PKD is one condition that progresses chronically. In the early stage, all PKD renal cysts are small and under the capacity of kidneys, so no symptoms appear to remind of kidney damage. However, with the growth of these cysts, they will cause the decline of kidney function by replacing kidney normal tissues. Then, the following conditions may lead to skin itching.
High phosphorus level
Healthy kidneys are responsible for keeping calcium and phosphorus balance, but this balance is ruined easily in kidney disease as well as PKD. When calcium and phosphorus combine, they will form crystals that build up in the skin to irritate nerves and lead to itching.
The deposition of uremic toxins
Just as phosphorus build up, more and more uremic toxins will deposit in the body with the decline of kidney function. Then, some of them attack the nerve endings in the skin, resulting in tormenting itching.
