High blood pressure is one common symptom of PKD. About 50% PKD patients will have elevated blood pressure in the early stage of PKD when they still have normal kidney functions. With the continuous enlargement and increase of renal cysts in the kidneys, high blood pressure will become even worse. If left untreated or if it is poorly controlled, it will worsen renal damages and speed up the deterioration of illness conditions. Therefore early and effective treatment for high blood pressure is very important for PKD patients. Conventionally prescribed anti-hypertensive drugs such as ACEI and ARB all have potential renal damages if they are taken for the long run. Therefore more natural remedies are in the need. Acupuncture has been proved to be effective at lowering high blood pressure so as to help slow down PKD progression.

Acupuncture can help promote blood circulation and increase blood flow to the kidneys so as to help relieve high pressure, high perfusion and high filtration in the kidneys. This can help lower high blood pressure naturally and effectively.

Acupuncture can help ease chronic pains for PKD patients. Due to these renal cysts in the kidneys, patients often suffer from dull and persistent pains. In some cases, the pains can even become sharp and unbearable. Acupuncture has obvious effects on alleviating pains for PKD patients. But more cautions should be paid to avoid cyst rupture, therefore acupuncture should be done by professional doctors.

What is more, practicing acupuncture can help regulate immune disorder and improve immunity so as to help protect the kidneys from potential damages.
