Patients with polycystic kidney disease will have multiple renal cysts in both their kidneys due to continuous secretion of cyst fluid by the epithelial cells on the cyst wall.

Both the number and size of renal cysts will increase along with time. These cysts will oppress and replace normal renal tissues, kidneys will be greatly enlarged than the normal size. In the end stage, renal structures can be altered and renal functions will be impaired. If left untreated, it will in the end progress into renal failure.

Kidneys have the functions to produce urine, remove excess water, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, creatinine, uric acid, urea and other metabolic wastes from the blood. It can also help regulate blood pressure and reb blood cell production. When normal renal functional tissues are replaced by renal cysts, these functions will be affected and patients will develop a series of symptoms such as back pain, high blood pressure, cyst infection, blood in urine, etc.

In case of PKD, the larger the kidney is, the fewer kidney functions it will have. Greatly enlarged kidneys will cause palpable abdominal masses and cause many inconveniences to the patients. In daily life, patients need to pay more attention to avoid bend over, lifting heavy goods and any other abdominal bumps or injuries in case the large cysts get rupture and cause serious illness consequences.

The Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help shrink both renal cysts and the enlarged kidneys so as to relieve PKD symptoms, restore renal structures and improve kidney functions. It can soften the cyst wall and change the pressure difference inside and outside the cyst wall so that the fluids will flow out of the cysts and the cysts will be shrunk. It can also expand blood vessels and promote blood circulation so as to bring the cyst fluid outside the body. When the cysts are shrunk, the enlarged kidneys will become smaller and certain kidney functions can be recovered.
