PKD and Distended Abdomen: What to Do

2018-07-06 10:03

Question: Hello. My husband has PKD. His abdomen is grossly distended, making waling difficult. His kidney function is still normal. After three specialist consultation, no medication was recommended, and we are told nothing can be done given his age. He is almost bed ridden. What is the next step?

PKD and Distended Abdomen: What to DoAnswer: PKD is a genetic kidney disease, which is characterized by the growth of fluid-filled cysts. As life with PKD goes on and those kidneys grow, they start to take up more and more space in your belly. In fact, the average ‘healthy’ kidney is the size of a fist and about a third of a pound, whilst a PKD kidney can reach the size of a football (and can weigh 20-30 pounds), which may make patients look like pregnant. The enlarged kidneys can also cause severe pain, making walking difficult. Conventional treatment is to use surgeries to drain the big cysts so as relieve the discomforts. Because of age, surgery is not recommended, because it is invasive. But it does not mean that nothing can be done.

For your husband’s condition, we recommend him to try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is a conservative treatment, which can be done on bed. In fact, it is a great innovation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which can infiltrate the micronized herbs into polycystic kidneys directly.

This treatment can inhibit the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the growth of renal cysts. It can also speed up blood microcirculation around cyst wall and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that fluid can be taken away from inside and then be passed out with urine. After about one week’s treatment, you can observe urine. It becomes cloudy. After about half month’s treatment, his back pain will get relieved greatly. High blood pressure will become down and be stabilized. After about one month’s treatment, renal cysts will be smaller than before, and kidney size will shrink as well. With the improvement of his condition, he can live like a normal person.
