Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Be Treated and Live With for YearsPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder that can cause kidney function damage. About half of PKD patients develop Kidney Failure by the age of 60. Well, all of us do not want to see that. Then, can Polycystic Kidney Disease be treated and live with for years to come?

Treatment options for Polycystic Kidney Disease

● Medicines

Medicines are sometimes necessary to control certain symptom like high blood pressure, blood in urine and urinary tract infection, etc. But they cannot shrink big cysts. You should take medicines under your doctor’s supervision since some of the medicines are nephrotoxic.

● Surgery

Surgery may be taken to drain the cyst fluid out. However, there are many side effects of surgery, so I don’t recommend this treatment option if Polycystic Kidney Disease patient have no severe or uncontrolled symptoms.

During surgery, infection is likely to occur. What’s more, when big cysts are drained, the pressure reduces. As a result, the surrounding small cysts will grow rapidly. This may lead to more serious kidney damage. Also, after surgery, the cyst will recur in 6 months to 2 years.

● Traditional Chinese Medicine

It is also called traditional Chinese herbs. They are proved to be very natural and effective for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. The effective ingredients of Chinese herbs can inhibit renal epithelial cells from secreting fluid any more, so cyst won’t keep on growing. Meanwhile, they have the function of dilating blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes so as to increase blood circulation. Therefore, the cyst fluid can be reabsorbed into blood vessels and then discharged by kidneys as urine.
