Is It OK To Take Omega-3 With PKDIs it ok for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) patients to take Omega-3? Omega-3 is nutritious and it is also beneficial for PKD.

The following are some benefits of PKD:

1. Reduce blood pressure

High blood pressure is a common complication from PKD. Without treatment, it will cause further kidney damage. Omega-3 lowers blood pressure to some extent. This can do some help for PKD patients.

2. Reduce the risk of heart disease

Fish and long-chain omega-3 fatty acid reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and total mortality in diabetic women.

3. Prevent inflammation

Omega-3 fatty acid can decrease inflammation. This can prevent further kidney damage.

4. Fight autoimmune diseases

In autoimmune diseases like IgA Nephropathy, Lupus Nephritis and Purpura Nephritis, the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign cells and starts attacking them. Omega-3 can help fight some of these diseases. Studies show that getting enough omega-3 is linked to a reduced risk of many autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes, autoimmune diabetes in adults and lupus, etc.

5. Improve bone and joint health

Omega-3 can improve bone strength by increasing the amount of calcium in bones. This can lead to a reduced risk of osteoporosis. Bone problem is also a common complication in kidney patients. It is necessary for PKD patients to consume omega-3 to prevent bone problems.
