Cortical cysts in kidneys, spotted during MRI, planning to conceive, dietary recommendations

Hi, I ve just found out that I have simple cortical cysts in both kidneys, which were spotted during an MRI scan for my scoliosis . I know they are nothing to worry about, but my husband and I are planning to have a baby, and I wanted to know if they would affect the pregnancy in any way. Is there a particular diet I can follow to get rid of them? Thank you.

Nephrologist 's  Response
I would like to know your age and sizes of both kidneys and any family history of kidney disease. You pls check your serum creatinine, complete urinery examinations and 24 hours urinery and blood pressure. If everything is within normal limit , nothing to worry but do check up the same yearly once. Reduce high protien diet. During the pregnancy period take consultation with a local nephrologist
