2013-04-06 11:28

Cyst infection is very common among PKD patients especially if the size of the cyst is larger than 3cm or if patients have frequent urinary tract infections or other infections. These infections will alter internal environment and cause the cysts to experience rapid growth and worsen renal damages. Infections in any part of the body can enter into the kidneys with blood circulation and affect the cysts.

In case of cyst infection, patients can have the symptoms of chill, fever, back pain, frequent urination, urinary urgency, burning sense in urination or even blood in urine, etc. If the infection is not well controlled, it can affect the kidneys and worsen renal functions.

If the cyst is infected, patients can have cyst puncture to drain the cyst fluids outsides and this operation can be repeated 2-3 days later. After the puncture, fever can be lowered, back pain and urinary abnormalities can be eased. The cyst can be controlled after 2-3 weeks.

Cyst puncture is to insert a fine needle into the cyst under the guidance of B ultrasound or CT scan to drain the cyst fluid outside. And then alcohol will be injected to harden the affected tissues to lower the relapse rate. Even though, the cyst will be refilled again after a period of time. Often the removal of large cyst will provide more chance for the smaller ones to gain rapid growth because there are many cysts in PKD.

If patients do not have cyst puncture, it takes 8 weeks or even longer to treat the infection with mere antibiotics treatment. Besides conventional prescribed antibiotics, many natural herbs have antibiotic properties such as cranberry, bearberry. They have good effects on preventing and treating urinary tract infection and kidney inflammations. What is more important, they are natural and causes no harms or side effects in the long run.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can shrink renal cysts so as to much lower the chance of cyst rupture and cyst infection from the root. Effective prevention is the best treatment for cyst infection for PKD patients.
