2013-12-25 11:42

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a very difficult condition to manage.What’s more,some conditions complicate PKD further like fever.Does fever in PKD imply any serious problem?

Causes of fever in PKD

Cyst infection is a major cause of fever in PKD.Cyst rupturing can contribute to the infection.PKD is featured with numerous cysts on kidneys.As the cysts enlarge with age,they will become prone to rupturing.The cyst may become infected if the cystic fluid can not be eliminated from body normally.

Another common cause of fever in PKD is urinary tract infection. Rupturing of large cysts is a possible contributor of urinary tract infection.In addition,the enlarged cyst may obstruct urinary tract.If the urine linger in urinary tract,it may also cause urinary tract infection.

In addition, the fever may not be associated with PKD.

How to deal with fever in PKD?

The first step is to figure out the cause of fever in PKD. If you have no idea about it,you can chat with our live doctor for suggestions now.

If the fever is caused by infection,antibiotic treatment will be recommended.However,if the infection is inside kidneys,the common antibiotic drugs can not penetrate the kidneys.If so, antibiotic drugs with penetrating ability should be prescribed.

As the infection in PKD is due to enlarged cysts,a treatment should be applied to control cysts fundamentally.

Hot Compress Therapy is a recommended treatment for PKD. It is an externally applied therapy in which different kinds of Chinese herbs are applied in the therapy based on a patient’s specific illness condition. As the medicines can be penetrated into kidney lesion directly through the kidney area, the therapy can take effect more rapidly. Also, it is free of adverse effects on body. The therapy can stop the cysts from enlarging and shrink the large ones effectively. Once the underlying cause of infection is controlled, fever will be prevented fundamentally.
