Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) usually develops very slowly, so healthy problems usually do not develop until stage 3 of Polycystic Kidney Disease. If left untreated in this stage, patients’ condition will progress to end stage where it is difficult to reverse their disease. Therefore, prompt treatment and a healthy diet is very necessary for people with stage 3 PKD to avoid kidney failure.

Symptom of stage 3 PKD

In stage 3 of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), fluid-filled cysts are so big that they begin to press on the normal parts of the kidney and are more likely to cause the following symptoms:

● High blood pressure

● Back or lower side pain

● Kidney stone

● Urinate changes including color, pain and foam

● Urinary tract infections

If you are diagnosed with PKD and have one or more symptoms the above mentioned, your condition may have developed at least stage 3. Here, a healthy diet and prompt treatment are needed to slow down the progression of your condition deteriorating kidney failure.

Treatment

Complication control and kidney cyst shrinkage are two indispensable parts of the whole treatment. Firstly, high blood pressure is the most common symptom of PKD and usually occurs earlier than other symptoms. If uncontrolled effectively, repeating high blood pressure may accelerate the progression of patients’ condition and cause irreversible kidney damage. A low-salt diet and anti-hypertensive agents such as ACEI and ARBs can work successfully.

As for kidney cysts shrinkage, Chinese herbs are helpful, because they can not only improve the reabsorption of sac fluid but also block their fluid supply. Without enough filling fluid, these kidney cysts shrink gradually. However, different patients need to use different medicines, so you are recommended to first tell the online doctor your condition or your report so that they can help you make a correct treatment and diet plan.
