get some excercise. I can't address you saying low protein, husband was told it's necessary (lean meats, chicken, peanut butter).

I would talk to a doctor about it. Dieting is taxing on the kidneys.

Ditto on seeing a nutritionist and talking with your doctor about this one. As it can be different with each person and your individual struggles and needs. But typically avoiding sodium, potasium, protien and all dairy products. Even fruits and veggies has its do's and dont's. for example no to carrots. yes to greens like spinich and asparagus.talk to your Dr about multi viatamins. As they help me quite a bit. my pesonal situation does not allow me to take advantage of the pkd diet because I am much to small to be on any diet at this time. my personal goal is to try to put on as much weight as i posibally can! And dairy products being in my case a must. etc. I hope that you are feeling better and that any of this might help. best of luck to you!
