Question: My father’s creatinine is 6.0 mg/dl, and doctor suggests him to go for dialysis. He has Polycystic Kidney Disease with paralysis and hypertension, but he refuses dialysis. What can we do?
Answer: Polycystic Kidney Disease is one progressive kidney disorder. With the growth of kidney cysts, they will damage their surrounding kidney tissues. When kidneys can’t do their work properly, waste products and toxins will build up in the blood. Therefore, serum creatinine level increases. Creatinine 6.0 indicates kidneys are damaged severely.
Kidneys consist of numerous blood vessels, so enlarged kidney cysts can damage these blood vessels. Then, less blood can go through kidneys that causes blood pressure to increase easily. For PKD patients, their hypertension may be refractory. Paralysis is usually caused by local ischemia and anoxia that can appear in legs, feet, hands, and some other regions. From this point, we can know the key to deal with your father’s paralysis and hypertension is shrinking kidney cysts and increasing blood flow into kidneys.
Here, you can try Hot Compress Therapy. This therapy can help drain cystic fluid from the body via blood circulation and expand blood vessels all over the body as well as kidneys. Therefore, PKD patients can get improvement gradually. If PKD patients’ illness condition is quite severe, Stem Cell Therapy may be needed. Finally, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients’ paralysis and hypertension can be eased naturally.
