Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Cause AnemiaDo you often feel weak or tired? If you have been with PKD for a long period of time, it is likely for you to have such a feeling. It may means you have anemia. Can polycystic kidney disease (PKD) cause anemia? The answer is certain. Now go on reading to learn more information.

How does PKD cause anemia?

When your kidneys are damaged from cysts, the kidney tissues that create erythropoietin also become damaged. Erythropoietin stimulates red blood cells production. Anemia can come about from this lack of erythropoietin. When your kidneys are damaged, waste products can not be filtered out of body adequately. Those accumulated wastes can shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. A reduced number of red blood cells can also cause anemia.

It is critical for you to improve anemia, because it can cause renal ischemia and anoxia so as to make your renal condition worse.

Treatment for PKD patients with anemia

Conventional treatment is to use EPO or iron supplements to help improve anemia. But if you can not shrink the cysts and improve renal function, it is difficult for you to get well. Here we recommend you to try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Toxin-Removing Therapy.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help stop the growth of renal cysts by restraining the activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells. It can also shrink the cysts by increasing the permeability of cyst wall and the pressure difference inside and outside. When renal cysts won’t enlarge and begin to shrink, your renal function will gradually restore, and then the production of EPO will be promoted, and then anemia can be improved.

-Toxin-Removing Therapy is also known as Detoxification Therapy. When lots of waste products build up in body, they do not cause further kidney damage, but also reduce the effectiveness of drugs to restrain you from recovery. Therefore, you had better cleanse the blood and improve blood condition. Under same circumstances, the effect comes out more quickly and better when there is less accumulation of wastes.
