Is Alpha Lipoic Acid Helpful for Polycystic Kidney Disease

ALPHA lipoic acid an vitamin-like chemical called an antioxidant. Is it helpful for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)?

Health benefits of alpha lipoic acid

Alpha-lipoic acid is used for diabetes and nerve-related symptoms of diabetes including burning, pain, and numbness in the legs and arms. It can increase insulin sensibility and glucose metabolism. Therefore, it is very good for balancing blood sugar level, which is also preventing kidney damage.

In that case, it is helpful for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. However, this supplement cannot treat this kind of kidney disease, because there is no evidence show that it can shrink kidney cyst or repair damaged renal tissues.

Treatment options for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic disorder which isn’t curable, but can be well treated. In general, people do not know they have this kidney disease, because it cause no symptoms in the beginning stage. The doctor won’t give you treatment suggestions until some symptoms occur. When that happens, you will be given some medicines such as painkillers, diuretics, antibiotics and hypertensive drugs, etc. Medicines are indeed helpful for controlling symptoms but cannot solve the underlying problem.

I recommend you to take traditional Chinese medicines. Unlike over-the-counter medicines, traditional Chinese herbs can shrink kidney cyst naturally. Based on these natural herbs, we innovate several therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Cycle Therapy and Foot Bath, etc. They aim at treating kidney disease by improving blood circulation to repair the damaged renal tissues.

As long as the blood circulation is fluent, cystic fluid can be absorbed and discharged effectively. Since they are all external application, they are safe for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients.
