2013-04-12 14:44

I has suffered from Polycystic Kidney Disease for many years. Recently, my latest tests show my kidney disease has developed stage 4. I know if my kidney function continues to decline, I have to start dialysis or do kidney transplant in the near future. Is there an effective treatment for stage 4 kidney disease and PKD? Is it possible for me to stay in stage 4 or reverse to stage 3 kidney disease?

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a chronically progressive condition in which patients’ kidney function loses gradually because of the growth of kidney cysts. The medical term for reduced kidney function is chronic kidney disease that means the kidney is damaged. In stage 4 kidney disease, patients’ kidney function approximately ranges from 15% to 30%. If kidney cysts still continue to grow, more kidney tissues will be damaged and patients’ condition may develop stage 5 kidney disease where these patients are recommended to start dialysis immediately or in the near future.

How it is important to prevent stage 4 kidney disease and PKD from worsening into stage 5! As for chronic kidney disease caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease, the key to stop its progression is preventing the growth of kidney cysts and protecting the kidney function. To achieve these two goals, medicines which can prompt the generation of new tissues and shrink fluid-filled cysts are needed.

Natural herbal medicines, compared with western medicines, have a benefit of treating chronic disease. For example, rheum officinale is able to improve patients’ kidney function if used correctly. Some other medicines such as semen plantaginis and lalang grass rhizome can help increase the permeability of sac walls and prompting the reabsorption of sac fluid. Many other herbal medicines and therapies like medicated bath and acupuncture should also be added to this effective treatment for stage 4 kidney disease and PKD according to patients’ condition.

Once patients’ kidney function is protected well or increased and their kidney cysts are shrunk, it is possible for them to stay in stage 4 kidney disease for a long time or even to reverse to stage 3 where their life quality will be improved largely.
