Diet restriction

When kidney function declines, patients are asked to restrict certain food, such as protein, fat, salt, certain fruits and vegetables, etc. Sometimes the patients may mistake the diet restriction into that they can not eat those food. If you can not get enough nutrients from the food you consume, you may suffer from weight loss.

PKD affects your appetite.

Poor appetite is also a contributor to weight loss. With the progression of PKD, your appetite may become poor, because your kidneys enlarge with time going, which may oppress your stomach. Besides, the impaired kidneys can not remove waste from the blood. The accumulated waste also affects your appetite.

Now if you are overweight, weight loss may help you lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol level, decrease your risk of heart disease, etc. If you are underweight now, you had better talk with your doctor to find what on earth causes your weight loss and then suit the remedy to the case.
