How to treat simple kidney cyst?

● Watching and waiting. In general, a simple kidney cyst cause no symptoms and needs no treatment. But a regular test is very necessary for watching the kidney cyst growth. When a simple kidney cyst is larger than 3 cm, it is likely to cause some symptoms such as back pain and blood in urine. When it is bigger than 5cm, it may press nearby tissues, including the kidney itself, causing impaired kidney function.

● Diet restriction. Spicy foods and alcohol will stimulate the simple kidney cyst to grow, so they are not suggested to be added in the diet.

● Traditional Chinese herbs. This is the key to shrink kidney cyst from the root. As the above analysis, you know the direct cause of kidney cyst. Therefore, we choose traditional Chinese herbs to inactivate the renal tubular epithelial cells so that they won’t secrete fluid any more. Moreover, the effective ingredients of Chinese herbs can improve blood circulation, so the cyst fluid can be reabsorbed into blood vessels. With increased blood circulation and permeability of cyst walls, these fluid can be discharge as urine naturally and effectively.
