2014-12-31 11:34

What Does It Mean When You Have Stage 2 PKDPKD is a kind of chronic kidney disease (CKD). According to GFR, CKD is classified into 5 stages. Stage 2 means your GFR ranges from 60 to 89. What does it mean when you have stage 2 PKD?

From the declined GFR, we can see that your kidney function decreases. As we all know, PKD is an inherited kidney disease characterized by fluid-filled cysts. It is those cysts that causes your kidney function impairment. In fact, you were born with those cysts, but because they are too small to be detected. When you grow to 20 years old, they begin to grow. When you are 30-40, they grow quickly and then there will be symptoms such as back pain and high blood pressure. After 40 years old, those cysts may be very big so that you have more symptoms, such as back pain, proteinuria, blood urine, high blood pressure, etc. When they are big enough, they may burst and then you may have to be hospitalized. The enlarged cysts oppress the kidney tissues and other organs so as to affect their normal function. You are in stage 2 PKD, which means those cysts are growing and damaging the kidney tissues around. If you want to prevent kidney failure, treatment should be taken now.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a TCM treatment. It can suppress 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 blood circulation in the cyst wall and increase its permeability so that fluid can be reabsorbed into the blood and then be discharged out of the body. And then the cysts become small. Small cysts are less destructive.

In stage 2, there are usually no symptoms to indicate the kidneys are damaged. You should attach importance to it. If you can take treatment early in this stage, it is possible for you to prevent kidney failure and live a normal life.
