2013-04-10 15:41

It will be great if there is a treatment for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), but disappointedly, there is no such a treatment that can treatment PKD so far according to current medical technology. But fortunately, PKD in early stage can be stopped from developing to kidney failure.

Why can not PKD be treatmentd?

Different from other kinds of kidney problem like IgA Nephropathy, Nephrotic Syndrome, Hypertensive Nephropathy and Diabetic Nephropathy which are not inherited, PKD is a genetic kidney disorder that can cause formation of lots of cysts in kidney. These cysts enlarge over time and may rupture. What is worsen, they will oppress surrounding kidney tissues and make them unable in getting enough nutrition and oxygen. If this condition last for a long time, they will become necrotic and lose working ability. When more and more kidney tissues are affected by cysts, kidney function decreases and finally kidney failure can be caused.

Similar with our other cells, kidney intrinsic cells also have self-repairing ability; however, when the damage is out of their control, they die. For these dead kidney intrinsic cells, we can not repair them, so PKD can not be treatmentd completely. Besides, PKD is a kidney disorder involves gene mutation. According to present medical technology, there is no such a method that can help patients remove PKD gene, which also decides the fat that PKD can not be treatmentd.

PKD can be stopped from progressing to kidney failure

Without timely and effective treatment, PKD will deteriorate to kidney failure which is an life-threatening illness condition, so an effective prevention of kidney failure means a lot for PKD patients.

PKD progresses because of enlarged kidney cysts, so as long as we shrink kidney cyst and prevent them from damaging kidney tissues, further kidney damages will be avoided and PKD will stop progressing. At present, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the most effective way to shrink kidney cyst. It has function to extend blood vessels, improve blood circulation, and increase permeability of cystic wall. Under the effects of these function, pressure outside the cyst can be lowered effectively and when it is lower than that inside the cyst, cystic fluids will ooze out and kidney cyst gets smaller.

Lastly, although there is no treatment for PKD so far, patients can live as long as others with right treatment method. Therefore, finding an effective treatment to stop PKD progression, instead of a nonexistent treatment is more important for PKD patients.
