Patient: I have inherited PKD disease from my mother. It was diagnosed about 10 years ago. Both of my kidneys are filled with numerous cysts. I have high blood pressure and uric acid problem. I am now taking medicines to control high blood pressure and high uric acid. Any advices?

Expert: It has been long time that you have PKD and high uric acid means your kidney functions are damaged. 2/3 of uric acid in the blood is discharged through the kidneys, therefore renal dysfunction often cause accumulation of uric acid in the blood. Often, patients will have high creatinine, high BUN besides elevated uric acid. PKD is characterized by clusters of renal cysts in the kidneys. Often both kidneys are full of numerous cysts of various sizes. Normal renal tissues will be replaced by the cysts and normal renal functions will be gradually lost with the continuous growth and enlargement of these cysts.

High blood pressure is one common symptom that will occur even in the early stage of PKD. It is a major risk factor for PKD patients because it can speed up the decline rate of kidney functions.

Long term taking of blood pressure medicines and drugs that decrease high blood uric acid can cause damages to the kidneys and liver, therefore they should not be used in the long run.

External application of Chinese medicines has been proved to be effective for PKD because it can shrink renal cysts, repair damaged renal tissues, recover renal structures and renal functions.

When renal cysts are shrunk to smaller size, the high pressure, high filtration and high perfusion states in the kidney will be relieved and blood pressure will drop naturally.

Chinese medicines can provide essential nutritions to renal tissues so as to repair damaged renal tissues, recover renal structure and renal functions. When renal excretory function is improved and filtration system in the kidneys is repaired, excess uric acid, creatinine, urea and other wasteful substances will be removed through urine.
