My husband has PKD in December out family doctor gave him Tamiflu. My husband was getting sicker. We found out his kidneys were shutting down. Could the cause be Tamiflu?



Could the Cause Of Kidney Function Decline In PKD Be TamifluHi. Thank you for consulting us.

First of all, you should know what Tamiflu is.

Tamiflu is used to treat symptoms caused by the flu virus. It alleviates the symptoms such as stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, fever, chills, aches and tiredness and shortens the recovery time by 1 to 2 days.

Second, what is PKD?

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder and there are multiple cysts on the kidneys. With the progression of kidney cysts, kidney cysts will become larger and larger. When big cysts compress renal tissues, they will cause ischemia and anoxia of the blood vessels in the kidneys. In a long term, kidneys will begin fibrosis due to lack of blood and oxygen supply. Under such a condition, kidneys will shut down and cannot work properly. Many symptoms like frequent urination at night, foamy urine, anemia and high blood pressure, etc can occur due to decline of kidney function.

Tamiflu is a medication to treat flu virus and reduce further damage on your husband’s condition. However, it is a medication to treat PKD, especially shrinking kidney cysts. The cause of kidney shutting down is due to enlarged kidney cysts. That is also the reason why your husband is getting sicker.

Third, what is the right treatment for PKD?

As for his condition, the treatment should be Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is on the basis of traditional Chinese medicines. This therapy can inactivate cyst epithelial cells, make its loss of secretory activity. Thus, the cystic fluid does not continue to secrete and cysts will stop growing. Besides, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can also increase cyst surface’s permeability of the blood circulation, absorb the cystic fluid and finally discharge the fluid by kidneys as urine. In this way, kidney cysts can be shrunk into small size and reduce damages on your kidney function. What’s more, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can also repair injured kidney cells and improve kidney function effectively.
