Can You Pass away from Polycystic Kidney DiseasePKD runs in families. When you see some of your family members die from this disease, you may be very horrible. Can you pass away from polycystic kidney disease (PKD) as well? After reading this article, you will find out the answer.

You may die from PKD.

-PKD can affect other organs besides the kidney. If PKD affects the brain, it can cause an aneurysm. An aneurysm is a bulging blood vessel that can burst, resulting in a stroke or even death.

-High blood pressure is a common symptom of PKD. With the progression of PKD, blood pressure will be more and more difficult to be controlled. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of cardiovascular disease, threatening your life.

How to reduce the risk of PKD to your life?

-Do physical exam regularly to check whether there is an aneurysm in your brain. Once you find it, you should take treatment as early as possible to remove it.

-High blood pressure results from the growing cysts, so to lower it, it is not enough to simply take medicine such as ACEI and ARBs. You should stop the growth of cysts and shrink them. So far there is no effective treatment in western medicine. Here I recommend Chinese medicine like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can inhibit the proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and secretion of lining cells to stop the growth of cysts. It can also increase the pressure difference inside and outside of cyst wall and speed up blood circulation so that cyst fluid can be taken away. In such a case, cysts shrink gradually. Moreover, you can use some other Chinese medicine together to protect your kidneys from being damaged.

Can you pass away from polycystic kidney disease? Yes, you can, but if in the daily you can have a good control of your PKD and do physical examination regularly to prevent other complications occurrence, it is possible for you to lead a normal and full life.
