 get rid of bad breath in Polycystic Kidney DiseaseRecently, a 21 years old young woman with Polycystic Kidney Disease told me she is experiencing bad breath that does not seem to go away. She wonder if it is related with her kidney problem and how to get rid of bad breath in Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic kidney disorder which can cause formation of lots of cysts in kidney and usually causes no bad breath. However, in some cases, because of high toxins in blood which are normally discharged by kidney, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients may experience bad breath.

To get rid of this symptom, a comprehensive treatment is necessary:

Firstly, Polycystic Kidney Disease needs to have a tight control about their blood pressure, proteinuria, and hematuria, and this will help to avoid further kidney damages to some extent.

Secondly, shrinking kidney cysts and stopping Polycystic Kidney Disease from progressing. With the deterioration of Polycystic Kidney Disease, symptom of bad breath may become more seriously. To avoid this consequence, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be adopted to shrink cysts in kidney.

Thirdly, limit protein intake. When protein metabolizes in our body, urea nitrogen will be produced. Excess urea nitrogen is normally discharged by our kidneys, so ingesting too much protein will increase kidney burden and thus worsen kidney condition. Therefore, it is of great importance for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients to limit protein intake.

Forth, avoid drinking alcohol. Alcohol may stimulate cysts and make them become larger. Enlarge kidney cysts oppresses surrounding kidney tissues and make them unable in working. This can cause decrease of kidney function and aggravate symptom of bad breath. In this light, if Polycystic Kidney Disease patients want to get rid of bad breath, kicking habit of drinking alcohol is necessary.

Fifth, pay attention to oral hygiene and brush your teeth correctly in the morning or before you go to bed.

Sixth, get kidney function improved and this is the most important part. Bad breath occurs because of high toxins in blood which should have been discharged by kidneys. However, because of decreased kidney condition, toxins build up in blood and thus cause bad breath. Therefore, to get rid of bad breath in Polycystic Kidney Disease, improving kidney condition is very essential.
