2016-12-21 07:19

Ways to Prevent Cysts from Growing for PKD PatientsFor Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients, the growing cysts are big problems, because they do not only cause kidney damage, but also oppress other organs around. Here I list some ways to prevent cysts from growing for PKD patients. Hope they can help you.

-Avoid dehydration

A chemical called cyclic AMP (cAMP) has been shown to promote growth of cysts. In your kidneys, cAMP is produced in response to a hormone vasopressin, which is produced by the brain in response to not having enough water. Thus avoiding dehydration is thought to be prudent.

-Vitamin B3

Some researches showed that vitamin B3 could decrease PKD cyst formation and restore kidney function, because it can help inhibit the activity of a protein that influence the formation and growth of cysts. Hence you can supplement moderate vitamin B3 according to your conditions. Besides medications, you can take in it by some foods, such as avocados, leafy vegetables, asparagus, kale, cauliflower, etc.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This is an innovation of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is to use osmosis devices to infiltrate the micronized herbs into damaged kidneys directly. It can inhibit the abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and secretion of lining cells so as to stop the growth of cysts. It can also speed up blood circulation and increase pressure inside and outside of cyst wall so that cyst fluid can be taken away from cysts, and then cysts will become small. After about one month’s treatment, your cysts will shrink gradually. If you combine it with other Chinese medicine therapies, such as Medicated Foot Bath, Medicated Full Bath, Circle Therapy, Moxibustion, Navel Therapy and so on, you will achieve a better effect. And it is even possible for you to promote kidney function.

The above ways are general guidance to prevent cysts from growing. If you would like to get some specific suggestions on PKD treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor. We will try our best to help you.
