Should Young People with PKD and High Creatinine Start Dialysis2013-05-09 17:12
My husband, 36 years old, was diagnosed with PKD, but he is already on dialysis now. He has never had any symptoms. The reason why the doctor suggests him to go through dialysis is that he have a high creatinine level. Should young people with PKD and high creatinine start dialysis? How to stop his PKD from progressing so quickly?
The doctor's answer: Generally, young people with PKD don’t need dialysis, because Polycystic Kidney Disease is a chronically progressive condition where the kidneys don’t fail at once, that is to say, patients with PKD can live without any symptoms for many years. Most of these patients are recommended to begin dialysis by age 60, while your husband is only 36 years old. What’s more, he only has high creatinine level but no other symptoms, so dialysis isn’t the best choice for him.
We know dialysis is a life-extending therapy for people with kidney disease, but it can only help remove wastes from the body but not do anything to repair damaged kidney function. To stop your husband’s kidney function from declining, shrinking kidney cysts and protecting kidney function treatments are needed.
However, at present no effective treatment in western medicine can help achieve this goal, so more and more kidney experts turn their focus to herbal medicines. Fortunately, some herbal medicines have proven to have a big and effective benefit of shrinking kidney cysts and protecting the remaining kidney function. The safety and effect of these herbal medicines have been ensured after hundreds of tests. Now, we call this treatment using these herbal medicines Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
In recent years, more and more patients with PKD prefer to use this treatment to shrink their kidney cysts and improve their kidney function. Once their kidney function is improved, high creatinine level will be lowered naturally and dialysis will be avoided, too.
