Which Organs Are Affected By Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

2015-12-12 02:40

Which Organs Are Affected By Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a systemic disorder that affects many body organs besides the kidneys. Well then, which other organs will be affected by PKD?

During an ultrasound or other imaging test, doctors do not just look at the kidneys; they also look at the liver and every other organ within the abdomen. The following organs may be affected by PKD:

1. Pancreas

PKD can cause cysts on the pancreas. Most of them are benign, but some of them are not. Also they may be diverticula in the intestines and sometimes they can perforate and cause problems.

2. Brain

People with PKD also have a higher risk for brain aneurysms, which are weaknesses in the blood vessels in the brain that could burst.

3. Heart

PKD can also cause some heart-related problems, including high blood pressure and heart value abnormalities. If PKD affects the heart, the values can become weak, resulting in a heart murmur in some people.

If you have PKD, or have a family history of the disease, see your doctor immediately.

Is there any cure for PKD?

PKD is a genetic kidney disease and there is no effective way to treat it completely. However, there is still something that can be done to control PKD effectively. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there is a Chinese medicine treatment called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which has been proven to be effective in treating PKD. This therapy treats PKD mainly by performing four functions: anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, dilating blood vessels and degrading extracellular matrix. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy not only stops small kidney cysts from enlarging, but also shrinking kidney cysts so as to alleviate back pain and other related symptoms as well as reduce damages on other organs. It treats PKD from the root.

In Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, all the Chinese herbs are used externally not orally so it is a harmless treatment. But based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), it is only available in China now. Thus, if you happen to be a PKD patient, you have to come to China for treatment.
