2014-10-05 03:47

How Effective Is Chinese Medicine for PKD PatientsPKD is a genetic disease. So far there has been no cure for PKD. Western medicine can help you control the symptoms effectively, but it can not stop the growth of cysts. Recently Chinese medicine is widely recognized by PKD patients. How effective is Chinese medicine for PKD patients?

Relatively speaking, Chinese medicine takes effect slower than western medicine, but it is really effective in treating PKD. You should have enough patient and confidence to fight against it. Chinese medicine includes oral Chinese medicine and external therapies. Combined internal and external therapy shows good curative effect.

Control the growth of cysts

The reason why cysts keep growing is because of the proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of lining cells. After years of research, we find that some Chinese medicine can inhibit the proliferation of secretion. There are also some Chinese medicine that can speed up the the blood circulation in cyst wall, increase the permeability of cyst wall and decrease the pressure difference between the cyst wall so that cyst fluid can be reabsorbed and discharged out of the body with blood circulation. In this way, the cysts stop growing and become small.

Repair the damaged kidneys

Chinese medicine can also help kidney repair themselves. Some medicine can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough oxygen and nutrients. Some medicine can eliminate deposited immune complexes from kidneys to relieve inflammation and reduce damage. Some medicine can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Moreover, some can supplement vitamins, trace elements and amino acids and so on to speed up the recovery of injured renal cells.

With systemic treatment, you can live very well with PKD, even though there are still cysts in the kidneys. Because cysts less than 3 cm do not affect kidney function. Early treatment for PKD is needed. The bigger the cysts, the more difficult the treatment.
