Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disease. Cysts in patient’s kidney grow gradually, and they can damage patient’s kidney structure, which will lead to kidney failure eventually. And PKD patient may have this curiosity: What are the treatments for PKD?
It is worth mentioning that patient should not ignore the effect of diet and life habit, which can provide great help in treating and relieving this disease, especially when patient is in the early stage of PKD. In addition to this, there are some therapies that are useful in treating PKD.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy
This therapy is a combination of advanced medical technology and traditional Chinese medicine, and this therapy is especially effective when patient’s cysts are small.
In western medicine, doctor may leave the cysts alone when they are small, because they can not harm patient’s kidney in this stage. But in Chinese medicine, we can use Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to treating patient’s cyst. The effective ingredients of traditional Chinese medicine can inactivate the epithelial cells of kidney cyst, which can inhibit its growth. On the other hand, this therapy can also improve patient’s blood circulation, which can promote the absorption of blood vessel to cyst fluid, so the cyst can be shrunk.
Besides, PKD is a genetic disease, this therapy can slow down the progression of PKD effectively, but it can not cure this disease.
When patient’s cysts grow into a certain size, he will need surgery to relieve his condition, and this is also an effective way to slow down its damage to kidney.
Dialysis and kidney transplant
For patient whose kidney function is damaged severely, he will need dialysis to prolong his lifetime. In fact, dialysis can not stop the growth of kidney cyst, and to change this condition fundamentally, patient needs to accept kidney transplant.
In fact, PKD is a huge threat to life, and it can not be cured, but it progresses slowly, so patient needs to do his best to slow down its progression.
