Can A PKD Patient Smoke A CigaretteCan a polycystic kidney disease (PKD) smoke a cigarette? Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Therefore, it is not surprising to learn that smoking also plays a role in the progression of kidney disease. From this point of view, PKD patients had better quit smoking.

Why PKD patients are not allowed to smoke a cigarette?

Smoking can harm kidneys from the following ways:

1. Increases blood pressure and heart rate

2. Reduces blood flow in the kidneys

3. Narrows the blood vessels in the kidneys

4. Accelerates loss of kidney function

5. Forms arteriosclerosis of the renal arteries

In addition, smoking allows other toxins into the body. Studies have shown that smoking is harmful for the kidneys and can cause kidney disease to progress and increases the risk for proteinuria.

Stopping smoking was shown to help a person maintain kidney function. While quitting is difficult due to nicotine addiction, cravings and temptations.

Tips to stop smoking

Talk to your doctor about nicotine-replacement therapies like gums and patches, as well as medicines like Zyban to help you.

Chew gum, suck on hard candy, nibble on low calorie snacks throughout the day or make your meals last longer.

Try deep breathing or meditation until the urge passes.

How to treat PKD well?
