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.

Does ADPKD Always End up with Kidney Failure

Question: I was told that half of all PKD patients will have kidney failure by 50 years of age with few having it at 74 years of age depending of the PKD1 or PKD2 gene. But does PKD always end up with kidney failure?

Does ADPKD Always End up with Kidney FailureAnswer: ADPKD can not be cured. From this point of view, it will end up with kidney failure eventually. But the time is different. For some patients, it may take only few years, while for some other patients, the time is so long that the disease has not developed to kidney failure when they are dead. Why there is such a great distinguish depends on how well you control the disease. Despite we can not cure the disease, we can slow down its progression as much as possible. What treatment are you taking now?

For PKD patients in early stage, as long as there are no symptoms, no treatment is needed. Is this right? Of course not. But in many districts, this is the most common practice. In early stage, the disease is not severe at all, so it is the best time for you to have a good control of the disease and prevent it from getting worse.

Treatment for ADPKD

Its treatment should not only focus on controlling symptoms, but also shrinking the cysts and stopping their growth. In our hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used into PKD treatment.

It is a great innovation of traditional Chinese medicine, which can infiltrate the micronized herbs into the polycystic kidneys. When the active ingredients reach the nidus, they can suppress the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and stop the secretion of lining cells so as to prevent kidney cysts from enlarging. They can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference so that cyst fluid can be drawn out, and then kidney cysts will shrink.

If you have back pain, after about one week’s treatment, it will disappear.

If you have high blood pressure, after about half month’s treatment, it will come down and be stabilized.

After about one month’s treatment, kidney cysts will shrink, and kidney condition will get improved.

Does ADPKD always end up with kidney failure? Yes, but you can slow down the progression with proper treatment. For more information on PKD treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
