Back Pain And Blood in Urine in ADPKD

2013-09-28 18:14

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) can be divided into two types: ADPKD and ARPKD.In clinic,ADPKD is more commonly seen as most of people with ARPKD die at a very young age and even few days after birth.ADPKD is a progressive disorder.As renal function declines, a host of symptoms will appear, in which back pain and blood in urine are very common.

Causes of back pain and blood in urine in PKD

ADPKD is featured with numerous cysts on kidneys.With age, the cysts will increase in both size and number gradually.So many large cysts may cause pressure against the adjacent kidney tissues,thus resulting in kidney pain.The pain due to enlarged cysts is generally mild.

However,if more and more cystic fluid builds up in cysts,the pressure inside the cysts will become higher and higher.When the pressure increases to a certain level,the cysts will become prone to rupture.The rupturing of cysts will cause extreme pain and blood in urine.In this case,the pain and blood in urine usually last for about a week and will recover.

Apart from cyst rupturing and enlarged cysts,other possible causes of back pain and blood in urine in ADPKD include kidney and cyst infection and kidney stone.These two conditions are very commonly in ADPKD.

Treatment for back pain and blood in urine in ADPKD

Pain killers are used to treat back pain in ADPKD.If the back pain and blood in urine are associated with other conditions like kidney stone,cyst infection etc,these conditions should be controlled. However, these treatments can not control the causes of back pain in blood in urine.

To treat back pain and blood in urine in ADPKD fundamentally, the patients should have treatment to stop the cysts from increasing in size and shrinking the large ones.Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is the recommended treatment for ADPKD.
