PKD & Kidney Cysts

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of disorders that result from the formation and progressive enlargement of cysts in the kidneys without dysplasia, usually leading to renal failure.

To Avoid Renal Failure, You Need to Take Three Steps

To Avoid Renal Failure, You Need to Take Three StepsRenal Failure means that more than 80% of the kidney function has been damaged, severe fibrosis and sclerosis of the kidney tissues appear, and the possibility of recovery is very small. Without good control, there is a risk of developing uremia.

Therefore, many patients with kidney disease very worry about the deterioration of the disease, and urgently want to cure the disease and restore the kidney function as soon as possible.

Kidney disease is not entirely incurable. In patients with stage 1 or 2 of chronic kidney disease (CKD), there is usually inflammation in the kidney, but the renal function is not substantially damaged. Therefore, as long as the inflammation is eliminated in time and the inflammation reaction is suppressed, it can basically be cured. However, in patients with renal insufficiency, including renal failure, a large number of renal cell necrosis and severe damage to glomeruli, renal tubules and other tissues are irreversible, so renal function can not be completely restored. It is unrealistic to reverse renal function quickly.

Can you just wait for kidney function to run out gradually?

Nevertheless, kidney patients should not be too disappointed. Renal function is not as fragile as we think, nor will it progress so fast. Most patients have found the condition before renal failure. As long as you take active treatment, you can maintain the stability of renal function.

Firstly, the pathological type and the cause of related symptoms were confirmed.

There are many kinds of CKD. Nephrotic Syndrome only includes dozens of pathological types of nephropathy such as common membranous nephropathy, minimal change nephropathy, mesangial proliferative nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and so on. These kidney diseases all have the symptoms of massive proteinuria, heavy edema and hypoproteinemia. If the pathology can't be clarified in time and the specific damaged part of the kidney, i.e. the focus can not be found, you can only alleviate the symptoms rather than treat the damaged part fundamentally. This increases the risk of recurrence and deterioration, and misses the optimal treatment time.

Secondly, step-by-step treatment is needed.

The occurrence of CKD is the result of long-term accumulation, not overnight, so the treatment of nephropathy can not be quick. Renal function recovery depends not on speed, but on long-term adherence to the correct treatment.

Some symptoms of nephropathy, including proteinuria, edema and hypertension, are chronic injuries, which require long-term medication to maintain stability. Especially for proteinuria, which is a key indicator, steroids and immunosuppressants are needed for long-term treatment. However, different patients have different physique and age, different tolerance to steroids, and different treatment duration and recovery. With steroids, it takes a year or even longer for proteinuria to maintain stability. Although the medication treatment time is long, but the gradual medication treatment will make the recovery of the disease more solid.

And some patients want to make proteinuria recover quickly through multi-drug and rapid treatment, which will not only cause excessive treatment, but also increase the risk of relapse, so as to accelerate the deterioration of renal function. Even some patients seek folk prescription and unintentionally contact with kidney-injuring drugs.

Finally, to improve living habits and quality of life

Kidney patients should not only take timely medication, timely review and other routine treatment, but also pay attention to daily life management, which is also part of the treatment. To improve some kidney-injuring habits and lighten the burden of kidney, such as drinking, smoking, staying up late, overeating, irritable temper, etc., keep good habits such as exercise, keep good mood, and communicate with doctors more, which can ensure the recovery of the illness. The key is to have patience and confidence to fight this "protracted war" and strive for a better life for yourself.
