PKD(polycystic kidney disease) is a genetic kidney problem and it is progressing. Many PKD patients are treated by dialysis when the kidneys are severely damaged. Can PKD develop into kidney failure without dialysis?

How does PKD develop into kidney failure?

The cysts on the kidneys are continually growing both in number and size. Some of the small cysts are not harmful and they cause no symptoms. At the early stage, PKD patients can live a normal life. But with the development of the cysts, the bigger cysts will cause pressure to the surrounding kidney tissues and cause inflammation. When more and more kidney tissues are damaged, the inflammation will enlarge. With the gradual loss of kidney function, kidney failure may attack.

Dialysis for PKD.

If the kidneys are severely damaged by the cysts and kidneys are not able to discharge the toxins in blood, dialysis is used. Dialysis can help kidneys remove the extra toxins and fluids in blood and relieve some of the symptoms. Adequate dialysis can help slow down the progression of the disease, but long-term dialysis will cause many side-effects. Even with dialysis, PKD can develop into kidney failure. Then how to prevent PKD developing into kidney failure?

How to prevent PKD developing into kidney failure?

The most effective method to prevent kidney failure is to prevent the cysts from growing and shrink the cysts. Here I suggest Chinese medicine which aims at achieve those effects.

The Hot Compress therapy is one of the effective treatment in the Chinese medicine and it is an innovative treatment. It is applied externally. The herbs will be permeated into kidney lesions by an osmosis device. The herbs can prevent the secretion of the fluids and increase the permeability of the cystic walls. So the cysts can be shrunk when the fluids flow out. This therapy is personalized, if you want a better improvement, you can send your test report to, the kidney doctor will give you a reply based on your condition.

Though PKD cannot be treatmentd, it is important to take proper treatment to prevent kidney failure. For further information, you can consult the online doctor!
