Would Polycystic Kidney Disease Lead to Glomerulonephritis
Some patients are unfortunately affected by two types of kidney diseases. One patient told me he has polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and glomerulonephritis simultaneously. He want to know whether polycystic kidney disease lead to glomerulonephritis. How treat polycystic kidney disease (PKD) accompanied by glomerulonephritis?
Our experts give the correct answer that there is no obvious relationship between polycystic kidney disease and glomerulonephritis. It is known that PKD means that numerous kidney cysts develop in kidney tissues. Along with the growth of cyst, kidney tissues would be stretched and many cells would be dead due to this high pressure. However, it would not lead to renal inflammation in kidneys. So these glomeruli do not die of glomerulonephritis.
Although polycystic kidney disease would not lead to glomerulonephritis directly, it may create a bad internal environment for patients to develop renal inflammation in glomeruli.
PKD is a hereditary disease, so most patients get the disease from her parents. And every glomerular has the faulty gene, so they all may have the risk to develop into cysts. Once cysts are formed, they would continue growing with no effect treatment. Big cysts lead to a high pressure on kidney tissues. High blood pressure, hematuria and other symptoms would occur to make a further damage. Besides, kidney damage would greatly reduce their immunity and the healthy glomeruli are easy to get infected in this bad internal environment.
Could these kidney diseases be treated meanwhile?
Immunotherapy can give a wonderful treatment for kidney diseases, polycystic kidney disease and glomerulonephritis. In immune regulation, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suitable for them.
It can turn the lining cells of cysts to normal, so they would not continue to secret cyst fluid and produce more lining cells. Furthermore, Chinese herbs can dilate blood vessels and accelerate the microcirculation so as to increase the pressure difference. So the cyst fluid can pass through the cyst membrane to surrounding tiny blood vessels and would be discharged through urine.
What is more, Chinese herbs can greatly balance immune system, so the renal inflammation in glomeruli can be put down. Glomerulonephritis also can be gradually restored. If you are troubled by these kidney diseases, you can have a try to adopt immunotherapy.
