Kidney cysts and its types:

Kidney cysts are sacs filled with fluid that form inside or on the surface of the kidneys.

Types of kidney cysts are:

  • Simple kidney cyst:

It is a fluid-filled sac that usually forms singly on the surface of the kidney and, as we have said, it is harmless and is usually discovered accidentally while examining another problem.

Simple cysts are usually asymptomatic unless they have an infection or other problem.

Pain, frequent urination, and dark urine (blood in the urine) can be signs of a rupture or a simple cyst infection.

  • Simple cysts and hypertension:

Studies show that if a person with a simple and large kidney cyst has high blood pressure, removing the cyst will improve their high blood pressure.

It is very important that your kidney cyst is examined by a specialist doctor in terms of location and size. More careful examination will be needed if the wall of the kidney cyst is rough or if there is a solid inside the cyst fluid.

  • Polycystic kidney: PKD

This complication is divided into the following types:

  1. Hereditary polycystic kidney disease:

These types of cysts are divided into the following two types:

  • Dominant autosomal polycystic kidney disease (most common type) (patients between the ages of thirty to forty years are symptomatic)
  • Autosomal recessive renal polycystic kidneys (onset of symptoms at younger ages)
  1. Non-hereditary polycystic kidneys:

Predisposing factors for this type of kidney cyst are:

  • Age (the risk of developing a kidney cyst increases with age)
  • Gender: Men are more likely to develop kidney cysts than women
  • Individual habits (nutrition, etc.)


What are the side effects of kidney disease?

Simple cysts are usually without side effects, but multiple cysts can cause the following side effects:

  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney failure
  • kidney stone


Treatment of kidney cysts:

There are several treatments based on the patient's condition and complications. Including:

  • medicines
  • Drilling and draining the cyst and filling the cyst of the kidney with an alcoholic solution
  • Surgery with different techniques


Diet for the treatment of kidney cysts:

The following can help you heal kidney cysts faster or prevent them from developing:

  • Drink enough water daily
  • Your diet should be low in salt (sodium salt):
  • If you have high blood pressure or are over fifty-one years old, you should not consume more than one and a half grams of sodium salt per day.
  • If your blood pressure is normal, this amount should not be more than two and a half grams (more precisely, two and three tenths of a gram).
  • Eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day
  • Include potatoes (non-fried), pasta, bread and rice in your diet.
  • Eat proteins such as chicken, fish, and legumes, but avoid overeating animal protein, ask your doctor about your protein intake, and eat more plant-based animal protein.


You can use the following recipes to get the protein you need:

  • Avoid ready meals and fast foods
  • In people whose kidney cysts have reduced kidney function and have degrees of kidney failure, your doctor will recommend that you reduce your daily intake of phosphorus and potassium.
