Multiple Bilateral Renal Cysts: Symptoms and Treatment

2013-05-03 10:25

Multiple bilateral renal cysts refer to numerous fluid-filled sacs developing in both kidneys. This type of kidney cyst has a much higher incidence to develop renal failure than one or two isolated cysts. Therefore, knowing multiple bilateral renal cysts symptoms and treatment is very necessary.

Most cases of multiple bilateral renal cysts are adult Polycystic Kidney Disease, and 90% of ADPKD is inherited. Normal kidneys can occasionally have up to 5 cysts in each kidney, so multiple renal cysts are an abnormal finding and they are more likely to cause the following symptoms as they grow.


● High blood pressure

● Infections especially urinary tract infections

● Back or flank pain


● Kidney stone

When the enlarged kidney cysts oppress their surrounding tissues and replace normal kidney function, some more severe symptoms such as high creatinine level, proteinuria, blood urine, etc, all occurs easily. Once you are diagnosed with multiple bilateral renal cysts and have some of the above symptoms, you should take treatment timely, otherwise, your condition may develop renal failure with more and more loss of kidney function.


Since this disease is due to many cysts growing in the kidneys, the best treatment is to remove all of them in one time. However, some cysts have a fairly close link with others and kidney tubules, so it is very dangerous to remove them. In view of this, there are mainly two better treatments: surgery to remove big cysts but do nothing to the small ones, and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to shrink all kidney cysts gradually with no danger but relatively longer time.

Different patients have their own condition, so each person with multiple bilateral renal cysts needs to be advised individually for correct treatment. Don’t take any treatment blindly.
