Today I’m going to share some important information related to chronic kidney disease.

10% of cases of end-stage renal disease are related to polycystic kidney disease. Polycystic kidney disease has mainly been thought of as a genetic problem, and until fairly recently, many people thought you couldn’t do much about genetic diseases. But it turns out that you can.

Some of the top warning signs of polycystic kidney disease are increased risk of infection, urinary bleeding, reduced function of the kidneys, and high blood pressure.

A recent study done on mice found that the ketogenic diet halted and reversed polycystic kidney disease in the mice. They also found that time-restricted eating created a similar effect.

Another study found that the keto diet may reduce the risk of kidney stones as long as the person is also on a low-oxalate diet. Along with keto and consuming low-oxalate foods, consuming enough water may help reduce the risk of kidney stones.

In the study on polycystic kidney disease, they found that the cysts absorb glucose and are dependent on glucose. Glucose can contribute to other kidney issues as well.

A low-carb diet and fasting are both great ways to get your body to start making ketones. You can also take ketones.

The best natural remedies for kidney problems:
• Curcumin
• Resveratrol
• EGCG (in green tea)
• Quercetin
• Berberine

What I would do for chronic kidney disease:
1. Take the above natural remedies
2. Go on a low-oxalate keto diet
3. Do intermittent fasting
