Polycystic Kidney Disease is a chronically progressive kidney disorder and characterized by numerous of fluid-filled cysts growing in the kidney. With age, these cysts can get more and more big and in this process some symptoms such as back pain, hematuria, urinary tract infections, etc, may occur. Knowing the significant stage of PKD is able to help patients have a better understand of their condition.

According to different symptoms, PKD can be divided into the following five stages:

1. Emergency stage

Generally, patients with PKD won’t have any symptoms before 20 years old, because their kidney cysts are very small and few. We can this silent period emergency stage.

2. Growth stage

With age, patients’ renal cysts will grow fast especially by age 30-40. In growth stage, high blood pressure occurs easily. If high blood pressure can’t be controlled effectively or the speed of kidney cyst growth can’t be slowed down, it can cause severe kidney damage. In this stage, we recommend a natural treatment, called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, can help shrink kidney cysts obviously.

3. Swelling stage

If unblocked effectively in growth stage, kidney cysts may become larger than 4cm and patients’ condition will progress to swelling stage. In this stage, many other symptoms such as back pain, proteinuria, hematuria and high blood pressure occurs without any expectation. Here, controlling these symptoms is very important for the whole treatment.

4. Burst stage

If some of them grows too big, one or more kidney cysts are more likely to rupture and then sac fluid easily spreads to organ organs to cause some infections such as urinary tract infection or acute renal failure.

5. Uremia stage

In uremia stage, it means nearly all of kidney function has lost. In the past, patients have to rely on dialysis or kidney transplant to maintain their fundamental life. If they want to avoid dialysis or further dialysis, the best treatment is to improve their kidney function. Immunotherapy may help them achieve this goal.
