Polycystic Kidney Disease TreatmentPolycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an inherited kidney disorder. It causes fluid-filled cysts to form in the kidneys. PKD may impair kidney function and cause kidney failure. Treatment is based on your own condition, but normally include the following four aspects:

1. Medication

Medication is to manage symptoms, so it may include:

- Painkillers

- Antihypertensive drugs

- Antibiotics (to treat urinary tract infection)

- Diuretics (to help remove excess fluid)

- NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to reduce proteinuria

2. Surgery

Surgery is to drain fluid of large cysts and help relieve discomforts. The doctor will use a special needle drain the fluid and inject with processed alcohol to make the cyst scared.

Surgery may also be taken to decorticate the top of large cyst in order to lower the pressure caused by enlargement of renal cysts.

In rare cases, nephrectomy is needed to remove the necrotic renal tissue in case of further damage.

3. Dialysis and kidney transplant

Dialysis is taken when the kidney function has reduced to less than 15%. If dialysis does not work, patients have to take kidney transplant.

4. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Unlike the above listed treatments, this therapy is more natural because it is based on Traditional Chinese Medicines that come from the nature. Both medication and surgery can caused some side effects, and dialysis has a short-term effects. However, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease by improving kidney function by expanding blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, and degrading extracellular matrix.

The effective ingredients can inactivate the upper epithelial cells of the walls of renal cysts, thus inhibiting the secretion of cystic fluid.

To sum up, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy cannot only shrink kidney cyst but also can improve kidney function. Therefore, it is more effective than medication and surgery.

5. Diet and exercise

This is one aspect that you cannot ignore. Controlling what you take can help you slow down the progression of PKD to Kidney Failure. Moderate exercise can also play a role in treating PKD.
