Kidney is a bean-shaped organ, which is located in in the back of abdomen. In general, the normal kidney size is 9-13 cm or 4-5 inches long, about the size of a fist.

And they may also raise your blood pressure higher and higher, leading to heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, prompt and effective treatment is needed to shrink the kidneys.

Treatment to shrink the kidneys

When kidneys are big enough, surgery is not a good way to shrink the cysts, because once the big cysts are removed, the small one will grow up quickly. And surgery can not shrink the cysts which grow inside the kidneys. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there is a series of treatment, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicated Full Bath, Enema Therapy, Circle Therapy, various medicinal soup, etc. Some of them can increase the permeability of cyst wall and the pressure difference between inside and outside and speed up blood circulation so that cyst fluid can be taken away from cysts. And then the size of cysts become small. Some can inhibit abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and stop the secretion of lining cells so as to cease the growth of cysts. Some can draw toxins out of the blood to reduce their damage to your body. Some can dilate blood vessels to lower blood pressure. Some can inhibit kidney inflammation. Some can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing.

After a short-period of treatment, there is improvement in symptoms, for example, back pain will alleviate, appetite will improve, sleeping quality will become good, etc. After a long-period of treatment, the size of kidneys will become small and your kidney function will also be promoted.
