What Are Some Of The Signs Of PKD

2015-02-17 01:29


I have a 7 years old son who has polycystic kidney disease (PKD). He only weighs 41lbs and I can not seem to get him to gain weight. What are some of the signs I should be looking for involving kidney disease?


What Are Some Of The Signs Of PKDIt is common to have PKD for years without developing any symptoms or realizing that you have the condition. Indeed, some people with PKD never have any symptoms or problems. However, in most cases, symptoms develop at some point-commonly sometime between the age of 30 and 50 years. Some of the first symptoms and signs that may develop include one or more of the following:

Blood in urine-which may come and go.

This is due to one or more cysts bleeding from time to time.

Pain over one or both kidneys.

This is due to enlarged kidneys.

Kidney stones.

Symptoms of a kidney stone can occur from no symptoms at all to severe pain if a stone becomes blocked in a ureter.

Protein in urine

High blood pressure

Recurring kidney infections

The treatment for PKD should manage symptoms first. Controlling high blood pressure is the most important part of treatment. Treatment may include pain medication, blood pressure medication, antibiotics, a low sodium diet, diuretics to help remove excess fluid, surgery to drain cysts and help relieve discomfort. With advanced PKD, dialysis and kidney transplant may be necessary. But you should know dialysis and kidney transplant are not the only remedies for PKD. If you want to treat PKD fundamentally, you should use Chinese medicine treatments including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Medicated Bath, Acupuncture and Mai Kang Mixture, etc. These therapies can not only control symptoms but also repair damaged kidneys as well as improve kidney function.
