If left untreated, it will develop renal failure where patients have to rely on dialysis or kidney transplant to live. How long can I live with Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Different patients with PKD have great individual difference in the life span. Generally, they have high blood pressure by age 20-30, and nearly 50% of patients have renal failure by age 60. Once their condition develops renal failure, they have to live with dialysis or kidney transplant. However, the average life expectancy of people on dialysis is approximately 5 years. The short life span urges them to find an effective treatment to prolong their life span.

Is there a treatment to help achieve this goal?

Fortunately, the answer is yes.

Kidney experts call this therapy Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

Through expanding blood vessels, nourishing the impaired kidney cells, blocking the source of sac fluid and prompting the reabsorption of cystic fluid, these cysts will shrink spontaneously without any side effects. This is why more and more patients want to rely on this advance to improve their condition and life quality.
