When referring to Brazil, what will you think of? Barbecue? Or foot ball? Today we introduce none of them, but a PKD patient from Brazil. Before leaving hospital, he said: “Nurses and their experts here helped me a lot. They rebuilt my confidence to fight with my disease. Thank you, all my Chinese friends.” Do you want to know more his experience in our hospital? Go on reading.
His name is Petro. When he was 17 years old, he felt soreness and weakness of waist and knees, so he went to hospital for check-up, which showed that he had polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Because his mother is such a patient, his doctor told him that it is inherited. But Petro did not attach importance.
Later he went to hospital for check-up again, this time he had high blood pressure and his creatinine was 270 umol/L. He told us that there are no good therapies in his country, but to take hypertensive medicine to lower blood pressure. When kidney failure occurs, dialysis is started to maintain life. His mother was treated like that. But he did not want that, so he searched on Internet to look for better treatment. At last, he came to our hospital.
When he arrived, he was checked blood pressure, kidney function and did color Doppler ultrasound. We found that both his kidneys have kidney cysts and stones. His creatinine level was 303 umol/L. Besides, he felt very tired and he had enlarged abdomen.
The reason why his blood pressure is high is that the cysts suppress the normal kidney tissues, leading to renal ischemia, anoxia and hypoperfusion.
If high blood pressure can not be controlled timely, it will increase further, causing further kidney damage, renal fibrosis and increased serum creatinine level, while worsened disease can elevate blood pressure further, leading to enlarged heart and heart failure. For some patients, their disorder develops quickly, leading to kidney failure or even uremia.
That is also why their blood pressure can not lower even with hypertensive medicines.
For his disease, on one hand, we used hypertensive medicine to control blood pressure. On the other hand, we used our characteristic Chinese medicine treatment, such as foot bath, medicated bath, oral Chinese medicine, etc. They can help improve renal environment to provide a good basis for medication. They can also expel waste products out of body.
After a period of treatment, Petro can eat by himself, and he did not feel tired any more. Besides, he can sleep through night. After examination, we found that his anemia associated symptoms disappeared. His creatinine level also decreased. Besides, his blood pressure stabilized gradually.
Now his condition became better and better, he said: “ I am very lucky to meet Dr.Yang. It is him that let me know there is a good treatment in China, which can shrink kidney cysts and restore kidney function.”
