How Quickly Does Polycystic Kidney Disease ProgressPKD is an inherited disease and usually has a familial characteristic. Because it can not be cured, it will eventually develop to kidney failure. How quickly does polycystic kidney disease progress? After reading this article, you will find out the answer.

Generally speaking, patients with PKD will have high blood pressure in 30s, high serum creatinine in 40s, and kidney failure in 50s. Because the growth of cysts is very slow in early stage, and small cysts can not cause severe impairment to kidneys, so you usually do not feel any discomforts. With the enlargement of cysts, kidneys can be pressed and fail to work gradually. In that case, you may have back pain, fatigue, blood urine, high blood pressure, enlarged abdomen, etc. Without proper treatment, dialysis and kidney transplant will be your last choice. Therefore, it is important to slow down the progression of the disease in early stage so that it will not develop to kidney failure.

Treatment to slow down the progression of PKD

In western medicine, there has not been any effective treatment yet expect waiting for dialysis and kidney transplant. In Chinese medicine, there are a series of useful therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Cycle Therapy, Moxibustion, etc. Some can inhibit the abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and stop the secretion of lining cells so as to stop the growth of cysts. Some can speed up blood circulation and increase pressure difference inside and outside of renal cysts so that cyst fluid can be taken away, and then cysts shrink. Some can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. Some can expel waste products out of body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. After a period of treatment, your kidney cysts will become small and kidney function will increase.
