Kidney Disease

Are there alternative treatments for polycystic kidney disease?

A Answers (1)

  • There is no cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Treatment is directed toward slowing the disease progression toward kidney failure. A diet low in sodium, fat, protein, and calories may help control blood pressure and slow down kidney damage. Exercise, stress reduction, and quitting smoking can also help control blood pressure.
