Is surgery the only treatment for PKD? Surgery is the most common medical method for big cysts in Polycystic Kidney Disease. However, as it is painful, risky and can not solve problem from the root, many PKD patients are reluctant to do surgery. Therefore, is surgery the only treatment for PKD becomes a hot topic among them.

In Polycystic Kidney Disease, many patients are suggested to do surgery to deal with big cysts in kidney because these large cysts rupture easily. What is worse, they oppress surrounding kidney tissues and cause kidney damages. PKD progresses just because more and more kidney tissues lose their working ability.

Surgery treats PKD by removing big cysts in kidney. However, clinic study found when big cysts are removed from kidney, small cysts will enlarge rapidly and surgery can not help patients solve problem fundamentally. Actually, surgery is the most commonly used method for managing big cysts in kidney, but it is not the only treatment for PKD.

For Polycystic Kidney Disease patients, aside from surgery, they can receive Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is an external usage of Chinese herbs. In this treatment, Chinese herbs are crushed into powder and then packed with special gauze. While receiving this treatment, medicine packages are put in patient’s kidney location. With the help of permeameter, effective ingredients in micro-Chinese medicines get into kidney through meridian.

Medicines in micro-Chinese medicine have function to extend blood vessels, restrain inflammation, fight against coagulation and degrade extracellular matrix. Besides, they also help to increase the permeability of cystic wall, which is very helpful for fluid inside the cyst to ooze out. For PKD patients who have taken Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for a shor term, they will experience the following changes:

1. Sweating

2. Protein and blood in urine decrease

3. Blood pressure decreases

4. Sleep quality and appetite get improved

5. Cotten-like material can be found in urine

The above are the short-term effects of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and if they insist on this treatment for a while, cysts in kidney will be shrunk effectively. As long as kidney cysts get smaller, no further kidney damages are caused and PKD stops progressing.

Surgery is not the only treatment for PKD, so if any patients want to avoid surgery, they can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
