6 Year Old Child Diagnosed with PKD: How to Treat It

6 Year Old Child Diagnosed with PKD: How to Treat ItIt isn’t so common that children are diagnosed with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, because PKD often progresses slowly that doesn’t cause any symptom in the early stage to warn the parents. Some children are found to have this disease when they do tests for other healthy problem. If this happens, how to treat their disease?

Parents whose children have PKD must have a similar experience.

My 6-year-old son was hospitalized on Sunday for horrible abdominal pain. The doctor did a CT scan and found cysts on his kidneys. He diagnosed him with PKD based on the fact that my husband, all of his brothers and my husband’s mother have this disease. As I understand typically, PKD is usually not found until adulthood. Why is my child diagnosed with it so early? Is there any effective treatment to make my son live and play as other children?

Treatment for children with PKD

No symptom to warn people of PKD in childhood is the main reason that most patients don’t know they have this disease until adulthood. However, this doesn’t mean it is bad to find they have this disease when they are young. On the contrary, the earlier they find it and accept treatment, the better their overall health.

In the early stage, all of kidney cysts are small and easy to control. At this time, herbal medicines have an outstanding superiority that can not only help increase the blood circulation in the whole body as well as the kidney cysts to prompt the reabsorption of sac fluid but also protect the kidney function. Only if kidney cysts stop growing and kidney function keeps at a high level, children with PKD can still enjoy their life like other kids.

If you don’t want your baby to do dialysis or kidney transplant in the future, you should let him or her accept correct treatment as soon as possible. Never miss any chance to give back your child a healthy life. You have some questions about these medicines or you want to know these medicines in detail?
