Will PKD Affect Heart Functions

2013-05-16 10:38

PKD is actually a systemic disease that will not only affect the kidneys but will in the latter stage involve nearly every part of the body including even the brain and heart.

PKD can cause damages to the heart functions especially when renal failure developes. High blood pressure is very common among PKD patients and it will become even worse with continuous increase and enlargement of renal cysts and gradual loss of kidney functions. High blood pressure will increase burdens to the heart. PKD can cause anemia and high toxins in the blood which will affect normal blood supply to the heart or even lead to heart failure. Besides, electrolyte imbalances such as high blood potassium can also cause damaged to the heart. For PKD patients, they can develop one complication called abnormal heart valve which can also be one possible cause of heart damages, though it is not very common in clinic.

Besides, many other cardiovascular diseases will occur with the deterioration of illness conditions.

Heart problems will in turn affect kidney functions. Decline of heart functions will definitely increase burdens to the kidneys. It can cause low blood flow to the kidneys and cause loss of more kidney functions.

For PKD and other kidney disease patients, the number one cause of death is often not renal failure but cardiovascular complications, therefore early and effective treatments should be sought to protect both kidney functions and heart functions so as to reduce fatality and improve the patient’s life expectancy.

Based on what is the exact cause of heart damages, proper treatment and measures should be sought to relieve renal anemia, remove excess toxins and wastes from the blood, well control of high blood pressure and high blood lipid.
