Fight Against Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

2016-04-21 05:44

Name: Mr Cai 

Gender: Male 

Age: 35

Country: China 

Diagnose: Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

Patient Word:

It is difficulty to treat polycystic kidney disease (PKD). On one hand, it is a kind of genetic kidney disease so current medical methods cannot treat its pathogenic root. On the other hand, PKD progresses slowly so many patients do not treat it timely, which will increase the difficulty of treatment.

Take Mr Cai for an example, he was diagnosed with PKD in 2009. His local doctor asked him to take cyst decortication. But he refused that. On the contrary, he took Chinese medicine to maintain his disease but he suffered from back pain all the time. In 2014, he came to our hospital to accept systematic treatment.

In 5 years’ time, his kidneys are enlarged nearly twice the usual amount of kidneys. This was a great shock to Mr Cai.

More seriously, his doctor always says this disease cannot be treated from the root. Only surgery can be done to alleviate the medication. His disease becomes more seriously with 5 years’ medication. It seems that it proves that the word of his doctor is right.

Is it true?

PKD is induced by genetic inheritance so it indeed cannot be cured at present. However, it does not mean we cannot control its development. It also does not mean only surgery can make it.

Modern medical science has found that although the pathogenic factor of PKD is due to genetic inheritance. But its direct cause is lining epithelial dysplasia. We cannot change gene but we have methods to control the activity of lining cells.

After half a month of treatment, his kidneys are shrunk obviously. The treatment in our hospital-Shi Jiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital is still Chinese medicine treatment but it is not simple like oral Chinese Medicine. Chinese medicine treatment in our hospital include oral Chinese medicine, hot compress therapy, foot bath therapy, medicated bath therapy and steaming therapy and other Chinese medicine.

Mr Cai continues to take medication and his medical condition gets further control. Now he is just like a normal person. His life does not be affected. We hope more and more PKD patients come to our hospital to take treatment and live a happy life as early as possible.
