With high salt in potato chips, polycystic kidney disease patients cannot eat potato chips, since high blood pressure is often to be seen in PKD. High sodium or salt intake will aggravate high blood pressure, so patients should keep far away from potato chips.

2. High potassium in potato chips

We know healthy kidneys keep the balance of electrolytes like potassium, while when they are injured, they fail to keep the balance of potassium level in a normal value, easily causing high potassium level. High potassium level is very dangerous for patients, which often leads to irregular heartbeat and weakness. The irregular heartbeat can be threatening-life, so polycystic kidney disease are not recommended to eat potato chips.

Fermentation products. These foods can accelerate the rate of kidney cyst growth.

Alcohol can not only elevate high blood pressure, but also improve the growth of kidney cysts.
