Can I Do Weight Lifting with PKD

Can I Do Weight Lifting with PKDPolycystic Kidney Disease is characterized by a cluster of kidney cysts. With the progression of PKD, patients may have high blood pressure easily. To build up muscle and manage blood pressure, some patients try to do some exercise. Can PKD patients do weight lifting?

PKD usually progresses slowly, because kidney cysts grow gradually. As enlarged kidney cysts begin to replace kidney functioning tissues, patients may have back pain, high blood pressure, urinary tract infections, hematuria, and some other health problems one by one.

Generally, kidney disease patients are suggested to do gentle exercise regularly to fight against kidney related complications. However, because PKD is different from other types of chronic kidney disease, patients should choose exercise carefully. Most often, they should consider the following conditions, when they prepare to do exercise.

1. Check out whether they have urinary tract infection and hematuria. If PKD patients have these two problems which are severe, they had better avoid exercise and have more rest in bed.

2. Avoid strenuous exercise and bending or stretching movements: With the growth of kidney cysts, enlarged kidney cysts will rupture easily. In this case, strenuous exercise and bending or stretching movements will cause kidney cyst to burst. Then, sac fluid will spread to the surrounding kidney tissues and other organs, resulting in a series of symptoms and complications.

From the above analysis, we can know PKD patients had better not do weight lifting, because it may make kidney cyst rupture.

For patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease, we would like to recommend gentle exercise such as walking, jogging, Taichi, swimming, and so on. These types of exercise can not only build up patients’ body but also help manage high blood pressure, the common complication of PKD.
