Would Polycystic Kidney Disease Show in Blood TestsPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is an inherited kidney disease. If there is a family member with such a disease, you had better do some tests to check whether you are with it or not. Would PKD show in blood tests? Read on to learn more information.

Currently, there are three main tests that are used to screen for ADPKD: ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Ultrasound is the most reliable, inexpensive and non-invasive way to diagnose PKD. And A CT scan and MRI may detect smaller cysts that can not be found by an ultrasound. MRI is used to measure and monitor volume and growth of kidneys and cysts.

However,CT scans involve radiation or may also require iodinated contrast dye which can be toxic to the kidneys. In some cases, genetic testing might also be done. This involves a blood test that checks for abnormal genes that cause the disease.

If you are diagnosed with PKD, do not worry too much. There is treatment to help you stop the growth of cysts and shrink them.

It is an external application of herbal medicines, which can infiltrate the active ingredients of medicine into polycystic kidneys directly. It can restrain the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the cysts from growing. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that cyst fluid can be draw out, and then cysts will shrink gradually. After a short period of treatment, back pain, high blood pressure and so on will get relieved. After a long period of treatment, you can go for checkups again. Your kidney cysts will become small, and kidney condition will get well.
