What Else Can Doctor Do for PKD Patients Except for Ultrasound TestPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder causing innumerable cysts on the kidneys. What else can doctor do for PKD patients except for ultrasound test?

Why PKD patient need a regular ultrasound test?

The kidney cysts grow with age. When the cyst is very big, it can press nearby organs, including the kidney itself. A regular ultrasound test is to monitor the growth of the kidney cyst and help doctors take proper actions for patients.

In general, doctor will do nothing unless patients have some symptoms such as back pain, side pain, flank pain, high blood pressure, blood in urine (hematuria) and Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), etc. Most patients see these symptoms when they are at 30 to 40 years old. However, is it true that doctor can do nothing during this period?

Treatment for Polycystic Kidney Disease

In the past, doctor always tell the patients that they just need to wait the kidney cyst to grow big, then they can give some medicines or do surgery to shrink it. If the cyst is small and cause no symptoms, the patients can leave it alone.

Yet, nowadays, there are some new treatments for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients to take to prevent the above problems. In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, we mainly use traditional Chinese herbs to treat kidney disease. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is an innovation of Chinese herbs, has significant effect on shrinking kidney cyst in a natural way. More important, this therapy aims at enhancing kidney function, which is key to dealing with any type of kidney disease. This external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints has been recognized by many patients from abroad and at home.
