When to Start Dialysis on PKD PatientsWhen to start dialysis on PKD patients? As we know, PKD means numerous kidney cysts on kidneys, and the cysts will be increased and get enlarged over time, which will oppress the surrounding kidney tissues and finally cause kidney failure. Since PKD is a progressive kidney disease, so patients will wonder when they need to start dialysis with the PKD. In this article, we will have further understanding of this question.

When to start dialysis on PKD patients?

Since the increase and enlargement of kidney cysts will finally cause kidney failure, so PKD patients will finally live on dialysis when the PKD develop into kidney failure. In general, when the creatinine level is increased into 5 mg/dl, patients may need to start dialysis. Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism, and it is mainly excreted by kidneys. When the kidneys are damaged severely, or the kidney function is less than 50%, patients will have elevated creatinine level. If the creatinine level is higher than 5 mg/dl, it means there are too much toxins and wastes in blood, and they need to have dialysis to remove the harmful substances in blood, which can help prolong the life expectancy.

However, creatinine level in blood is not the only standard for patients to start dialysis. If patients have some severe symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, severe swelling, skin itching, etc, they also need to have dialysis. Because these symptoms means there are too much toxins and waste in blood, which will cause damage to other organs in body.

How to prevent dialysis in PKD?

From above, we can know that the kidney failure in PKD is mainly caused by the increase and enlargement of kidney cysts, so in order to prevent dialysis, PKD patients need to have treatment to shrink the kidney cysts and prevent the growth of cysts.

Here we recommended Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which uses traditional Chinese herbal medicine, and the herbs have the function of removing the fluid in cysts and prevent the secretion of fluid from cyst walls, all these can help shrink the kidney cysts and prevent the enlargement of cysts. In addition, the Osmotherapy can also help repair the kidney damage and improve the kidney function, all these can help stop the progression of kidney failure from PKD. And this will finally prevent dialysis for PKD patients.
