Newly Diagnosed with PKD

My wife is newly diagnosed with PKD. Oldly enough, no one in her family has ever reported a history of PKD. She is very distraught after the diagnosis and since we have three yound children. Can you please offer me some information?

The Doctor Answered:

PKD is a genetic kidney problem. Although it is passed down from generation to generation, but there is indeed such a case in which people who have no PKD family history is diagnosed with this problem. Besides, PKD is easily confulsed with multiple kidney cyst, so I suggest you to make clear your wife is suffering from PKD or multiple kidney cyst.

PKD is inherited, so if your wife is really suffering from this kidney disorder, your children have 50% chance to inherirt it. In such a case, it is very essential for them to have regular examination about their kidneys. This will allow your children to have early diagnosis and treatment.

Besides, change the diet for your wife and children. For you wife, proper diet will help to slow down PKD progressison. And for your children, scientific diet will help to delay the occurrence of PKD. Generally, they need to limit protein intake and salt intake. In daily life, they can ingest some high quality proteind which can be found in fish, lean meat, egg white and milk and so on.

Besides, please remember your wife to bring all the symptoms like high blood pressure and proteinuria under control. This will help to slow down the progression of illness condition. Aside from controlling symptoms, she also needs to receive medical treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to shrink kidney cysts. Enlarged kidney cysts oppress kidney tissues and make them unable in performing function. However, when kidney cysts get shrunk, further kidney damages will be avoided and also illness progression be stopped effectively.
