Can PKD Stop DevelopingNo one wants to live his or her life with diseases. For people who have been diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), they want to know whether PKD can stop developing. I have to say that there is no treatment for this disease up to now around the world. However, there still are some treatments to stop PKD from developing. The key is to control the size of the cysts and prevent them from enlarging, even make them shrink. Here are some treatments for PKD.

Medicines

Medicines are usually used to treat some symptoms such as:

- Back pain, flank pain, side pain, abdominal pain

- Hematuria

- High blood pressure

- Urinary tract infection

- Swelling

Surgery

Surgery will be taken if the cyst grows too large and compress the tissues. Cyst decortication relieves the discomfort through draining the fluids in the sacs. However, surgery has side effects, because when the large cysts are removed, the nearby small cysts will grow with a fast speed. Thereby patients will experience a relapse of PKD. Therefore, if the cysts are nor ruptures and cause no infection, surgery is not a good choice.

Dialysis or kidney transplant

Dialysis or kidney transplant is for those who have progressed into kidney failure. About 40-50% of the patients will have kidney failure after age sixty. But you know what dialysis will bring for them. What’s more, kidney transplant may make them to wait for a long time. Even though the patient gets a right kidney to be transplanted, they may have rejection after this transplant.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This is an innovative therapy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It has been widely used in China, and its curative effects for PKD have been proved significant by many clinical practices. The ingredients in Chinese medicines are natural and can not only shrink the cysts but also can improve the kidney function so as to prevent relapse.
