When Should Patients with PKD Start DialysisIn the several decades, most people with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) can live without any symptom. However, as the cysts in the kidney grow, they will oppress their surrounding kidney tissues and cause kidney damage. Over time, patients with advanced PKD are more likely to begin dialysis. When should patients with PKD start dialysis? Is there a treatment to help them avoid dialysis?

When should patients with PKD start dialysis?

High creatinine level, low kidney function and severe complications are three main factors that determine the time patients need dialysis. Among them, kidney function is the leading determining factor. Generally, when patients’ kidney function drops to 15% or less, they have to rely on dialysis or kidney transplant to live. In addition, creatinine 5.0 and severe complications may also remind patients to begin dialysis. From this analysis, we can know if the person with PKD hopes to avoid dialysis, he must keep his kidney from deteriorating and improve their kidney function. The later is more important than the former. Therefore, today we mainly talk about how to improve patients’ kidney function.

Improve patients’ kidney function

The kidney damage is due to poor blood and oxygen supply to the kidney cells. If the kidney cells can’t get enough nutrition, they will be impaired gradually. To make them alive again, enough blood and oxygen is obbligato. Here, we recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which can extend blood vessels, degrade extracellular matrix and increase the blood flow on the kidney so as to transport more nutrition to the damaged kidney cells. With enough nutrition, the damaged kidney cells can recover gradually. In addition, it can also help shrink their polycystic cysts. More information can be found in the link “ Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for Polycystic Kidney Disease”.

With the above treatment, the time when patients with PKD begin dialysis will be avoided or at least delayed, so don’t lose your heart even though large part of kidney function has been lost.
