PKD & Kidney Cysts

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of disorders that result from the formation and progressive enlargement of cysts in the kidneys without dysplasia, usually leading to renal failure.

Should PKD With Creatinine 2.7 Have Kidney Transplantation

2013-04-14 17:11

Patient: My daughter has PKD, her creatinine is now 2.7. She has not begun dialysis yet, but her doctor advised kidney transplantation. Is it too early to begin the surgery for her current conditions.

Expert: Kidney transplantation is one effective and ideal treatment option for polycystic kidney disease, but for your daughter’s current illness conditions, it is still too early. Her creatinine is 2.7. It is high but not high enough for requiring dialysis or kidney transplant.

Though kidney transplant is effective for PKD patients, it is usually operated for end stage PKD patients whose original kidneys have less than 10-15% kidney functions. This is because kidney transplant has certain survival rate and life expectancy. Even successful kidney transplant can not make sure she is free from potential renal damages. Organ rejections and various infections will become her new concerns after kidney transplant. What is more, after the surgery she has to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of her life. These drugs are costly and will cause many side effects to her.

We say so because there are more natural and suitable treatment for her current illness conditions. That is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It has been proved to be effective at treating PKD and kidney cysts. The curative effects will be better and quicker for early stage PKD patients like your daughter. It can help shrink renal cysts, repair renal damage and improve kidney functions so as to help lower high creatinine naturally.

Besides, your daughter needs a proper diet which can help reduce creatinine and slow down PKD progression. I recommend you to consult a renal dietitian to help make a proper diet plan for your daughter according to her specific illness conditions.
