So when the lots of body protein is eliminated,can PKD patients eat more protein-rich seafood to supplement protein?

The answer is no.

Because of the PKD precess,the patients’renal function is damaged too severe to excrete the BUN as well as creatinine.But the protein in seafood is mainly collagen of which nutritional value is lower.In addition,utilization rate of the human body is low too,so it will produce more BUN,creatinine,which will add burden on kidneys.

According to above,low protein intake is necessary.However,high quality protein intake must be improved,such as the fish,lean meat,etc.

The patients with PKD should be attentive to their diet and do not add the nutrition blindly.The wrong diet will effect the treatment of PKD.
