No matter which kidney disease you have, kidney failure is always your biggest life-threatening complication. Polycystic Kidney Disease typically progresses through 5 stages, and it is reported that nearly 60% of patients who have PKD have kidney failure by age 60. This is why so many people want to know how to keep Polycystic Kidney Disease from progressing to kidney failure?

How does PKD develop kidney failure?

Because Polycystic Kidney Disease progresses chronically, kidneys don’t fail all at once. In early stage, kidney cysts are very small and they usually don’t cause any symptom and kidney damage. However, with the growth of kidney cysts, they will replace more and more kidney normal tissues. If patients lose more than 85% of kidney function, it means their condition has developed end stage renal disease or kidney failure.

How to keep Polycystic Kidney Disease from progressing to kidney failure?

In the early stage, it is not so difficult to stop the growth of kidney cysts with effective and prompt treatment. A healthy diet, some herbal teas and regular follow up is able to help achieve this goal. Drinking more water, low protein, low salt and more fruits and vegetables indeed can slow down the progression of patients’ condition. Of course, this diet changes along with patients’ condition. If you have early-stage PKD, you can tell your condition to the online doctor so that he can help you make a correct diet plan and suggest you some herbal teas.

However, the treatment will be quite different if patients’ condition has developed moderate or end stage.
