Nail abnormality that PKD patients present

Both fingernails and toenails can be affected by kidney disease. Nail changes patients may experience include abnormal:





When kidney cysts are very large and compress nearby tissues, including kidney itself, they may cause kidney function reduction. Nitrogen, a kind of waste product of protein metabolism, starts to builds up in people with Polycystic Kidney Disease. It can lead to damaged fingernails and toenails. Talk with your doctor if you have abnormal change like:

-Yellow or opaque coloring

-Brittle nails

-Pitted nails (can easily break off or fall off)

-Linear depressions across the fingernail (called Beau's lines)

-Ridge-shaped nails

-Raised ridges, thin and concave shaped (called koilonychia)

-White streaks, spots on the nails (called leukonychia)

How to manage nail abnormality in PKD patients?

To deal with this problem from the root, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that can improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherpay is a good choice. It can shrink kidney cysts without puncture and surgery. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can restrain renal tubular epithelial cells from secreting fluid any more, thus stopping cyst growth. They can also increase blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to work normally. Therefore, blood wastes can be excreted by kidneys naturally and effective. Then, all symptoms that Polycystic Kidney Disease patients experience can be completely relieved.
