How to Treat GFR 27 and Blood in Urine for PKD PatientsPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is one chronically progressive kidney disorder. With the expansion of PKD renal cysts, the enlarged kidney cysts can damage to kidney functioning tissues. As kidney filters are damaged, GFR levels reduce and blood appears in the urine gradually. If you happens to have GFR 27 and blood in urine, you have to take some treatments to control them.

What does GFR 27 and blood in urine mean for PKD patients?

According to glomerular filtration rate (GFR), chronic kidney disease including PKD is divided into five stages, while GFR 27 means patients’ kidney disease has progressed into stage 4. If left alone, their illness condition is more likely to aggravate into end stage or kidney failure.

As for blood urine, three conditions can lead to it: kidney cyst rupture, urinary tract infections or kidney stone. If left alone, blood in urine is more likely to worsen infections or even cause sepsis easily. For this reason, patients have to take managements immediately.

Treatments to deal with blood in urine for PKD patients

Firstly, when patients have blood in urine, they are recommended to have more rest in bed and drink correct amount of water. As introduced by kidney doctors, water is the best urinary tract cleaner. If blood in urine is due to urinary tract infections or kidney stone, drinking water or cranberry juice is able to help control these two problems.

Secondly, some medical treatments that can help shrink kidney cysts and protect kidney functioning tissues are needed. Only if kidney cysts stop growing and kidney functioning tissues are kept healthy, this series of problems can be controlled from the root. Aspiration, laparoscope, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Hot Compress Therapy, etc, are all helpful to treat PKD renal cysts. However, different treatments have their own advantages and disadvantages, so you need to determine which is suitable for you with online doctor’s guidance.
