Healthy Diet for Kidney Cyst
Q: doctor found a kidney cyst when I take medical test. I am a little worried. Do I need a special diet? Can healthy diet help?
A: kidney cysts are quite common but they cause subtle or no symptoms, thereby many people have them without knowing it. And as ages increase, the chance to get kidney cyst raises accordingly. In most cases, cysts are discovered incidentally during an ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI scan for some other health reason. The same to you.
You said you were worried, I suggest to you talk with your doctor and determine whether your cyst is simple or complex. Usually, kidney cysts are benign, but it is necessary to take further tests and find out whether it is cancerous. If you kidney cyst is simple and benign, and is mall enough, you doctor may suggest you take no treatments but regular tests.
As for diet, it plays an important role for your healthy kidneys, but it cannot replace treatment. It is a good choice to talk with your doctor about a personal diet. But if you have interest, here are some suggested foods which are good for kidneys for your reference.
