Although I don't have it myself polycystic kidney disease runs in my family and the advice we've all been given is to eat a regular healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables and not too much animal protein.

As far as athletic performance goes protein requirements will be met automatically on almost any mixed diet if your calorie intake is adequate so it's unusual for anyone who isn't dieting to actually need supplements. It's worth noting also that carbohydrates have a significant protein sparing effect and this may be an important consideration for anyone needing to restrict their protein intake for whatever reason.
