Top 5 Effective Polycystic Kidney Disease TreatmentsTreatments of Polycystic Kidney Disease are searched online many times a day. But you should know that there is no cure for PKD. However, some treatments are available to prevent PKD complications from occurring and worsening to protect the remaining kidney functions from being further damaged, which is the key point of the treatments for PKD.

Currently, the treatments of PKD are generally divided into five options:

A. Routine examination:PKD is an inherited disease and most people have no developing signs or symptoms of PKD until they are 25 to 35 and some of them don’t feel uncomfortable until kidney failure. Thereby, those who have a family history of PKD are suggested to take a routine examination in the hospital. The currently used technologies such as B-ultrasonic wave, CT and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) can make a diagnosis of PKD. Both the levels of Scr ( Serum Creatinine ) and BUN ( Blood Urea Nitrogen ) can reflect the damaged degree of kidneys and the developmental stage of illness.

B. Medical or surgical treatment: Firstly, medical treatment is mainly for PKD complications, like high blood pressure, urinary tract infection and cyst rupture. Before you take the medicine, you should make sure there are no toxin and side effects to kidneys. Next, surgical treatments include aspiration and Renal Cyst Decortication, which work through shrink the cysts. However, the surgical treatments only provide temporary relief and are tended to have side effects.

C. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: Chinese medicines have a fairly wonderful effects on PKD, especially Miro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It overcomes the disadvantage of surgical treatment, that is, although a surgy can prevent big cysts compressing renal parenchyma, it makes small cysts rapidly enlarge due to the decreased pressure after big cysts are removed. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy plays a role from two aspects: firstly, dilate blood vessels to increase blood circulation and permeability of cyst walls, thus lowering internal pressure of cyst. So cyst fluid will be reabsorbed by blood vessels. Secondly, the active ingredients inhibit epithelial cells on cyst walls from further secreting.

D. Diet and Exercise: PKD patients should keep good mood and positive attitude. Proper exercise is viable but you should prevent waist from being squeezed and crashed. In the case of diet, offal products, high-protein food, fermented foods,chocolate are forbidden for PKD patients and foods with rich cranberry is good. The intake of potassium is large in the early stage and is changed to small amount in the late stage of PKD.

E. CRRT: For PKD patients who are in late stage, losing most or all kidney functions, CRRT is adopted. For those with massive blood or uncontrollable high blood pressure, a surgery to remove the kidney is considerable. Conditions permitted, kidney transplant is OK.

The most important thing is confidence to conquer the disease. If only you receive correct and reasonable treatments, you can also improve your life quality and extend the length of life.
