Size of Belly After Kidney Transplant in PKDQuestion: I had a transplant of kidney in 2008. All reports till three months have been normal. But lately my belly is bloating and every year i am putting on weight by five kg. These days my belly is bloating from the above the center of the stomach too, especially after I eat food. Important I am on insulin wit sugar levels normal. Please tell me how to treat the enlarged size of belly.

Answer: Thank you for your question. Firstly, I would like to tell you why the belly enlarges in PKD. In the early stage of PKD, the cysts are small so that they don't oppress their surrounding kidney tissues. However, as these cysts grow, they can cause enlarged kidney and kidney damage. When the kidney can’t do its job normally, swelling occurs easily as a consequence of fluid and sodium retention. As a result, abdomen enlarges due to swollen abdomen and enlarged kidney. As your kidneys enlarges, your belly will becomes big as well. Sometimes, the patients with enlarged belly look like pregnant. Size of the belly depends how well the kidney is functioning. So you’d better send me more detailed information such as your age, gender, physical condition and medical history. I hope I can give you more specific suggestions.
