How to Avoid Kidney Damage with PKD

2014-10-26 16:02

Q:

My wife Afshan has been diagnosed PKD. She is 41 year old. Her creatinine level is within normal limits. Due to cysts she is feeling pain in her back. She has BP for which she takes medicine and it is under control. I want to know any treatment available for her PKD so that we can avoid damage of her kidney. She has small kid to take care of.

A:

How to Avoid Kidney Damage with PKDPKD is a genetic kidney disease characterized by fluid-filled cysts. These cysts enlarge with time going. Without control, they will cause kidney damage. Creatinine level indicates how well the kidneys function. From what you said, we can see that her creatinine level is within normal limits and her blood pressure is also under control. It means her kidneys are still working very well. But her back pain means that these cysts begin to oppress the tissues around. If you want to avoid damage of her kidneys, treatment to shrink these cysts is needed. There are usually two kinds of treatment.

Surgery treatment

Sclerotherapy and laparoscopic cyst decortication are the two common surgeries to pull fluid out of the cysts. But surgery can only remove certain big cysts. Because there are so many cysts. Once you remove the big ones, the small ones will quickly grow up. Therefore, surgery can only help her alleviate pain temporarily.

Conservative treatment

When treating PKD, we often prefer conservative treatment. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is just to put two herbal bags on the back area. With the help of osmosis devices, the active ingredients can be infiltrated into the polycystic kidneys. They can restrain the abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of lining cells so that the cysts stop growth. They can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and speed up blood circulation so that fluid can be reabsorbed and discharged from the cyst. In this way cysts become small. And then kidney damage can be avoided.
