Does Cyst Effect Type 2 DiabetesKidney cyst and diabetes are two independent disease. In rare cases, they will affect each other. A small or simple kidney cyst won’t affect type 2 diabetes. However, both cyst and type 2 diabetes can cause kidney damage.

How does cyst damage the kidneys?

There are two types of cyst: simple and complex kidney cyst. Simple kidney cyst is usually benign, but the complex ones are always serious. No matter which type of kidney cyst, they will cause kidney damage when they become very large (3-5cm).

The enlarged cyst occupies much space and compresses the kidneys. As a result, the blood vessels are narrowed and kidneys cannot get enough blood volume and oxygen to work adequately. Therefore, kidney tissues are damaged.

How does diabetes affect kidneys?

Diabetics have high blood sugar level, causing sugar metabolism disorder. The products of metabolism build up on the surface of glomeruli, leading to cell proliferation. Thereby, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decline, and kidney function is impaired.

How to deal with kidney cyst and diabetes?

You have to manage this condition from two aspects: shrinking kidney cyst and controlling blood sugar level. To achieve this goal, you can do as follows:

● Make diet changes: Kidney cyst patients are recommended to stay away spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine beverages and smoking. Diabetics are suggested to take more fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, non-fat dairy products, bean, lean meats and fish.

● Take moderate exercise: Mild exercise such as swimming, biking, walking, Yoga and Tai Chi are all good choices.

● Medications: Never take medicine without discussing with your doctor, since some medicines can stimulate the cyst to grow and can affect the kidney function.

We treat diabetes and kidney cyst mainly by traditional Chinese herbs, because they are more effective and natural than allopathic medicines.
