Manage Polycystic Kidney Disease in Children Under Five Years OldThere are two types of Polycystic Kidney Disease: ADPKD (Autosomal Dominant PKD) and ARPKD (Autosomal Recessive PKD). ARPKD is uncommon and is typically diagnosed in infancy or in utero. You can learn how to manage Polycystic Kidney Disease in children under five years old.

There is no treatment for Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease. However, treatments are available to manage this problem. The target has two aspects:

You can send the test report to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty can give you some suggestions. Here is a brief introduction about management for general patients.

Management for symptoms and complications in ARPKD

-High blood pressure: There are two types of medication called ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme ) inhibitors and ARBs (angiotensin II receptor blockers). Other hypertensive drugs such as calcium channel blockers, beta-blockers and diuretics may be also used.

-Anemia: It refers to a condition where red blood cells lacks. This can be treated with iron supplements, injections of erythropoietin (EPO) that is a hormone produced by kidneys to stimulate red blood cell generation, or blood transfusion in severe cases.

-Bone problem. It is always due to high phosphorous level, which can be treated with a medication called a phosphorous binder that is taken with meals.

-Growth problems. This can be treated with injections of human growth hormone (HGH), a synthetic version of the hormones used by the body to stimulate growth.

Improve kidney function

The above methods sometimes help you to slow down the progression of kidney damaged, but cannot solve the underlying problem. To improve kidney function while shrink kidney cysts, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. They are proved to be very natural and effective for patients. Even children can take them without any side effects. If you want to try, contact with us freely.
