What Sports Are Good For PKD Patients

2015-10-16 09:20

What Sports Are Good For PKD PatientsWhat sports are good for PKD patients? Good exercises for people with PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) includes sports where impact is minimized. Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, because it helps control your blood pressure, protect your heart and kidneys.

Do sports damage my kidneys?

Generally most sports do not affect kidney function. Given the unique nature of ADPKD, where kidneys are enlarged and cysts are easy to burst, there are some simple precautions to take. Contact sports where the kidneys may be traumatized should either be avoided or protective pads should be worn. These types of sports include football, rugby, basketball, hockey and boxing and kickboxing. Horseback riding and cross-country biking are other sports where repetitive impact has caused hematuria or blood in the urine. Some PKD patients develop heart trouble and swollen brain blood vessels or brain aneurysms. So if you experience chest pain or a severe headache during or after exercise, contact your doctor immediately.

What sports are good for PKD patients?

Good sports for PKD include swimming, tennis, rowing, golf, biking and to a lesser extent, jogging or running.

In addition to good exercise, PKD patients also need to take medical treatment. The key treatment for PKD should be Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) but used externally. The active ingredients in Chinese medicines can shrink kidney cysts through increasing the permeability of cystic walls and blocking the fluid supply of cysts. With high permeability of sac walls, more sac fluid will be discharged from the body through blood supply but do not have any supply. After a period of treatment, you will feel your condition is improved.
