PKD: How to Get Cysts to Shrink to Preserve Kidney TissuesPolycystic kidney disease (PKD) causes numerous cysts to grow in the kidneys. If too many cysts grow or if they get too big, the kidney tissues can become damaged. How to get cysts to shrink to preserve kidney tissues for PKD patients? Read on to learn more information.

First of all, you should know why the kidney cysts keep on enlarging.

The growth of kidney cysts are associated with abnormal genes. Currently we can not change genes, so PKD is incurable. But it does not mean we can not control the disease. Because the growth of kidney cysts are also related to the abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and the secretion of lining cells. The renal tubule epithelial cells will become cyst wall, and lining cells will secrete fluid. If we can restrain these activities, renal cysts will stop growing.

Treatment to get cysts to shrink so as to preserve kidney tissues

In western medicine, surgeries are often used to drain the cyst fluid. But once the big cysts are removed, the small ones will grow up quickly. Therefore, this is only temporary medical relief. In Chinese medicine, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used for kidney cysts. It is a little different from the traditional Chinese medicine, because it can infiltrate the micronized herbs into polycystic kidneys directly. This treatment can dilate blood vessels and speed up blood microcirculation on cyst wall so that fluid can be taken away from inside. It can also inhibit the secretion of lining cells to reduce the production of cyst fluid. Under these two functions, renal cysts will shrink gradually. Generally speaking, after about one month’s treatment, you will see the effect. And then renal function will be improved.
