How to Treat Protein in Urine and Kidney Pain for PKDBoth protein in urine and kidney pain are common symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Once they occur simultaneously, finding out effective treatment to treat protein in urine and kidney pain is very important to prevent further kidney damage.

Making clear the root cause should be the first step of whole treatment.

In most cases, the formation of proteinuria has a close link with low kidney function. Generally speaking, every part of polycystic kidneys is filled with kidney cyst. When some cysts grow bigger than 3cm, they will replace normal kidney tissues. Once glomeruli or renal tubules are damaged, protein easily leaks from the kidney so as to form proteinuria.

As for kidney pain, it may be due to different causes: kidney cyst infections, compression from large kidney cysts, kidney cyst rupture and kidney stone.

How to treat protein in urine and kidney pain for PKD?

To ease PKD patients’ symptoms, several methods can be used.

- Take medications: Painkillers and steroids are commonly used to relieve patient’s back pain and protein in urine respectively, but the effect is so different from case to case. Some people can get relief from these medicines, while some others complain that the medicines don’t work.

- Surgery: A physician can drain large kidney cysts by inserting a needle directly into them. This process removes sac fluid and replaces it with alcohol. As a result, large kidney cyst can eliminated from the body and then kidney pain is remitted.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: As an osmosis therapy, this relatively new treatment is proven to be effective on prompting the reabsorption of sac fluid and increasing the damaged kidney cells’ self-curative ability. With fewer and fewer fillings, all of kidney cysts can be shrunk gradually. What’s more, when the damaged kidney cells can recover to work, patients’ kidney function will be improved largely thus easing patients’ proteinuria and kidney pain.
