Is Senna Pod Tea OK for PKD Patients

Q: I have Polycystic Kidney Disease and constipation. I was told that senna pod tea can be used as laxative. Is senna pod tea OK for PKD patients?

A: Constipation isn’t uncommon for people with PKD. Because of senna pod tea’s laxative properties, drinking this tea correctly indeed can help ease patients’ constipation. Besides, the large amount of sennosides in this herbal tea is able to stimulate colon function and increase fluid secretion of the colon. However, overdose of senna pod tea is more likely to cause some side effects:

● Urine discoloration

● Diarrhea and muscle cramps

● Nausea and vomiting

● Dehydration

If you have one or more the above symptoms, you can stop drinking this herbal tea immediately. Additionally, no matter whether you have these symptoms, it is better to use senna pod tea as a short-term treatment. Long-term consumption may cause dependence. Consult the online doctor to make sure the dose and the times you can drink this tea every day or every week.
