How to manage Polycystic Kidney Disease symptoms?

High blood pressure

Researches reveal that nearly 60% of patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease have high blood pressure by age 20 or 30. High blood pressure and kidney damage interact closely. If blood pressure can’t be controlled very well, it will worsen patients’ condition. To keep blood pressure in the normal level, a low-salt diet and correct hypotensive agents such as ACEI and ARB are needed.

Back or side pain

When these fluid-filled cysts grow too fast or some of them rupture, they will oppress or infect other organs and then back or side pain occurs easily. In view of this, we can know shrinking renal cysts and preventing these cysts from rupture is the key to remit patients’ back or side pain. Here, we recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which has been proven to have a remarkable benefit in reducing kidney cysts.

Blood urine or hematuria

The rupture of a renal cyst will cause sac fluid spreading into other tissues especially urinary tract. As a result, some blood will discharge from the body via urine. In addition, kidney stone is also a cause of blood urine or hematuria. Finding out the cause should be prior at the treatment.

Brain aneurysms

Brain aneurysm is a life-threatening risk for patients with PKD. The earlier they find it through MPI or MSCTA and accept correct treatment, the better their condition.

Kidney Failure

As these kidney cysts grow, the enlarged cysts will oppress their surrounding tissues and cause kidney damage. If untreated early, it will cause renal failure. In the clinical, nearly 50% of patients with PKD have renal failure by age 60. Reducing kidney cysts and protecting kidney function is the best way to prevent kidney failure.
