Polycystic kidney disease
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is characterized by multiple cysts in kidneys. With age, the cysts keep increasing persistently in both size and number, thus leading to swollen kidney. Adults with autosomal dominant PKD experience the onset of symptoms after 30 years of age. Symptoms include high blood pressure, back pain, etc. As 60% of patients will develop Kidney Failure by age 60, it is important for the patients to seek aggressive treatment early enough.
There are main reasons such as hydronephrosis and Vesicoureteral reflux
Hydronephrosis mainly occurs in the following conditions:
There is a blockage somewhere in the urinary tract, the normal working of the bladder is disrupted which causes urine to flow back from the bladder and into the kidney.
As the urine can not be filtered normally from body, it can cause swollen kidney. If it is left untreated; Vesicoureteral reflux is a common cause of enlarged kidney. It refers to abnormal flow of urine from the bladder back to kidney tubules. The secondary form of this condition happens when a blockage results from a bladder infection that causes kidney and bladder swelling.
Herbal medicine is applied externally to work to expand the blood vessels, improve the blood circulation, enhancing the blood and oxygen supply to the kidneys, thus restoring the overall renal function over time. It is good for PKD patients.
