Is Vitamin C Harmful to PKDVitamin C is an antioxidant, which is excreted by kidneys. Is vitamin C harmful to PKD? Read on to learn more information.

Vitamin C has many roles in your body and has been linked to impressive health benefits. For example, it can help battle high blood pressure, reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, reduce blood uric acid levels and help prevent gout attacks, prevent iron deficiencies by improving iron absorption, boost immunity by helping white blood cells function better, protect your memory, etc.

However, there is some concern about vitamin C. Because vitamin C is excreted by the kidney, intake greater than 100-200 mg/day should be avoided in CKD to avoid oxalosis, which is the accumulation of the metabolic by-product of ascorbic acid. Many organs and tissues of the body can be affected by oxalate deposits, including the kidneys.

Whether you need to supplement vitamin C or avoid vitamin C depends on your medical condition. You had better talk with your doctor about it.

Besides vitamin C, you should pay attention to other aspects of diet. For example, if you have high blood pressure, you should reduce salt intake. If you have proteinuria, proteinuria should be restricted.

And diet should go together with medical treatment. The reason why your kidney function keeps declining is that the kidney cysts keep growing, which can impair kidney structure and kidney tissues. Here we recommend you to try a natural treatment. It is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This is a great innovation of traditional Chinese medicine, which can infiltrate the micronized herbs into polycystic kidneys directly to take effect. It can inhibit the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the cysts from enlarging. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be taken away.

After a short period of treatment, symptoms such as high blood pressure, back pain, hematuria and so on will get relieved. After a long period of treatment, cysts will shrink, and renal function will get improved. With the promotion of renal function, you can lead a normal life.
