Frequent and Dilute Urine Caused by Kidney Cyst

2014-06-30 06:09

Frequent and Dilute Urine Caused by Kidney CystAs we all know, the basic function of kidneys is to produce urine. Therefore, if the kidneys are damaged, they will cause some urinary changes, such as frequent urine and dilute urine. Kidney cyst will be harmful when it grows to a large size or get infected.

Why does frequent and dilute urine occur in kidney cyst?

When kidney cyst cause damage to the kidneys, the renal medullary is shrunk, causing a low pressure inside it. Under such circumstance, excessive fluids cannot be absorbed by renal tubules so that more water leaks out. Therefore, frequent and dilute urine occurs.

In clinic, if the osmotic pressure urine is less than plasma osmotic pressure, dilute urine (hyposthenuria) occurs. For healthy people, the plasma osmotic pressure is 280~310mOsm/L, and the normal urinary osmotic pressure is 50~1200mOsm/L. When there is much more water in the body, hyposthenuria is likely to occur. Some people may have severer diabetes insipidus, discharging dilute urine up to 20L, accounting for 10% of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR).

How to deal with that?

According to my explanation above, you can see that the root cause is the damaged kidney function. If the kidney can function well, it can keep the fluid balance of the body. Then frequent and dilute urine can disappear gradually. For people with kidney cyst, the first thing is to shrink the cyst and prevent infections. Acupuncture is a good treatment. According to traditional Chinese medicine theories, there are many acupoints that are linked with the organs of the whole body. These acupoints are the pathways to carry energy flow and blood. If they are blocked, wastes and toxins will accumulate inside the kidneys, which will worsen the illness condition. Acupuncture is to make the energy flow smoothly pass through the body so that enough oxygen and blood will be supplied for the repairing of kidneys.

If the illness condition is more serious, the treatment may change. Any questions, you can leave a message below or contact us online doctors directly.
