Does Everyone with PKD Get Dialysis

Does Everyone with PKD Get DialysisDialysis is needed when your kidney disease develops to end stage renal failure. But dialysis is just a kidney replacement treatment rather than a treatment to repair the damaged kidneys. That is to say, you have to do dialysis in your remaining years unless you find a suitable kidney source to do kidney transplant. Besides, dialysis has many complications that can make your body malaise as well. PKD is an inherited disease that can impair your kidneys. Does everyone with PKD get dialysis?

Not everyone with PKD gets dialysis.

PKD is a kind of kidney disease characterized by fluid-filled cysts. Those cysts enlarge with time going, which oppress the tissues around. As a result, your kidney function gradually declines. Generally speaking, patients with PKD have high blood pressure in 30s, high serum creatinine in 40s and kidney failure in 50s. If you can control the growth of kidney cysts, you can prevent kidney failure so that there is no need to do dialysis.

How to avoid dialysis for PKD patients?

Conventional treatment for PKD is to control its symptoms, such as high blood pressure. Though it helps slow down the progression to kidney failure, it can not stop the growth of cysts and at last you may have to do dialysis. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a new choice for PKD patients. It can suppress the abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and reduce the secretion of lining cells so that cysts stop growing. This therapy can also speed up blood circulation and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that fluid can be reabsorbed and discharged out of the body with blood circulation. And then the cysts become small. When the cysts get controlled, you can protect your kidney function well and avoid dialysis.

The earlier treatment you receive, the more kidney function you can preserve and the more possibility for you to avoid dialysis. If desired, please contact us freely.
