I am 44 and female, having Polycystic Kidney Disease. Now, one kidney cyst is larger than 2cm. I feel tired and nausea all the time. What’s more, I have difficult and frequent urination. Any advice for me?
For people with Polycystic Kidney Disease, their kidney cysts grow with aging. Generally, symptoms such as high blood pressure, high creatinine leve, urine changes, fatigue, etc, have occurred by age 40, because the big kidney cysts have been out of the kidneys’ capability. As these cysts become bigger and bigger, more and more kidney functioning tissues will be impaired.
Patients’ tiredness and nausea is usually due to the build up of excess wastes and toxins in the body. When the kidney functioning cells are damaged severely, glomeruli are also damaged so that they can’t play their filtration function normally. This is why more and more wastes and toxins deposit in the body causing tiredness and fatigue.
As for difficult and frequent urination, it is because the kidney tubular reabsorption function is damaged. In this situation, excess water can’t be reabsorbed normally that urges patients to urinate frequently.
From the above analysis, we can know the damage to kidney functioning cells and enlarged kidney cysts are the root causes of those symptoms. If you want to get rid of them completely, a treatment that can repair the damaged kidney cells and shrink kidney cysts rather than only replace kidneys to work is needed. Consult online doctor or describe your illness condition briefly to send the description to our email box: firstname.lastname@example.org. Either is OK.
