Is There A Connection Between Joint Pain and PKDIs there a connection between joint pain and PKD? Recently many PKD patients consult our online doctor such a question. Now let’s have a look together.

PKD can cause joint pain.

PKD is an inherited kidney disease characterized by fluid-filled cysts. With the enlargement of cysts, they cause damage to your kidneys. As a result, waste products build up in the blood. Uric acid is a waste product of purine. When their concentration in the blood is very high, it may crystallize and deposit in the joints, leading to joint pain.

How to relieve joint pain for PKD patients?

If your joint pain is just an acute attack, you can rest the affected joints, use ice to reduce swelling, take short-term medicines such as corticosteroids, NSAIDs and so on to relieve it and you can also massage your joints or take acupuncture to improve blood circulation so as to alleviate joint pain. To manage long-term joint pain and prevent future attacks, you should take medicines as your doctor prescribes for pain and take a long-term medicine that reduces uric acid levels in the blood. The fundamental way is to resume your kidney function. There are many therapies to help you.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can stop the growth of cysts and shrink them to stop further damage to your kidneys.

-Mai Kang Mixture, Medicated Foot Bath and various Medicinal Soup are often used together with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. They can help you dilate blood vessels and block blood clot to increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. They can decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. They can also regulate blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar level. All in all, they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and provide the essential nutrients for the damaged kidneys to recover. With the improvement of kidney function, uric acid can be removed out of the body, and then joint pain can be eased.
