Can Lower Back Pain Be a Sign of Polycystic Kidney Disease

We are worried my husband may be in the early stage of PKD, as it runs in his family on his mom’s side. His mom has it.Now, he has no symptom but unexplained lower back pain for 6 months. Is lower back pain a sign of Polycystic Kidney Disease?

The Doctor Answered:

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic kidney disorder and progresses slowly. In the early stage, it usually doesn’t cause any symptom, so most PKD patients don’t find it until mid age. Communicating with other PKD patients, you must have found lower back pain is one of most common symptoms due to Polycystic Kidney Disease. Therefore, lower back pain can be a sign of Polycystic Kidney Disease especially for people who has relative with PKD.

From the information you have provided, your husband’s mom has this disease, so he has 50% of chance to get it. Now, he also has unexplained lower back pain for so long time, he had better make an accurate diagnosis as soon as possible. If the test report shows he indeed has PKD, a prompt treatment to avoid more severe symptoms and kidney damage is needed urgently.

Among those treatments, we would like to introduce some natural remedies: Ayurvedic and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. The former therapy, a combination of oral herbal medicines and massage, is used commonly in India that can help control patients’ symptoms effectively. The later therapy, based on TCM, is a external osmosis remedy. After tested again and again, it is proven to be effective and natural on shrinking cysts in PKD and easing patients’ symptoms.
