PKD patients have many fluid-filled renal cysts in their kidneys. With the continuous secretion of more cyst fluids, both the size and number of renal cysts will increase along with time. With the continuous growth and enlargement of renal cysts, the risk of cyst rupture will increase because large renal cysts will oppress renal tissues and cause ischemia and hypoxia in the kidneys.

Ruptured renal cyst can cause many sudden and serious symptoms for PKD patients, therefore it is necessary to know what are the symptoms of PKD rupture so as to have early prevention and effective treatment.

Blood in urine is very common among PKD patients and it often occurs after strenuous activities or physical traumas. Rupture of blood vessels on the cyst wall can cause blood in urine. Of cause there are other causes such as kidney stone, urinary tract infection, etc.

Sudden or sharp pains in the back, abdomen and sides. Back pain, abdominal pain and flank pain are very common among PKD because of the oppression of surrounding renal tissues, stretching of renal capsules and enlargement of the kidneys. Usually the pain is dull and persistent. However if the pain is suddenly sharpened and becomes unbearable, it often indicates cyst rupture, kidney stones or blood clots, etc.

Infections or even sepsis. Cyst rupture is a relatively severe illness condition for PKD patients and it can cause serious consequences if it is not well controlled. If patients have infections, they can have chill, fever, back pain, frequent urination, urinary urgency and urinary pains. In more serious conditions, it can even cause kidney inflammation, kidney scarring or even kidney failure. Therefore early and effective treatment should be sought to control the infections.

PKD patients often have palpable abdominal masses due to the enlarged renal cysts and kidneys, therefore it is very necessary that the patients should avoid bumps, squeezing or wearing light clothes to reduce the chance of cyst rupture.

Of cause the most effective prevention of cyst rupture is to shrink or at least slow down cyst growth with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It can help treat infections and inflammations, soothe pains for the patients. What is more important, it can help repair damaged renal tissues and protect renal functions.
