Ways to help PKD patients improve appetite

Poor appetite affects the intake of nutrients so that it is easy for you to suffer from malnutrition, which worsens your disease further. Therefore, importance should be attached to poor appetite.

First, you can do some gentle exercise, such as walking and jogging, which can help you improve appetite.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can inhibit the abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of lining cells so as to stop the growth of cysts. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and the pressure inside and outside of the cyst wall so that fluid can be reabsorbed into the blood and then be discharged out of the body. And the those cysts become small. Moreover, this therapy can restore kidney function by its ability of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, blood vessel dilation and extracellular matrix degradation. With the improvement of kidney function, your appetite will also be enhanced.

PKD should be treated as early as possible, because when the cysts are big enough, they may burst and cause many other complication. For more information about PKD, please contact online doctor.
