Can I Work With Polycystic Kidney DiseasePolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder that is characterized by a cluster of cysts on both kidneys. It is so common in the world. Polycystic Kidney Disease patients also have a life to live, despite of the diagnosis. Can you work with Polycystic Kidney Disease? It depends.

Can I work with PKD?

As you know, the renal cyst is progressive. When the cysts become too large, they are easy to rupture due to some outside forces such as heavy labor work, strong activities or injuries. Therefore, whether can you work depends on what type of work you does and how far you PKD has advanced.

For example, individuals who have jobs which require moderate to strenuous physical work may find it more difficult to perform their tasks as their PKD advances. Someone with dialysis even can work. However, even those who have positions which require less or little physical activity may also experience challenges performing their job based on how their body is reacting to PKD. Much of it comes down to your ability to function effectively in your position while dealing with the changes occurring in your body.

Do I need to tell my employer if I have PKD?

Your choice to disclose to your employer that you have PKD could have an impact on your work. In some instances, it may help provide more support. In others, it could unfairly affect your career opportunities. The legal requirements in relation to disclosure vary. You should check with your state’s Department of Labor to learn more about the situation in your area.

What should I do with PKD?

If the PKD cause no symptoms, you can just leave it alone. A regular test to monitor the growth is enough.

When the cysts cause symptoms like back pain, flank pain, urinary changes, or high blood pressure, you should take measures to shrink kidney cyst. Micro-Chinese Medicine Therapy is a natural treatment and you can depend on it.

What’s more, you should protect your kidney area from being attacked in your daily activities.
