2013-04-19 11:46

PKD is characterized by numerous renal cysts in the kidneys. With the continuous secretion of cyst fluids, more cysts will be formed and the sizes of these cysts will become larger and larger. As a result, normal renal tissues will be replaced by these cysts become they need room and the kidneys will be greatly enlarged.

PKD patients often will have big stomach and palpable abdominal masses which often bring a lot of inconveniences to the patient’s normal life. They can not bend down or life heavy goods; they should avoid strenuous activities and any abdominal bumps or injuries. Because the renal cyst is fluid-filled and they are easy to get ruptured when they are large enough. In case of cyst rupture, patients will suffer a lot from sharp pains, blood in urine, infections, etc. If not handled well, the ruptured cyst can even cause sharp decline of kidney function and sudden deterioration of illness conditions, therefore patients should pay more attention in their daily life to avoid cyst rupture.

Actually it is possible to have a flat stomach again for PKD patients and the good thing is that surgery is not the only treatment option. Surgeries can remove the large renal cysts, but it can not help for the smaller ones. What is more, the recurrent rate is high and there are certain risks to have repeated surgeries.

Flat stomach can be achieved with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application and the active ingredients in the medicines can penetrate into the kidneys through acupoints and meridians on the skin and act on all the renal cysts in the kidneys. After the application, the cyst wall will be softened and cyst fluid will be re-absorbed into surrounding blood vessels so that the cysts will be gradually shrunk. What is more, Chinese medicines can act on the epithelial cells of the cyst wall and block further secretion of more cyst fluid so that the shrunk cysts will not grow again and the recurrent rate is much lowered compared with surgeries.

When the cysts in the kidneys are shrunk, enlarged kidneys will be shrunk and the stomach will become smaller and gradually become flat again.
