Is Kidney Transplant A Good Choice for PKD PatientsKidney transplant is often needed when kidney disease reaches the end stage when the kidneys can not filter the waste and extra fluid from the blood. For some kidney patients, such as FSGS patients and IgA Nephropathy, kidney transplant is not recommended due to their high recurrence rate. While for some kidney patients, kidney transplant allows them to live a relatively normal life. Is kidney transplant a good choice for PKD patients?

PKD is a kidney disorder characterized by fluid-filled cysts. These cysts become bigger and bigger even you have brought the symptoms under control. With the enlargement of cysts, your kidneys will be damaged and then kidney function will decline. At last, kidney failure occurs. Kidney transplant is to put a healthy kidney into your body and take the place of the damaged kidneys to work. If your PKD has been in the end stage, kidney transplant is a good choice for you, but you should consider your age, complications and some other factors, because they may affect your recovery. Here we recommend a conservative treatment for you.

-Blood purification. Therapies such as medicated bath, foot bath, enema therapy and circle therapy can draw out toxins and improve blood circulation so as to help kidneys repair themselves.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to shrink the cysts. In this therapy, there are many kinds of herbs. Some can inhibit the proliferation of renal tubule cells and secretion of lining cells to prevent the growth of cysts. Some can speed up the blood circulation in the cyst wall and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that fluid can be reabsorbed and discharged with blood circulation. In this way, the cysts become small.

-Stem Cell Therapy. Because the dead cells can not bring back to life, Stem Cell Therapy is used. These stem cells can differentiate into the kidney cells to work.

With comprehensive treatment, your kidney function can improve to certain extent and then you can avoid kidney transplant and dialysis. If you have any question, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
