2013-04-29 15:36

Increasing kidney cyst is the typical characteristic of PKD and also the major aggravating factor of illness condition. When kidney cysts are removed effectively in early stage, most of the healthy kidney function will be protected and this plays an important role for PKD patients to live normally in the following days. Therefore, how to remove kidney cysts becomes a common concern for PKD patients.

Different medical treatment brings different treatment effects. For some PKD patients, they may be able to stop or slow down illness progression effectively after the treatment. And for others, their illness condition may run to kidney failure stage quickly due to the medical treatment. In this light, finding a proper therapeutic method is extremely important.

So far, only two medical treatments are commonly used to remove kidney cysts for PKD patients. One is surgery and another one is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy:

Surgery: Surgery is the most direct treatment method to remove big cysts from kidney. It is a medical procedure in which cysts are drained and then injected with alcohol to inactivate cells in cystic wall. In this way, big kidney cysts can be removed effectively and quickly, but disappointedly, this method is only helpful for big cysts that grow in the outter part of the kidney. What is worse, nephrologists found small kidney cysts enlarge quickly after the surgery and this is because there are enough space for small kidney cysts to grow up when surrounding kidney cysts are removed. Therefore, surgery is a quick but not a long-term solution.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: Compared with surgery, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy brings effects slowly. It can not help PKD patients remove cysts from kidney immediately, but it can shrink cysts by reducing fluid inside the cyst. We know kidney cysts enlarge because of increased cystic fluid, so when fluid inside the cyst is reduced effectively, kidney cysts get shrunk. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy shows treatment effects slowly, but it causes no side effects and pain during the whole process. What is more, this treatment method can wok on all the kidney cysts at one time.
