How Long Do You Live with Polycystic Kidney DiseaseHow long do you live with polycystic kidney disease? If you worry about your life expectancy to be affected by PKD, this article will be helpful to you.

Life expectancy of PKD patients

Generally patients with PKD will have high blood pressure in 30s, high serum creatinine in 40s, and kidney failure in 50s. After kidney failure, you can start dialysis to maintain life. Some data show that most patients on dialysis can live 10-20 years. That is to say, it is possible for you to live older than 70 years old. This is just an average age. If you receive treatment timely, it is possible for you to slow down the progression and avoid kidney failure so as to lead a normal life.

Treatment to help PKD patients to live a long life

-Symptomatic treatment. High blood pressure, infections and so on can increase your risk of death. Therefore, you should take treatment to bring these symptoms under control.

-Systemic treatment. When kidneys are damaged by the growing kidney cysts, a lot of waste products and extra fluid will build up in the blood, which will not only cause further kidney damage, but also restrain you from getting well. Systemic treatment, such as Toxin-Removing Therapy can eliminate wastes and fluid from the blood, improve blood circulation, increase blood flow into kidneys and provide essential elements so as to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application.

-Treatment to shrink kidney cysts and prevent them from growing. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used in such a case. This treatment can dilate blood vessels on cyst wall and speed up blood microcirculation so that fluid can be taken away from inside. It can also suppress the secretion of lining cells so as to reduce cyst fluid. Under these two functions, kidney cysts will shrink. And then renal function will get improved gradually.

With the above treatment, you can protect your renal function very well, and then you can live a normal and full life.
