2015-11-12 01:18

Many Body Sysptoms Will Be Affected By PKDPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) may cause various effects on different human body systems. Here are a few ways that systems are affected. Well then, what body systems will be affected by PKD?

1. Excretory system

Because the kidney is the major organ of the excretory system, so PKD has many negative effects on the excretory system, such as blood in urine or frequent kidney infection. A severely affected kidney may fail, causing frequent urination or fluid retention.

2. High blood pressure or hypertension

High blood pressure is commonly seen in PKD patients. It occurs when muscles in the arteries expand and contract in abnormal ways, limiting blood flow to certain areas of the body. In this condition, hypertension affects both the circulatory and musculatory systems.

3. Respiratory system

When you suffer from PKD, your kidney often grows to enormous sizes so other organs are often prevented from doing their individual jobs. For example, the kidney keeps the respiratory system from working properly by occupying space needed by the heart and lungs.

4. Other symptoms

PKD can block blood flow to the liver, cause abdominal swelling, enlarged spleen, bleeding from enlarged abdominal blood vessels.

Suggestions to manage PKD

1. Lifestyle and diet changes

Lifestyle and diet changes may be necessary for people with PKD. Diet changes may include a low salt, low protein diet. It is also necessary to take iron and multiple vitamin supplements to the diet. It is recommended that one take short, frequent rest periods during the day.

2. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a new development on traditional Chinese medicine. This therapy is used externally and two medicated bags are put under the lower back of PKD patients. Osmosis device helps the active ingredients in Chinese medicines come to kidney lesion directly. Through increasing permeability of cystic wall, expand blood vessels and improve blood circulation. In addition, Chinese herbs can drain cystic fluid naturally. As long as cysts do not get enough cystic fluid, they will stop growing. Then, further kidney damage will be avoided. Thus, damage on other body systems will be avoided as well.
