PKD digestive disordersPKD is characterized by numerous renal cysts in the kidneys. With the progressive and continuous increase and enlargement of renal cysts, the kidneys will be greatly enlarged and in the later stage the stomach will be filled by the enlarged kidneys. When these renal cysts or the enlarged kidneys oppress the digestive organs, it can impede digestion.

Once a patient consulted us about digestive disorders caused by PKD. He said that he often experience abdominal distention, abdominal pains. And if he eats foods in the evening, he may experience burping, gurgling and insomnia. Actually many patients suffer from the above mentioned problems. When the oppression of digestive organs are relieved, these symptoms will be relieved. Therefore it is important to seek early and proper treatment before the damages are too advanced to be reversed.

Surgeries such as cyst puncture or laparoscopic decortication can be adopted to remove large renal cysts so as to relieve oppression to the digestive organs. When oppression to digestive organs is relieved, digestive disorders, sleep problem can all be solved. But often the cyst will be re-filled with fluid and the removal of large renal cyst can provide more chance for the smaller ones to gain more rapid growth and enlargement. This is because the root problem is not solved and more cyst fluid will be continued to produced.

After the surgery, patients can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which helps lower the relapse rate of renal cysts. Active ingredients in Chinese medicines can act on the epithelial cells on the cyst wall, block further secretion of cyst fluid so as to control the cyst growth from the root. After a period of application, other renal cysts can be greatly shrunk, therefore other symptoms such as back pain, abdominal pain, urinary tract infections can all be eased. What is more, it is an external application of natural herbal medicines, therefore it causes no harms or side effects to the patients.
