Treatment for PKD with High Blood Pressure And Low GFR

2014-01-07 10:25

PKD is a genetic progressive kidney disorder.As renal function declines,high blood pressure and low GFR will result.This article will introduce the treatment for PKD with high blood pressure and low GFR.

High blood pressure in PKD

High blood pressure is an early sign of kidney damage in PKD.It is also a significant accelerator in worsening renal function.As the cysts enlarge,they will cause pressure against the adjacent nephrons,leading to renal ischemia and anoxia.The diseased kidneys will produce more renin,a hormone which can contract blood vessels.Hence,high blood pressure will result.High blood pressure can cause extra strain on the small blood vessels in kidneys,thus accelerating renal function decline.

Low GFR in PKD

GFR measures how much blood is filtered by glomeruli each minute.Glomeruli are the basic functional units in kidneys.As the enlarged cysts replace more and more nephrons,the number of healthy glomeruli will reduce drastically.As a result,less blood is filtered by glomeruli.Low GFR will be the result.

Treatment for PKD with high blood pressure and low GFR

The conservative treatments for PKD mainly include medications for high blood pressure,pain relief etc.However, those medications alone can not stop the cyst enlargement and renal function decline.

The numerous enlarging cysts in both of kidneys are the root causes of kidney damage and symptoms of PKD including high blood pressure and low GFR.Therefore,to control PKD fundamentally,the patients should have a treatment to shrink the large cysts and stop the small ones from enlarging.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is a recommended treatment for PKD with high blood pressure and low GFR.This is an externally applied therapy based on traditional Chinese herbal medicines.The effective medicines can shrink the cysts by increasing the removal of cystic fluid. On the other hand, the medicines can inactivate the lining cells on cysts wall to stop them from producing fluid further.What’s more,the osmotherapy can stimulate the regeneration and self-repairing of kidney tissues and cells. When the number of healthy nephrons increases, renal function will be improved remarkably.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can treat PKD effectively. Low GFR will be improved and GFR will be lowered fundamentally.
