Some patients can feel itching all the time and in some cases the skin itching may come and go. Itching is one symptom of polycystic kidney disease, but it is not the early sign of PKD. That is to say, patients will not feel itching in the early stage of PKD and the onset of skin itching means that illness conditions have been quite severe or at least kidney functions have been severely damaged.

Limit phosphorus through proper diets, take some drugs if necessary and in serious conditions adopt dialysis can help lower phosphorus concentration in the blood. Accumulation of other metabolic wastes and toxins in the blood can also cause or worsen skin itching, therefore dialysis and other blood purification technologies are needed when necessary.

Itching can also be caused by dialysis treatment because of allergies especially if itching occurs before dialysis, whether peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis. If so, report it to the doctor and do some proper adjustments.
