How Can the Progression of PKD Be StoppedPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder and one common factor leading to Kidney Failure. How can the progression of PKD be stopped?

To stop or at least slow down the progression of Polycystic Kidney Disease, patients need to do from several aspects including diet, surgery, medicines or new therapies. The following is a general guidance for PKD patients. Any questions, you can email to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours.

Diet changes

-Reduce sodium in diet to prevent high blood pressure and swelling due to fluid-retention. Salty foods such as processed meat and canned soups should be avoided.

-Watch out protein intake since large amount of protein produces more waste burdening on kidneys. Yet, high-quality protein foods such as egg white, fish and lean meat can be included.

-Lower potassium and phosphorous intake if the levels are higher than normal ranges.

-Take enough vitamins such as vitamin C and vitamin B.


Polycystic Kidney Disease is characterized by numerable cysts on kidneys. These fluid-filled sacs may take over and destroy kidney tissues, resulting in various symptoms. Back pain, high blood pressure, hematuria, proteinuria, frequent and urgent urine at night, swelling or fatigue, etc are commonly seen in Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. In that case, medicines are necessary to control severe problems to protect the kidneys. Your doctor should monitor the kidney cyst and give you proper medicines.

New therapies

To shrink kidney cyst and enhance kidney function is the key to stop the progression of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Therefore, I recommend traditional Chinese herbs. They can inhibit the cyst epithelial cells to secrete more fluid so kidney cyst stops grow. In addition, we choose herbal medicines that can improve blood circulation to increase the discharge of cyst fluid and improve ischemia and anoxia in kidneys.
