Treatment for PKD

It should not only aim at controlling symptoms, such as high blood pressure, hematuria, back pain, proteinuria, anemia, etc, but also shrinking kidney cysts and stopping their growth. In our hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a commonly used treatment for PKD. This treatment can inhibit the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells so as to stop the cysts from enlarging. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will become small.

After about one week’s treatment, back pain will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, high blood pressure will be reduced. And after about one month’s treatment, renal cysts will shrink, and renal condition will get improved greatly. And then your life quality will be promoted.
