Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-09-24 08:34

What to Eat If You Have Medullary Sponge KidneyMedullary Sponge Kidney (MSK) is a birth defect wherein cysts in the kidneys prevent the free flow of urine through structures called tubules. For people with this disease, following a proper diet can help them reduce the risk for potential health problems, such as Kidney Stones. Then, what to eat if you have MSK?

An individual with MSK frequently forms stones, so they may consider methods to prevent the formation of stones in the first place. The increase of water intake and dietary adjustments are the first line of treatment to prevent formation of stones in the kidney. Follow these suggestions may be helpful:

▪ People who are likely to get kidney stones are recommended to drink at least 14 glasses of water per day. This can also reduce the risk of UTI.

▪ Eat a diet low in salt and animal protein also decrease the incidence of stones forming. Besides, reducing intake of cholesterol and caffeine.

▪ Increased citrate prevents stone formation, so people can take citrus foods and drinks like oranges and lemonade.

▪ For persons with specific stones such as those high in oxylate, avoiding those chemicals can help stop stone formation.

▪ Do not eat foods that are irritants to the kidneys, such as alcoholic beverages, radishes, tomatoes, condiments, pickles, cucumbers, spinach, rhubarb, watercress, asparagus, onions, carbonated water, aerated drinks, cauliflower and beans, etc.

Following a scientific diet of MSK will go a long way in curing the system and reviving it. For additional benefits, people can resort to yoga exercises, outdoor physical activities and brisk walking in order to save the kidneys from possible problems.
