How to Treat Back Pain in ADPKD

2013-04-12 16:28

How to Treat Back Pain in ADPKDADPKD, a common type of PKD, refers to Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease. In the early stage, ADPKD usually won’t cause any symptoms, but as cysts in kidney grow, many people with ADPKD say they are suffering from back pain. Is there a method to treat back pain in ADPKD?

Individuals with ADPKD experiencing slight or severe back pain may be due to three factors: urinary tract infections, kidney stone and large kidney cysts. Different causes need different treatments. Therefore, consulting the doctor to determine the root cause is quite necessary before accepting any treatment.

If the cause is urinary tract infection, antibiotics are used commonly to control patients’ infections and avoid further kidney damage. Aside from medicines, staying in bed is also necessary.

If patients’ back pain is caused by kidney stones, there are mainly two methods at present: TCM and surgery. TCM aims to use medicines to dissolve the kidney stones so that these kidney stones can be discharged from the body via urine, while surgery is used to remove the kidney stone directly. Both of these treatments have their own advantages. If you are diagnosed with kidney stone and suffer from severe back pain, you can choose one of them based on your condition.

Among these causes, the last one, large kidney cysts, is the leading cause of back pain in ADPKD. As we know, ADPKD is characterized with numerous cysts in the kidney. If uncontrolled effectively, these kidney cysts will become larger and larger so as to press their surrounding kidney tissues and cause back pain, also called kidney pain by some people. In this situation, shrinking kidney cysts is the best choice to treat back pain in ADPKD. Here, I would like to suggest Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which has helped many patients with PKD. More information about this therapy can be found in the link “ Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for Polycystic Kidney Disease”.

I know some people try to use some painkillers to relief their pain but most of these medicines are not suitable for them, because painkillers are more likely to worsen patients’ condition and cause more loss of kidney function. Therefore, people with ADPKD are suggested to take treatment according to their specific condition rather than taking medicines blindly.
