Is Baking Soda Good For Polycystic Kidney DiseaseMost of us keep a box of baking soda around the house. In addition to household applications, sodium bicarbonate has several medicinal uses. Is baking soda good for polycystic kidney disease (PKD)?

In people who have polycystic kidney disease, poorly functioning kidneys have a hard time removing acid from the body. This often results in a condition known as metabolic acidosis. Bicarbonate is an alkaline substance naturally produced in the body that buffers acids and helps keep PH in check. Besides, the sodium bicarbonate slows the rate of kidney function decline by two-thirds, and just 6.5 percent of the patients treated with sodium bicarbonate required dialysis compared to 33 percent in a control group. What’s more, drinking a baking soda mixture on a daily or weekly basis can help restore normal pH levels in your urine and prevent kidney stones.

Generally speaking, baking soda is good for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients. But it is not enough to treat PKD. In order to treat PKD, medical treatment is required.

As for the treatment of PKD, it should aim at shrinking kidney cysts and improving kidney function. In China, we use Chinese herbal medicine to improve blood circulation and shrink kidney cysts. Micro-Chinese Medicine is one of the most effective one. Chinese medicines are first micronized and then packaged into two bags. With the action of microwave, the medicines can come into kidney lesion directly through the skin and channels. The active ingredients have the functions of dilating blood vessels, speeding up blood circulation on cystic wall, and improving the permeability of cystic wall, which will generate pressure between the internal and external cysts. Consequently, the fluids in the cysts will flow out and be excreted through urine. Kidney cysts will be shrunk and gradually kidney function will be improved as well.
