Note one: prevent a cold
Having a cold, especially the constantly cold, can increase the risk of kidney damage in patients with polycystic kidney disease and accelerate the development of kidney damage.
Note two: Injury prevention
Continuous enlargement of polycystic kidney cyst will cause the intracapsular pressure increased. the injury can make cysts with high pressure rupture, bleeding, and be infected.
Note three: Control the blood pressure
High blood pressure will accelerate the damage of the kidney function, at the same time, high blood pressure will also damage the heart and cerebral blood vessel, which will make the polycystic kidney patients have a series of complications such as stroke. So it is very important to control blood pressure to delay the deterioration of renal function and prevent complications.

The patients should adopt a low salt diet, 2~3 grams of edible salt per day is appropriate, eat less food containing potassium or phosphorus, eat more food with low protein and low fat, eat more food rich in vitamin and plant crude fiber, and maintain smooth stool.
