Will PKD Go Away After Kidney TransplantWill Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) go away after kidney transplant? End stage renal disease patients have no choice but to choose kidney transplant. PKD is a progressive and genetic kidney disease. Kidney cysts will enlarge with age and eventually damage kidney tissues and kidney function. At last, end stage renal disease (ESRD) occurs. Well then, will PKD be cured once you take kidney transplant?

Disadvantages of kidney transplant

1. Successful surgery is a prerequisite of kidney transplant. Suitable donor, the speed of kidney removal and doctor’s superb technique are important guarantee of successful operation.

2. Not all patients can do kidney transplant. Patients’ physical condition is the precondition of kidney transplant. To guarantee the success and long term of stability after transplant, uremia patients should first make sure that the primary disease is not in active period and kidney function can not be recovered. In addition, patients should have a good physical condition.

3. As for uremia patients with viral hepatitis, they need to take long-term of anti-rejection medications after kidney transplant. Since immune system is inhibited, they are prone to suffer from active hepatitis and even kidney failure. Under such a condition, patients had better not take kidney transplant.

4. The big problem patients will face after kidney transplant is rejection reaction. Although anti-rejection medications are helpful, they will impact patient’s life quality severely. To make matters worse, once the disease recurs, kidney function will lose gradually and dialysis will be required again. What’s more, long-term of anti-rejection medications will decrease immune system and cause infection, which is the main of cause of kidney transplant patients. Anti-rejection medications can also result in toxicity of kidney and liver, high sugar and osteoporosis.

5. If patients have complications or other underlying diseases, they should choose kidney transplant carefully. Kidney transplant can help patients get rid of dialysis in some sense but cannot treat underlying diseases from the root like diabetes, arteriosclerosis.

6. Ordinary families cannot afford the high cost of kidney transplant. The biggest problem is it is difficult to find the donor.
