What Is the Prognosis of ADPKD PatientADPKD (Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease) is a more common type of Polycystic Kidney Disease. It is a genetic disorder that usually attack adults. What is the prognosis of ADPKD patient?

Prognosis of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

In general, ADPKD patients see no symptoms before 20 years old. When they are over 30 to 40 years, they start to have some symptoms such as back pain, high blood pressure and blood in urine. Then, in the following years, kidney cyst has a rapid growth and may rupture due to some forces. About half of ADPKD patients develop Kidney Failure by the age of 60.

Treatment for Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

This kidney disease is characterized by numerable cysts on kidneys. These fluid-filled sacs grow very big, pressing nearby tissues and causing further kidney damage. Treatment for ADPKD should not only control symptoms but also improve kidney function. In that case, I recommend you to do as follows.

-Control symptoms and complications by diet or medicine

ADPKD patients usually die of heart disease (sometimes valvular), disseminated infection, or ruptured cerebral aneurysm. When symptoms of these problems occur, you should consult your doctor and take timely medication.

-Shrink kidney cyst and improve kidney function

Traditional Chinese herbs are very safe for patients and can help them achieve this goal. The effective ingredients can inhibit the renal tubular epithelial cells from secreting fluid any more, so kidney cyst growth stops. Meanwhile, these herbal medicines can improve blood circulation so fluid can be reabsorbed and discharged effectively as urine.
