PKD & Kidney Cysts

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of disorders that result from the formation and progressive enlargement of cysts in the kidneys without dysplasia, usually leading to renal failure.

What to Expect with PKD Stage 4 and Creatinine 2.3“I have PKD stage 4. My creatinine level is 2.3. What result can I expect?” this question is about PKD prognosis. If you also want to know your prognosis, this article will give you a clear mind.

You are in PKD stage 4. If it keeps on worsening, the disease will progress into stage 5, also known as end stage renal disease (ESRD), in which dialysis or kidney transplant must be done to maintain your life. Generally speaking, by age 75, 50 to 75% of patients with PKD require these kidney replacement treatment. On average, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines by about 5 ml/min/year after the fourth decade of life. What is your GFR now? You can calculate the time you go into kidney failure.

If you do not expect dialysis or kidney transplant in the near future, you should protect your residual renal function from now on.

In stage 4, the kidneys have been seriously damaged by the growth of renal cysts, so the fundamental way is to stop the cysts from enlarging further. In our hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used into such a case. Different from traditional Chinese medicine, this treatment can infiltrate the micronized herbs into polycystic kidneys directly to take effect. It can increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside as well as speeding up blood microcirculation so that fluid can be taken away from inside, and then renal cysts will shrink. It can also suppress the abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and restrain lining cells from secreting cyst fluid, and then renal cysts will be stopped from enlarging. Because this treatment can massage your back, you will have an immediate relief from back pain after treatment. After about half month’s treatment, creatinine level will be reduced by at least 10%. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney cysts will shrink, and renal function will get improved.

What to expect with PKD stage 4 and creatinine 2.3? If you do not expect to do dialysis or kidney transplant in the near future, you should take treatment as early as possible to shrink kidney cysts and stop their growth so as to preserve your residual renal function.
