If I Have PKD, Can I Get A New KidneyIf I have PKD, can I get a new kidney?

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a common genetic disease, in which cysts grow progressively larger and eventually damage the structure and function of the kidney, leading to end-stage renal failure. And then you may have to do dialysis or kidney transplant to maintain your life.

Kidney transplant for PKD

This treatment is better than dialysis for kidney patients, because it can allow patients to go back a relatively normal life. But it is difficult to find a kidney donor. And even if you can have a kidney transplant, you have to take immunosuppressants for long term to prevent the new kidney from being rejected by your body. These drugs can increase your risk of infections. What is worse, the transplanted kidney can not survive forever. Several years, when it fails to work, you have to start dialysis or do second kidney transplant.

If your PKD is not in ESRD, you may take some conservative treatment into consideration.

Before your kidneys are severely damaged by the kidney cysts, you can try some therapies to shrink them and prevent them from impairing your renal function. In our hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used.

This is a great innovation of traditional Chinese medicine, which can infiltrate the micronized herbs into polycystic kidneys directly. When active ingredients of medicine reach the kidneys, they can suppress the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to prevent renal cysts from growing further. They can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will shrink gradually. Generally speaking, after about one month’s treatment, you will see remarkable therapeutic effect.

If your PKD is in advanced stage, you can also combine other treatment, such as Toxin-Removing Therapy. It can help make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application.

Can you get a new kidney if you have PKD? The answer is definite, but if your disease is not that severe, you can take conservative treatment firstly to shrink kidney cysts and stop their growth. For more information on PKD treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
