Sleep Problems and Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

2015-10-09 02:03

Sleep Problems and Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disease in which multiple kidney cysts grow on the kidneys. The kidney cysts will keep on growing with time going on. When they enlarge to a certain size, they will affect body function, causing a series of symptoms. Sleep problems are common complications in PKD.

1. Itchy skin

With kidney disease, kidneys cannot discharge wastes from the body timely. Wastes are easy to accumulate in the body, causing itchy skin. Itchy skin makes you suffer from a poor sleep quality.

2. Restless leg syndrome

Restless leg syndrome is another complication in PKD. It can be irritating, itchy or painful, which all affect your sleep quality.

3. Inadequate dialysis clearance

A build up of waste in the blood can cause you to feel ill and uncomfortable. This could make your sleep difficult. If you are on peritoneal dialysis, your doctor will test your dialysate to make sure it is pulling enough waste and toxins from your body.

4. Emotions

Worry, anxiety and sadness can keep you up at night.

5. Changes in your sleep patterns

Sometimes patients who have PKD are more tired than usual. They are easy to fall asleep earlier than their normal bedtime or nap during the day. If you think that a nap can help you, limit your nap time. Naps that last longer than an hour can disrupt your sleep cycle.

The above are some common reasons that contribute to sleep problems in PKD. Of course, many other reasons may also cause sleep problems.

To treat sleep problems from the root, we need to shrink kidney cyst and improve kidney function. We recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and the active ingredients in Chinese medicines can come to kidney lesion directly with the help of osmosis device. This therapy is able to stop the growth of kidney cyst and shrink kidney cyst gradually. When kidney cysts become smaller, kidney damage can be reduced. Besides, this therapy can also improve kidney function by way of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing necessary nutrients. When kidney function is improved, not only sleep problems but also other symptoms can all be alleviated effectively.
