How to Preserve Kidney Function 23% for PKD Patients

How to Preserve Kidney Function 23% for PKD PatientsKidney function 23% means Polycystic Kidney Disease stays in stage 4. If drops continuously, kidney function less than 15% will drive patients to consider dialysis or kidney transplant. How important it is to preserve kidney function for PKD patients when it is 23%!

Making clear the root causes should be the first step

In the early stage of PKD, the decline of kidney function results from the expansion of kidney cyst. However, in end stage, the enlarged kidney cyst is only the reason. At this situation, even though the cyst stops growing, kidney function still continues to reduce with common damage mechanisms such as slow blood flow to kidneys and the deposition of toxins. Therefore, to keep kidney function from diminishing, the treatment should be systemic and effective and it mainly has three purposes.

1. Control complications well

High blood pressure, infections and proteinuria are three biggest risks for further kidney damage. High blood pressure worsens the condition of ischemia and hypoxia for kidney inherent cells, severe infections may lead to sepsis or even death, while proteinuria can increase the filter aperture of glomerular basement membrane so that more protein leaks from the kidney. Well control of these complications is a must to avoid kidney function decline.

2. Increase the blood flow through kidney

Slow blood flow transports less nutritions and oxygen to kidney functioning cells. What’s worse, more toxins build up in the body along with low blood circulation. The dilation of blood vessels throughout the body especially the kidney can increase the blood flow and correct kidneys’ ischemia and hypoxia condition. In the same time, restore the autoimmune regulation function of kidney inherent cells, in order to improve kidney function.

3. Shrink PKD renal cysts

No matter how well the above two purposes are achieved, the constant growth of PKD cysts can destroy them easily. Therefore, shrinking these cysts is also quite crucial. Natural remedies without any side effect are best. (More relative informations can be found in “A Natural Cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)”).

Kidney function determines PKD patients’ life quality largely. As along as your kidney function is preserved and stays at 23% or more, you can live just like healthy people.
