2013-04-18 15:50

Increasing kidney cyst and progressive loss of kidney function are the typical characteristics of PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease). For patients with PKD in early stage, treatment that can shrink kidney cysts effectively will help them live far away from dialysis. However, for an individual who only have 18% kidney function because of PKD, what is the best treatment method?

PKD is an inherited kidney disorder which can cause formation of cysts in kidney. These cysts become larger and larger, which may cause damages on surrounding kidney tissues. Therefore, no matter for patients with PKD in early stage or advanced stage, stopping kidney cyst from enlarging is very essential, as it helps to avoid further kidney damages. PKD stops progressing when kidney cysts stop becoming large.

For people with PKD in early stage, they still have lots of kidney function, so as long as further kidney damages are avoided, kidney failure is prevented to some extend. However, for PKD patients whose only have 18% kidney function, a treatment which not only shows treatment effects in stopping kidney cyst from enlarging, but also have ability to improve kidney function is needed.

We know kidney is composed of different kidney tissues and when kidney function is impaired seriously, residual kidney tissues have to work hardly to help PKD patients to maintain a normal life. Long-term hard working will cause damage on these healthy kidney tissues and make them unable in functioning properly. Therefore, it is necessary for PKD patients who only have 18% kidney function to repair injured kidney intrinsic cells. As long as much more kidney cells perform function, burden on other kidney tissure are reduced greatly and also the residual kidney tissues survive easily.

At present, only some Chinese medicines have the ability to repair injured kidney intrinsic cells. Kidney intrinsic cells have self-repairing ability and when the damage is beyond their ability, they become necrotic. However, under the effects of effective ingredients in Chinese medicines, these injured kidney cells can be activated to perform function again.

For PKD patients who only have 18% kidney function, their kidney condition have been affected seriously, and if they do not improve their kidney condition, their kidney function will keep decreasing. Therefore, it is of great importance for PKD patients to find a treatment which can help them improve kidney condition.
