Cysts on Kidneys Cause Urine Odor

2014-10-16 01:43

Cysts on Kidneys Cause Urine OdorKidney cyst is a natural lesion that is a fluid-filled sac. It can be found in one or bilateral kidneys. In most cases, the cyst is benign and cause no symptoms. However, when the cyst get infected or cause kidney damage, it will lead to some problems. Can cysts on kidney cause urine odor?

The answer is yes. The common causes are Urinary Tract Infection (UTIs) and kidney dysfunction.

● Urinary Tract Infection

This is a very common complication in patients with kidney cyst. Enlarged kidney cyst makes the urine flow obstructed so that many bacteria generate in the urinary tract, leading to infections. This result can make your urination smell like ammonia.

● Kidney Dysfunction

 When the large cysts compress the nearby tissues, the kidneys cannot work normally due to lack of blood and oxygen supply. As time goes by, the renal tissues are damaged and start fibrosis. Wastes and toxins thus cannot be discharged by the glomeruli effectively. Excessive nitrogen builds up in the body and breaks down into ammonia. That’s why you have urine odor.

● Other causes

Diet, side effects of some medicines, or dehydration are also the possible causes of urine odor. Check what you have take, and consult your doctors to give you some proper treatment.

How to get rid of urine odor with kidney cyst?

As long as you can shrink or remove the kidney cysts, all the symptoms will disappear.

Traditionally, the doctor only prescribe some medicines to control symptoms or suggest surgery. Even though they can relieve your discomforts, they have limited and temporary effects. In some cases, they do more harm than benefits.

The best way to shrink kidney cyst, I think, is to take Traditional Chinese Medicine, because they are natural and can treat kidney disease from the root.
