Answer
The Doctor Answered:

So sorry to hear your child is diagnosed with PKD. As of now there is no treatment for this genetic kidney problem, but please do not worry as there is treatment that can help to stop PKD progression.

Firstly, you need to arrange a scientific diet for your child, as improper diet will accelerate PKD to kidney failure. Generally, you need to help him reduce protein intake and salt intake. Also, the exact intake of other trace elements is based on his test reports.

Secondly, bring all his symptoms under control. Abdominal pain is just one of the symptoms of PKD which may bring him more clinical manifestions like kidney growth, proteinuria, high blood pressure, blood urine, urinary tract infection and kidney infection with the progression of PKD. Try to bring these symptoms under control and this will help to slow down PKD progression.

Thirdly, go to effective treatment to shrink kidney cysts and repair kidney damages. PKD progresses as more and more kidney tissues are damaged. Effective shrinkage will help to avoid further kidney damages, which is of great clinical significant. Besides, by repairing injured kidney tissues, his kidney function can be improved greatly. At present, only Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy shows obvious treatment effects in both shrinking kidney cysts and repairing kidney damages, so you can ask your child to have a try about this treatment.

Your child is newly diagnosed and he has a great chance to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant, compared with these whose illness condition has run to advanced stage. Therefore, please do not worry and try to encourage your child and help him build confidence to defeat this disease.
