2013-09-07 17:02

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is very hared to manage. It is featured with multiple cysts in both of kidneys.When the kidneys fail, dialysis will have to be required. How to delay the onset of dialysis in PKD?

How does kidney failure occur in PKD?

In PKD,there is a large number of cysts in both of kidneys.With age,the cysts will increase in both size and number.More and more enlarged cysts will replace more and more healthy kidney tissues,thus resulting in progressive renal function decline. When a large part of kidney tissues are impaired, the kidney will fail to function adequately, thus resulting in Kidney Failure. When kidneys fail to perform properly, Dialysis will be needed.

How to delay the onset of dialysis in PKD?

Firstly,it is important for the patients to control the accelerators of renal function deterioration.High blood pressure is the first sign of kidney damage in PKD and also can worsen renal function significantly. Therefore, it is important to control high blood pressure.

Secondly, kidney stone, urinary tract infection (UTI) also can deteriorate renal function.Control these conditions can help preserve renal function.

The above treatments can slow renal function decline and delay the onst of dialysis.

However,as mentioned above,Kidney Failure in PKD results from enlarged kidney cysts.Therefore,to help the patients avoid developing kidney failure and the onset of dialysis, the primary goal of treatment is to stop the cysts from enlarging and shrinking the enlarged ones.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is a recommended treatment for PKD.Firstly,the effective medicines can stop the increase production of cystic fluid by killing the epithelial cells on cyst wall. Secondly, by improving permeability of cyst wall and microcirculation, the cystic fluid will be filtered out of cysts. Therefore, the enlarged cysts will shrink. If the large cysts stop causing pressure against kidney tissues, renal function will stop declining. Dialysis will not be required at all.
