Alternative Treatment for PKD Patients on Dialysis

2014-01-24 14:27

PKD is a genetic disease. As there is no a cure for it, many patients will develop kidney failure and have to depend on dialysis to stay alive. However, dialysis is very excruciating. Is there an alternative treatment for PKD patients on dialysis?

Kidney Failure in PKD

Each kidney is composed of around one million nephrons. Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys and they can filter out waste products from blood normally.

In PKD, numerous cysts grow in kidneys. With age, the cysts will increase in both size and number. With the disease progression, the nephrons will replace more and more healthy nephrons, causing scarring of kidney tissues. In kidney failure, nearly all nephrons become impaired and even necrotic.

While Dialysis can help keep the patients alive by eliminating waste products from blood, it is not a cure.

Alternative treatment to PKD patients on dialysis

To help PKD patients get rid of dialysis, the patients should have a treatment to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function.

As the enlarged cysts are the culprit of renal function decline, the first treatment step is to shrink the large cysts in kidneys. After the large cysts are shrunk, they will make room for the growth of new renal cells.

The following treatment is to restore the impaired nephrons to enhance renal function. If the function of the native kidneys can be improved in PKD, dialysis will not be required.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can help the patients attain the above treatment goals. This is an external application of Chinese herbal medicine. The effective medicine ingredients can activate the self-repairing of the kidney tissues and cells. When the damage to kidney structure is reversed, the patients will be able to get rid of dialysis.
