'“The cysts appear to be largely glucose-dependent,” Weimbs explains. In people with the predisposition toward PKD, the continuous supply of sugar in the high-carbohydrate, high-sugar diets of modern culture serve to feed the growth and development of the fluid-filled sacs.'

I'm very  skeptical. Remove all the carbs from your diet and what is left? Protein. and fat. We all know a high protein diet is hard on one's kidneys. People use low protein diets to preserve any remaining function prior to starting dialysis.

I am very sceptical as well because if there is a way to prevent kidney failure, the knowledge about it would be around the world within minutes, if not seconds.
Of course, there is the one or other diet which may help one person or the other, but generally speaking it is down to our own instinct and own research to find out what is suitable for us, especially since there are so many different reasons for kidney failure.
What helps in my case since pre-dialysis, dialysis and transplant is a vegetarian diet and everything is cooked/baked from scratch, no alcohol and no ready-made food and only very selected Restaurants, drinking lots of water (in my case from tha tab) and only buying coffee beans, never coffee powder etc.
Good luck wishes from Kristina. :grouphug;

Bach was no pioneer; his style was not influenced by any past or contemporary century.
  He was completion and fulfillment in itself, like a meteor which follows its own path.
