Treatment for PKD

● Medicines

Even though medicines may cause some side effects, we do not deny them completely. You can consult your doctor about right dosage. But you cannot depend on them because they simply relieve symptoms rather than shrinking kidney cyst.

● Surgery

If you do not have severe complication such as severe bleeding in the kidneys, kidney cysts with kidney tumor, or uncontrolled high blood pressure, I do not recommend you to take surgery. In this process, infection is easy to occur. More over, many patients will see the cyst recurrence within half to one year.

● Chinese herb

What I mean are not simple Chinese herbs but therapies created from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Medicated Bath, Acupuncture, Gua Sha, etc. Each therapy has its own advantages and will be taken differently, according to different cases.
