Is It Normal to Urinate Blood With PKDIs it normal to urinate blood with PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease)? Well, how to say? Actually, many people urinate with PKD due to the enlarged, infected or ruptured cysts. This condition is not so serious as what you thought. As long as you can control the size of the cyst, you can relieve or prevent blood in urine from occurring. Firstly, let’ get a general understanding of hematuria.

Overview of hematuria

Polycystic Kideny Disease is a genetic disorder, which is characterized by multiple cysts in the kidneys. This kidney disease will cause many symptoms when the cyst grows to a certain size. Some of the patients will urinate blood and the severity is different from individual to individual. The hematuria occurs occasionally and is always induced by outside factors such as cold, tiredness, strenuous activities and urinary tract infection. A few of the PKD patients have gross hematuria ( blood can be seen with eyes), while most of them are diagnosed with microscopic hematuria ( blood only can be seen under microscopic).

Causes of urinating blood in PKD

Hematuria occurs because the renal cysts with various sizes have occupied the space of renal tissues. Therefore, the nearby tissues are oppressed by theses cysts, and then, they become damaged, resulting in blood in uirine. Besides, blood vessels in the walls of renal cysts may also burst due to strong tension caused by the compression. Then, the blood will flow into ureter, excreted with urine. Burst of tiny blood vessels is the common factor that causes hematuria. Sometimes, patients may also feel pain in the kidney area, because the blood clots will block the ureter. One more thing you should note that, hematuria is often accompanied by high blood pressure, urinary tract infection and renal defiency. If those complications occur, you should consult your doctor about timely and proper treatment to make them under control.

To sum up, urination blood is common in patients with PKD. Yet, as long as you can prevent yourself from infection, control complications and protect renal function, you can reduce the frequency or stop it. You can consult our experts online or leave a message below.
