Peritoneal Dialysis for PKD

2014-08-04 02:37

Peritoneal Dialysis for PKDPolycystic Kidney Disease has been known as one of the most high risk of Kidney Failure. When patients with PKD are at the end stage, they are always required dialysis. Peritoneal dialysis for PKD is one choice, and the other one is hemodialysis. This article is to give the patients a general understanding about the effects, either good or bad, on them.

What is peritoneal dialysis?

With this method, instead of being cleaned by an artificial membrane outside the body, the blood is cleaned inside the body, through the Peritoneum. This is the thin membrane that surrounds the outside of the organs in the abdomen.

The peritoneum allows waste products to pass through it and is very rich in small blood vessels. By running a dialysis fluid into the peritoneal cavity through a tube and then out again, waste can be filtered from the blood.

How good is peritoneal dialysis  for PKD?

Peritoneal dialysis can help relieve symptoms quickly and effectively. You may see your creatinine and BUN (blood urea nitrogen) levels drop, blood pressure decrease, and pain become light.


Some of PKD patient cannot do peritoneal dialysis with large kidney size and high abdominal pressure.

What’s more, during peritoneal dialysis, infections, especially Peritonitis possibly occur. Infection is a dangerous side effect of dialysis on Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Despite of both benefits and side effects, peritoneal dialysis is just a kidney replacement therapy, but cannot repair the damaged renal tissues. In the long run, dialysis is not the best choice. Except for peritoneal dialysis, a natural treatment should be taken to repair the damaged renal intrinsic cells. Recently, a new development—Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has taken place.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for Polycystic Kidney Disease is effective and natural. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicines, but it differs from the traditional use of Chinese herbs which are usually taken orally and take effects with a long time. The medicines are micronized so that it can be fully absorbed by the kidneys. With special osmotic devices, the fluid can work kidneys directly by expanding blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, and degrading extracellular matrix. By these methods, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can shrink kidney cyst and improve kidney function with few sides effects.
