Question: I have Polycystic Kidney Disease that has progressed into stage 4 kidney failure. My latest report shows creatinine 2.64, BUN 46, and microalbumin is 14.5 mg/dl. I have read about osmotherapy. Is it helpful?
Answer: Since your illness condition has progressed into stage 4 kidney failure, it means patients’ kidney cysts have become too large and compressed surrounding kidney tissues and other organs. High creatinine and BUN level indicate the decline of glomerular filtration rate, while microalbumin means damage to glomeruli charge barrier. In view of this, one treatment that can help repair damaged kidney cells and protect kidneys from further damage is helpful.
Osmotherapy is just such one treatment. On one hand, it can help shrink kidney cysts, through increasing the permeability of cystic walls and inhibiting the sac fluid secretion. On the other hand, Osmotherapy is able to increase the blood flow into kidneys and improve the self-curative ability of damaged kidney cells. Therefore, osmotherapy is indeed can help increase kidney function and shrink kidney cysts. As long as kidneys can do their work normally, creatinine level and BUN level will come down naturally. Also, microalbumin in the urine reduces.
