Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Kill You
Your doctor has told you or your lover is diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease? If so, you must concern the severity of your condition. Can Polycystic Kidney Disease kill you?
How common is PKD?
Polycystic Kidney Disease is an inherited kidney disorder that affects more than 12.5 millions of people worldwide regardless of sex, age, race or ethnic origin. The children whose patients have PKD have a 50% chance of getting this disease. Therefore, many people throughout the world are tormented by PKD.
Can Polycystic Kidney Disease kill you?
Some people think a diagnosis of PKD means death sentence for them. In fact, this thought is wrong. Polycystic Kidney Disease commonly progresses slowly, so most patients can live without any symptoms for decades. However, with age, more and more kidney cysts develop in the kidney and some f them become quite big to damage their surrounding kidney tissues. It is reported that 50% of patients develop into kidney failure, which is the main cause of PKD patients’ death, by age 60. Therefore, we can know PKD indeed can cause death, even though this situation isn’t so common.
Is there a therapy to reverse this situation?
The fortunate answer is yes. Although no specific therapy can cure PKD completely at present, it is possible to prevent or at least slow down the progression of PKD developing kidney failure. I believe most of us have heard Micro-Chinese Medicine 0smotherapy, which is favored by more and more PKD patients because of its great effect.
This osmosis therapy is a combination of western medicine and herbal medicine. Western medicines are used to ease patients’ symptoms such as high blood pressure and proteinuria. Herbal medicines are used to shrink patients’ kidney cysts and protect their kidney function. Of course, during this treatment, food therapy also plays an important role. Once patients’ condition is controlled very well, they can avoid kidney failure successfully and then live as long as the general population.
