Polycystic Kidney Disease with High Blood Pressure and Headaches

I am a patient with PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease). And I have high blood pressure and headache. There are some PKD friends around me finally develop kidney failure and take dialysis treatment. Could you help you avoid avoid dialysis treatm

Answer
The Doctor Answered:

You said your blood pressure is high. I suggest you start taking antihypertensives like ACEI or ARB to control your blood pressure. It is better for you to do a CT scan of brain in case there is cerebral aneurysm which is a common complication of PKD.

Generally, patients with PKD will have high blood pressure in 30s, high serum creatinine in 40s and kidney failure in 50s. The earlier the treatment, the better. Please don't worry. If you receive treatment actively, there is still hope for you to prevent kidney failure and dialysis treatment.

we use Chinese herbal medicine to restrain the proliferation of lining cells of the cysts so as to prevent the enlarging of the cysts. For the big cysts, micro-Chinese medicine can dilate the blood vessels, improve the microcirculation on the cysts walls, thus improving the permeability of the cysts walls and shrinking the cysts. The cyst liquid will be gradually reabsorbed and discharged out with blood circulation. Generally, after 10 days' treatment, we can feel the cysts become soft. After the blood and oxygen supply in the kidneys become better, the kidney function will also improve.
