Unilateral Polycystic Kidney: Cause and TreatmentPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is characterized by a cluster of renal cysts in one or two kidneys. Just like bilateral PKD, unilateral polycystic kidney disease is also inherited and usually occurs among young people. If yo know the cause and treatment, you can slow down or even prevent the progression of unilateral polycystic kidney disease.


Just like bilateral PKD, unilateral Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic disorder. Rarely, it is caused by infection, diet , or trauma.


1. Pain: It can occur in the back, flank, or abdomen. When the cyst grows to a large size, it will compress the other tissues, causing pain in kidney area.

2. High blood pressure. When the kidney is under the pressure, it is stimulated to secret more hormones that are related to raising blood pressure.

3. Blood or protein in the urine. This may occur when the kidneys cannot function well, thus leading to protein leakage. When the big cysts rupture or becomes hemorrhagic, they are likely to cause blood in the urine.


One thing you should know that unilateral Polycystic Kidney Disease is incurable. Traditionally, the treatment is negative because treatment is only taken when symptoms occur. Your doctor may prescribe you some medicines when you have pain or when you see an elevation of the blood pressure. Surgery may be also recommended if the cysts are over 3-5cm or rupture. However, these methods cannot help you solve the underlying problem because the kidney itself is still damaged, and keeps on losing its function.

Fortunately, a new effective treatment called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has been created in our hospital—Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, this therapy can treat Polycystic Kidney Disease from the root by promoting blood circulation and repair damaged kidneys. Since all the Chinese herbs used cone from the nature, they can act on the cysts with few side effects. Therefore, it is thought to be the most safe treatment for unilateral Polycystic Kidney Disease.

I also hope you can regain a normal life like other patients having received treatment of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy here. Any questions, please leave a message below or contact our doctor online. You won’t be charged.
