Can A Patient with PKD and A Risk Of Diabetes Drink Alcohol

2015-12-07 03:38

Can A Patient with PKD and A Risk Of Diabetes Drink AlcoholA patient, 20-year-old boy, sent an email to our kidneycares@hotmail.com and said that he was recently diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD), which is acquired from his mother’s side. Everyone on his father’s side has type II diabetes but he does not have it yet. He has never drunk before? Can he drink alcohol?

It is said that by PKD Foundation and American Diabetes Association drinking alcohol in moderation is not dangerous and in fact can have some positive effects on health. But one risk is a chance that alcohol may elevate blood pressure. Do not drink at all if your blood glucose is not under control. Besides, you should keep alcohol intake low to reduce the chance of cardiovascular disease. Doctors do not say you have to cut it out completely. But please do so in moderation.

Aside from paying attention to diet, the most important thing PKD patients should do is to take treatment to shrink kidney cysts. There is no cure for PKD but it does not mean there is no way to control its progression. In order to stop its progression, PKD patients can take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is based on but different from traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used externally and has no side effects. Patients just need to lie on bed to take this treatment. Two medicated bags are placed on patients’ lower back (kidney area) and osmosis device helps the active substances in Chinese medicines come to kidney lesion directly. The active substances in Chinese medicines can shrink kidney cysts safely and efficiently through the functions of promoting blood circulation, declining the ability of secreting fluid of lining cells, increasing the permeability of cystic wall and changing the inner and outer pressure difference of cystic wall. In this way, cystic fluid will be reabsorbed and removed out of body with urine. What’s more, Micro-Chinese medicine Osmotherapy can also supply some nutrients for kidneys. Then, kidney damage will be repaired gradually and kidney function will be improved as well.

If you have any question or doubt about our Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, you can send an email to kidneycares@hotmail.com. We will try our best to help you.
