Is There Anything I Can Do to Prevent Kidney Cysts Getting BiggerWhen the cysts are small, they do not impair the kidneys. But for patients with polycystic kidney disease, those kidney cysts enlarge with time going. When the size of cysts are bigger than 3 cm, they oppress the tissues around, leading to kidney function decline and some other problems. Is there anything I can do to prevent kidney cysts getting bigger?

Drink water

Some researches show that drinking water in the early stage of PKD can inhibit the growth of cysts so as to prevent kidney damage. But if you have severe edema, less urine output and impaired kidney function, you should restrict the intake of water, because it may increase the workload of kidneys so as to speed up the progression to kidney failure.

Supplement vitamin B3

Some other researches show that vitamin B3 inhibits the activity of a protein that influences the formation and growth of cysts. Therefore, you should supplement moderate vitamin B3 in the daily.

Control blood pressure

High blood pressure is a common symptom of PKD. Without treatment, it may stimulate the growth of cysts, impair kidney function and increase your risk of heart disease. Therefore, you should bring it under control as early as possible.

Give up unhealthy lifestyle

Drink alcohol, smoking, caffeine intake and medicine abuse are bad for cysts control, so you had better give up these unhealthy lifestyle.

Receive a good treatment

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a TCM therapy proved effective in controlling the growth of cysts. It can inhibit the abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of cyst fluid so as to stop the growth of cysts. It can also speed up the blood circulation and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that fluid can be reabsorbed and discharged out of the body.
