Is There Any Possibility to Transplant Kidney to Polycystic Kidney Disease PatientsPolycystic Kidney Disease is also known as PKD. It causes numerous cysts to grow in the kidneys. Those kidney cysts are destructive, which can make your kidney function decline gradually. At last, kidney failure occurs. Is there any possibility to transplant a kidney to PKD patients?

Besides dialysis, kidney transplant is the most common used treatment for kidney failure. But it is not recommended if your PKD is still in the early stage, because your kidneys can still maintain the normal function of your body. It is only when your PKD develops to end stage that you can prepare for a transplant. But kidney transplant is not available to all patients, because it usually takes a lot of money. Even if you can afford the expenditure, it is difficult to find a suitable kidney source. After kidney transplant, you have to take immunosuppressants to prevent kidney rejection in the remaining years. Long-term immunosuppressants weakens your immune system and exposes you to various diseases. Therefore, you should take them into consideration before you do transplant.

In the early stage of PKD, there are many ways to help you control PKD, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine. In TCM, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the most common used therapy. This therapy is a conservative treatment. It can inhibit the abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and secretion of cyst fluid so as to stop the growth of cysts. It can also speed up blood circulation in the cyst wall and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that cyst fluid can be taken away from cysts. As a result, cysts become small. When your kidney cysts are small than 3 cm, they do not cause harm for your body.

Is there any possibility to transplant a kidney to PKD patients? Yes. But you had better choose a conservative treatment before kidney failure to protect your kidneys from being damaged. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
