Swelling Hands and PKD: Causes and TreatmentPKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) is an inherited kidney disorder which is characterized by countless cysts in bilateral kidneys. With the development of illness condition, various symptoms will appear on patients. Swelling hands are one of the common symptoms in PKD.

The causes of swelling hands for PKD patients

Swelling hands in PKD are associated with kidney damage and decline of renal function. Healthy kidneys can filter out wastes and extra fluid from the body to keep blood clean. However, for PKD patients, the cysts will increase ceaselessly in size and number if they don’t have a timely and effective treatment. What’s more, as more and more renal cysts appear, they will oppress kidney tissues and kidney inherent cells, resulting in kidney ischemia and anoxia. Once kidney tissues can not get enough oxygen and nutrients supply, the nephrons will become scarred, and there is a marked decline in kidney function. As PKD patients’ kidneys cannot work normally, high levels of fluid will build up in the body, resulting in fluid retention. That’s why swelling hands occur in PKD.

The treatment of swelling hands for PKD patients

Diuretic

Diuretic is usually used to treat fluid retention in the body. It can increase the urine output to relieve swelling. However, it just makes a difference in a short time, and it cannot completely eliminate swelling from the root.

Healthy life style

Healthy life style plays a part in controlling swelling hands. PKD patients should avoid overwork. For example, a long-time stand will increase the degree of swelling.

Surgeries

Surgeries for PKD include cyst aspiration, decortication, etc. In fact, they are only suitable for eliminating a large or signal cyst. Surgeries cannot solve the root problem and they have some injuries and risks to the patients.

Chinese medicine therapy

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an alternative treatment for PKD patients. It is a creation based on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). The active ingredients of Chinese medicine can permeate into kidney lesions. Renal cysts can be shrunk, renal damage can be repaired and renal function can be improved. If PKD patients can be treated with this therapy in the early stage, it is easy to control and eliminate swelling.

What mentioned above, Medicate Bath, Acupuncture, and Blood Pollution Therapy are available for treating PKD.
