Treatment for people with PKD 2

There is no treatment for people with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease, since it is a genetic issue. However, someone can live a normal life with any others by taking some treatments.

Treatments usually include:

● Medicines

Medicines are sometimes very helpful to relieve some symptoms fast. Painkillers for back pain, flank pain, or abdominal pain, hypertensive drugs, diuretic for swelling, antibiotics for infections, are all medicines that can be included.

● Surgery

Surgery for this kidney disease is also helpful, but you should be concerned about the side effects. After removing big cysts by surgery, the other small cysts will have a rapid growth due to reduced pressure surrounding them. That’s why patients are easy to see the recurrence of kidney cyst within 6 months to 1 year.
