How to Slow Down the Progression of PKD Developing Renal Failure
Polycystic Kidney Disease, an inherited kidney disorder, is a progressive condition where patients’ kidney function won’t lose completely in a short time. However, there is no specific therapy to treat this disease thoroughly at present, so to slow down the progression of PKD developing renal failure is the best method to prolong patients’ life expectancy and improve their life quality.
To find out the effective treatment, we must first have an overall understanding of PKD.
PKD is characterized by numerous fluid-filled cysts growing in the kidney. Generally, it is a mild disease and only causes some minor damages in the first several years. However, if uncontrolled effectively in the early stage, renal cysts will become bigger and bigger or even some of them will rupture. If one of these situations occurs, patients’ condition will worsen. The reason is that when some of renal cysts grow too big, they are more likely to oppress their surrounding tissues, while the rupture of a renal cyst can make sac fluid spread to other organs and cause severe complications. In view of this, shrinking renal cysts and preventing the rupture of these cysts is the key to slow down the progression of PKD developing renal failure.
