Question: Hello, I have polycystic kidneys which have double in size. Right now my kidneys are still functioning. Just feel pressure especially on right side. I need herbs to reduce size and direction on how to treat. Thank you.

Herbs to Reduce Size of Polycystic KidneysAnswer: PKD is a genetic kidney disorder. Although there is no cure for it, it can be fully controlled without developing into kidney failure in future.

We all know that PKD is featured by numerous cysts covering the kidneys. And theoretically, about half a million cyst can form in two kidneys. But, most of them are too small to be observed. We only spot these big ones. At present, as those cysts are small, you have not developed any discomforts.

However, as the cysts keep increasing in size with time, the cysts will certainly cause pressure against nephrons, thus leading to progressive renal function deterioration. Meanwhile, due to the pressure in abdomen and pressure against the adjacent organs, you will suffer from serious back pain, rupturing of cysts and blood in urine etc. By age 60, approximately 50% of PKD patients will develop ESRD and have to recur to dialysis or transplant.

In traditional treatment method, we draw the big cysts with surgery. This action can relieve discomforts temporarily. However, as there are numerous cysts in kidneys, it is not possible to remove them all. What's worse, once the small ones are removed, the small ones will grow big soon.

In PKD, the inner wall of the cysts is filled with numerous lining cells. With time, those lining cells will secrete more and more fluid. As a result, those cysts will increase in size progressively.

We use Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and duonangxiao( a kind of oral medicine) to treat PKD. These treatments can expand blood vessels, speed up blood circulation on cysts walls, and improve the permeability of the small blood vessels on cyst wall thus making the cysts shrink and decrease.

Meanwhile, the effective medicines will restrain the proliferation of the lining cells, so the secretion of cyst liquid will be reduced. When the internal pressure of the cyst declined, the size of the cyst will gradually become smaller, thus relieving the compression of the tissues around, improving microcirculation, and blocking the progressing of renal fibrosis. In addition, this therapy or the medical ingredients circulate with kidneys, so all cysts, no matter big or small, would be treated. So, these cysts, after being shrunken, won't grow up again.
