When to Start Dialysis With Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is an inherited genetic disorder. Based on the the size of the cysts and severity of illness condition, it is divided into five stages. When it reaches to the end stage of PKD, that is, Kidney Failure, dialysis is needed. Well, there should be some indicators of dialysis, aren’ t there? Indeed.

The doctor will take several references to dialysis, including:

1. GFR (glomerular filtration rate)

This is the most effective indicator of your kidney function. In general, dialysis is required when the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) reduces to less than 15ml/min. It means your kidney function has lost at least 85% and your kidneys have failed to filter extra fluid and wastes.

2. Serum creatinine level

The normal range of serum creatinine level is 0.6-1.2 mg/dL for male and 0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female. When creatinine is more than 8.0mg/dL, the doctor will recommend you to take dialysis.

3. Complications

Some people who have kidney disease are accompanied by some other problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease. Some others may also have severe swelling, blood in urine, infections or breathing problems. Under such circumstances, they need dialysis immediately because those problems will aggravate their illness condition, even though the creatinine level is not so high.

Is dialysis effective for Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Dialysis, as a renal replacement therapy, it indeed can help the kidneys with filtering excessive wastes and toxins, but its effects are temporary. Once you stop dialysis, you will see creatinine level elevate again easily. What’s more, during this long and sometimes painful process, patients may have to suffer from some side effects of dialysis.

Therefore, I recommend those with end stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is used externally. Many clinic practices have proved it to very natural and effective for kidney disease patients. It cannot only eliminate the kidney cysts but also can improve the kidney function. So this the best choice for you.

One thing you should note is that Micro-Chinese Osmotherapy is only available in Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, which locate in the city neat Beijing, China. However, do not worry, we are glad to help you with any questions you may have.
