Can PKD be treatmentd? I am afraid the answer is No! PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) is a genetic illness condition in which increasing kidney cysts enlarge over time. It is a kidney disorder related with mutations in gene, and can not be treatmentd so far. Even so, Polycystic Kidney Disease should keep an optimistic attitude because PKD can be stopped from progressing to kidney failure with proper treatment.

In PKD, there is no cysts at the very beginning. Under the coaction of external environment and gene problem, cysts begin to appear and they become larger and larger with the increase of cystic fluid. These enlarge cysts oppress surrounding kidney tissues and make them unable in obtaining enough nutritions and blood. Kidney damages are formed when these affected kidney tissues become necrotic.

With the deterioration of kidney function, various symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria, blood urine and back pain occur. Large cysts rupture easily if left control. As PKD can not be treatmentd, so most of the time, patients are simply prescribed with oral medicines to deal with symptoms. Tight control about PKD symptoms help to slow down the disease progression, but it can not stop PKD from developing to kidney failure.

To stop PKD progression, we must shrink kidney cysts, which not only helps to avoid further kidney damages, but also helps to improve kidney condition. In PKD, cysts enlarge because of increased cystic fluids, so as long as yellow fluid inside the cyst is reduced, kidney cyst gets shrunk. At present, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used to shrink cysts in PKD. In micro-Chinese medicines, selected herbs have function to extend blood vessels, restrain inflammation, prevent coagulation and degrade extracellular matrix. Function of extending blood vessels help to increase blood flow in kidney, which can helps to increase GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). What is more, effective ingredients in Chinese medicines can stimulate cystic wall and increase the permeability of it. under such a condition, cystic fluid ooze out easily. Micro-Chinese medicines take Chinese herbs as the major material, and they cause no side effects. Therefore, no matter for adults or children with PKD, it is a preferable medical therapy.

Lastly, although PKD can not be treatmentd so far, sufferers can live a high quality life if the treatment method is timely and effective. Therefore, please do not be lose hope to live casually and easily.
