Many people are diagnosed with a nephrotic syndrome unintentionally in a physical examination. They cannot believe that they have kidney disease for they have a normal life like other healthy people and they have no obvious symptoms. But nephrotic syndrome is fatal for people and they may have renal failure.
Nephrotic syndrome is a condition marked by very high levels of protein in the urine, low levels of protein in the blood, possible severe swelling and high cholesterol in the blood. Although they may have all of these differences in their body, the only symptom they can find is the swelling. In the early stage, they only have swelling in around the eyes and then feet and hands. So people easily ignore it and kidney would be hurt further.
Late detection is always the major cause of worsening of nephrotic syndrome. When they realize the severe swelling in legs or arms, most of them are in the serious stage. Nephrotic syndrome results from damage to the kidneys’ glomeruli that are little balls of tiny blood vessels and are used to filter waste, salts as well as excess water from the blood. When glomeruli are hurt, protein in the blood is easily leaked out.
Nephrotic syndrome is usually caused by many diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, lupus, purpura, hepatitis, amyloidosis as well as kidney disease. So treatment of nephrotic syndrome focuses on identifying the underlying cause. Most of the cases are the results of kidney diseases with no exact illness causes. So most of patients cannot be cured by adopting traditional treatments.
In this situation, Immunotherapy can help you to solve the underlying problems. More than 95% of nephrotic syndrome cases are aroused by a disordered immune system. People need to regulate immune system and improve immunity in order to put off the renal inflammation. In order to balance immune system, accurate examinations should be adopted to check out why their immune system is wrong. In immunotherapy, Micro-Chinese medicine Osmotherapy is the main therapy for them to achieve a normal immune system. Besides, it also can give essential elements to promote the growth of kidney tissues.
So through immunotherapy you can find the causes of your nephrotic syndrome. It also focuses on the lesion on kidneys and treats underlying disease from the root.
Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic kidney disease in which the kidneys, including cortex and medulla, are filled with cysts. Nearly half of patients with this disease will experience high blood pressure. This disease can be divided into two types according to the mode of inheritance. One is autosomal dominant inheritance and the other is autosomal recessive inheritance. Autosomal dominant inheritance is also called adult polycystic kidney disease since its symptoms do not occur until being adult. Autosomal recessive inheritance is also named baby polycystic kidney disease because its symptoms have obvious performance in the childhood. However, baby polycystic kidney disease is rare to see in clinic for the patient with this disease often lose life several days or even several hoursafter after birth, the patient whose disease is mild can live to baby period, childhood period, but living to adulthood is hardly to be found. Due to the little percent of baby polycystic kidney disease take, we mainly talk about autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD).
Epidemiology and inheritance of polycystic kidney disease
ADPKD is easy to be found in clinic and there are one out of 500 to 1000 people may get this disease and it takes account for 5%-10% in the end stage of kidney disease. ADPKD follows the regular autosomal dominant inherence, that is, male and female have the same chance to get this disease; the child gets half chance to get this disease if either mother or father got this disease and 75% chance if both parent got this disease; the child who do not get this disease marry another person who is also without this disease, then their child will not suffer this disease.
Pathology of polycystic kidney disease
Both the kidneys will be enlarged, and the average of each kidney weighs 500 to 1000g. The biggest kidneys can weigh as much as 4000g. Various sizes of cysts in cortex and medulla are presented on the section of kidney. There may be various shapes of cysts, including spherical cysts, cylindrical cysts and diamond cysts. The size of cysts ranks from 0.1cm to several centimeters. The cyst wall is epithelial cells and what is inside the cyst is fluid whose looks vary from clear to red color. Normal renal tissues can be seen in the space between cysts. Renal cysts come from conducting tube, renal capsule or part segment of renal tube and also connect with them.
Clinical manifestations of polycystic kidney disease
The size of kidneys is normal or slightly bigger than the normal when the patient in childhood and small cysts can be found occasionally. With the age increasing, the number and size of renal cysts also gradually becomes larger and larger however, this process is so slowly that most patients do not have symptoms until they are 30 years old when the kidneys and cysts grows big. There are also some patients who discovered the cysts in childhood when the cysts are obvious. It is also occur to other patients to find the renal cysts occasionally when they are old. The main manifestations of this disease are pain in the waist or abdomen; hematuria and proteinuria; enlarged kidneys; high blood pressure; nocturia.
When polycystic kidney disease develops, it will finally lead to kidney failure, and many symptoms will appear at the same time. Renal anemia is one of the most common symptoms among all.
When the kidney function begins to decline, the Erythropoietin (EPO) secreted by the kidneys in the patients decreases, and will not meet the needs of the body, and this is one of the causes of anemia. Besides, in kidney failure patients of PKD, there are lots of toxins deposited in the body, which reduces the life span of the red blood cells. The other reasons are as follows:
Kidney failure patients may not be able to take enough nutritions, vitamins, proteins, Iron etc.
Dialysis may take away some blood, or frequent blood tests
Renal anemia may go with the renal impairment degree. For treatment of renal anemia, of course the first is to treat the kidney problem. Let the kidneys secrete more Epo so it can meet the needs of the body. For kidney failure caused by pkd, the kidney function can be improved by shrinking the cysts, reduce the pressure caused by the enlarging cysts, and repair the damaged kidney cells. The recommended treatment for it is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
R-HuEPO injection: after the injection, patient's hemoglobin can be obviously increased, and anemia get improved.
Supplements of nutrition
Blood transfusion, it can correct anemia in a short time, but for some patients, blood transfusion may increase the risk for infection, or other responses, so the doctors need to check the patient's condition, and choose the right methods to correct anemia.
Different conditions may need different treatments, so before any action, do ask for your doctors suggestions.

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disorder in which numerous kidney cysts growing from the kidneys and damaging the kidney tissues. Polycystic Kidney Disease develops faster in one’s 30s and 40s. If untreated immediately, it may lead to End Stage of Renal Disease.
End Stage of Renal Disease is the final ends of all kidney disease. In this condition, your kidneys fail to function enough, leading to toxins build-up in your body. When PKD develops into End Stage of Kidney Disease, many people have to search for the donated kidneys for a transplant.
Kidney transplant is expected to replace one of the cysts-filled kidneys, leading a longer life. Compared with dialysis, transplant is considered as a better choice for dialysis hardly is cast off.
However, as the number of donated kidneys is limited, many PKD patients who registered on the waiting list pass away before they get the donated organ.
In fact, besides transplant, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Immunotherapy are recommended to prevent PKD from end stage of kidney failure.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is an herbal remedy which is composed of natural herbs which can accelerate blood circulation, eliminate inflammation and shrink renal cysts naturally. Besides, it is designed to add the tonic herbs to repair the damaged renal tissues and refresh the poor kidney functions.
Except control renal cysts and kidney function improvement, the herbal remedy is expected to make an all-sided improvement in PKD patients. The other effects of Traditional Chinese Medicine include:
High blood pressure dropping
Urine change of color and volume
Less protein leakage into the urine
In Kidney Disease Hospital, not every patient with PKD needs the treatment of Immunotherapy.
Immunotherapy treatment is used in patients whose kidney functions are less than 30%, especially the patient who develops in kidney failure stage. Immunotherapy are primary cells. Under right condition, Immunotherapy will differentiate into desired type of cells. Thereby, nephrologists use Immunotherapy to replace the dead kidney tissues and cells, in order to improve declined kidney functions.
When renal cysts are controlled and kidney functions are improved, surely patients with PKD can stay far away from kidney transplant or end stage of renal disease.
If you are diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease and have not got the donated organ by far, we are glad to help you.
Polycystic nephritis results from PKD genes or genic mutation. Generally speaking, if your father or mother has the history of PKD, you have 50% possibility to inherit the disease. If your parents suffered from the disease, the morbidity in you will increase to 75%.
Most patients get the disease from heredity and a few patients get it from genic mutation.
What are the symptoms of Polycystic Nephritis?
As renal cysts enlarge in number and in size, kidney damages will lead to some symptoms as sign to warm the patients for immediate treatment.
-protein in urine
-blood in urine
-back pain, flank pain, pain in sides, pain in abdomen
-urinary tract infections
What are the complications of Polycystic Nephrites?
-high blood pressure
-kidney failure (Is Renal Failure Permenant?)
-growth of cysts in the liver
-development of an aneurysm in the brain
-hear valve abnormalities
What are the treatments for Polycystic Nephritis?
● Surgery. Surgery is a common choice for Polycystic Nephritis. Surgery is used to remove the larger cyst to release the pressure to kidney tissues. However, as larger cysts are gone, the smaller ones will develop faster for there is more space to grow up. This therapy surely can not stop the relapse of Polycystic Nephritis.
● Traditional Chinese Medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) stops the growth of renal cyst and shrinks the renal cysts naturally. TCM can take effects on lining cell which secretes cyst fluids constantly. TCM is proved to alleviate Polycystic Nephritis in a large degree and leads no relapse. However, the TCM soup tastes bitter which makes many patients feel sick.
● Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the new development of TCM, which grinds the loose herbs super-finely and collect the micro-size powder into medical bag which will be used to hot compress on waist area. With the help of osmosis devices, the ingredients of herbs will permeate into kidney lesions and take effects directly. As this is an external application, it avoids the disadvantages of TCM successfully. Meantime, it takes effects faster than the TCM.
Right treatments differ from condition to condition. Which treatment is suitable for you? You can leave your condition below and get the analysis from our experts via email.
Polycystic Kidney Disease usually is found in one’s 30s, because the cysts are too small in the childhood. In patients’ adulthood, symptoms of PKD become obvious. Alleviations for the symptoms is for your information.
Acupuncture-like treatments had a positive effect overall on people's chronic back pain, It didn't matter if you inserted the needle or superficially poked” says study researcher Dan Cherkin, PhD.
High Blood Pressure
Normally, Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor is likely to prescript you a combination of several herbs for better effects. Besides herbs for high blood pressure, he or she also will take your PKD into consideration and add other herbs for renal health to prescription. Wholism is the basic concept of Chinese Herbal Medicine, it regards the whole body as one unit and never remedy one part at expense of other parts.
Blood in Urine
Hematuria has no specific treatment. Instead, your doctor will focus on treating the underlying condition. This might include, for instance, taking antibiotics to clear a urinary tract infection, trying a prescription medication to shrink an enlarged cysts, or shock wave therapy to break up bladder or kidney stones.
Liver cyst is a common symptom, which is caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease. As the mechanism of cyst on kidneys or on live is the same, your doctors will treat the both disease together and the therapies and drugs are always similar. Herbs are usually used to shrink the cysts both in kidneys and in liver naturally.
Kidney failure refers to the renal functions decline. To improve the kidney functions, Immunotherapy are suggested to generate the new healthy functional cells in kidneys and develop kidney functions.
In fact, the root cause of the symptoms is the enlarged cysts. Thereby, the key is to shrink the cysts and avoid the further damages. As long as renal cysts are small enough, the symptom of PKD will disappear spontaneously.
Kidney cysts resulting from PKD that form in the kidneys and occasionally on the liver can also cause leg pain.
How can patients manage leg pain in PKD?
Medications. Usually, when the pain is mild, the doctor will prescribe some over-the-counter medications to control it.
Surgery. This is recommended for cases who suffer from more severe and constant pain. Surgery is adopted to shrink cysts, and it can also relieve pain. However, patients should be clear that this operation provides only temporary relief and usually fail to prevent the disease's development into Renal Failure.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This is a natural herbal therapy applied externally on the kidney area. Herbal bags containing dozens of herbal medicines are soaked previously in penetrants, and then placed on the lower back part.
With the use of osmosis device, effective ingredients of herbal medicines will infiltrate into kidneys through the main channels. Then, these medicines can take effect to improve the renal blood circulation, shrink the cysts in size gradually, and provide rich nutrients to speed up the process of kidney repair. Once the cysts are shrunk, their pressure to other tissues will be reduced, and the underlying cause of leg pain is eliminated.
Besides, people can make some changes to develop a healthy lifestyle, which include:
▪ Have a good control of blood pressure.
▪ Do not smoke or use tobacco.
▪ Limit how much alcohol you drink.
Polycystic Kidney is one of the leading cause of kidney failure. About 40-50 percent of PKD patients do experience renal failure. If this happens, both of the kidneys may fail, and they are unable to discharge the metabolic products and excess fluid out of the body. As a result, large amount of wastes such as creatinine, urea nitrogen, etc, will build up in the body. Nausea in PKD is associated with elevated levels of urea nitrogen in the blood.
When there is increased BUN levels, the urea in the intestinal tract will be decomposed into ammonia with the help of bacteria. The ammonia will irritate the intestinal mucosa, resulting in the symptom of nausea. Generally, the higher the level of BUN is, the more severe the nausea will be.
Dialysis. Many patients with renal failure adopt dialysis, a process that filter the blood much like a healthy kidney would do. This process can help to remove excess wastes from the blood, thus alleviating the symptom of nausea in PKD. However, dialysis is not a cure for kidney disease, and it is just a temporary amelioration.
Patients with PKD who are suffering from nausea are recommended to find a fundamental treatment method to repair the kidney damage and restore the renal function. Once the kidneys can function normally by themselves, the symptoms will disappear permanently. And the life quality can be significantly improved.

"My age is 46 years old, was diagnosed the presence of Polycystic Kidney size 2cm in both kidneys, creatinine 1.4 (0.4-1.1) and I was told there is no cure for this disease, only treatment of any infections. Is there any cure for my condition in Chinese medicine?"
Polycystic Kidney Disease is genetic. It's true that the disease cannot be fundamentally cured, but it can be well controlled so that you can avoid dialysis or kidney transplant.
You have 2cm cysts in both of your kidneys. The cysts are not big and can still be shrunk by medicine. Your creatinine 1.4 is slightly higher than normal value. This means that you still have much kidney function left. Treated promptly, your disease can still be reversed. So you should be confident to defeat the illness with our mutual endeavor!
What treatment is available in Chinese medicine to help treat Polycystic Kidney effectively? One of these effective therapies is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. Have you heard of traditional Chinese medicine? Conventionally, medicines are taken orally in TCM. Osmotherapy is an innovative form used externally on the back, so it is more convenient and there is no side effect to the human body.
How can Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy take effect to reverse your Polycystic Kidney? Hope the following points can give you a general understand. 1) We use Osmotherapy to expand blood vessels, speed up blood circulation on cyst walls, and improve the permeability of the cysts, thus making the cysts shrink and decrease, until it stops secreting. 2) With decreased internal pressure of the cysts, their sizes will become smaller and smaller gradually, thus decreasing their compression to the surrounding renal tissues. 3) After the cysts disappear, they are not easy to recur. The symptoms of Polycystic Kidney such as blood in the urine, back pain, elevated blood pressure, etc will go away thoroughly.
With the rapid development of medical science, we believe there will be a fundamental cure for PKD in the near future. Don't lose heart. We will try our best to help. Any question? You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Polycystic kidney disease is known as a genetic kidney disease in which numerous fluid-filled cysts develop on the surface or inside the kidneys. If uncontrolled, the disease will develops long term effects for patients.
Will I pass it on my children?
Symptoms and complication
Most people have this disorder without no symptoms or complications until at the age of 30s or 40s. Over a several years, you may suffer from high blood pressure, cyst rupture, sharp back pain, urinary tract infection, kidney stones, enlarged abdomen etc.
Dialysis or kidney transplant
As the cyst fluids keep secreting, the cysts will become larger and larger, which will force the nearby kidney tissues. If the kidney damages can not be controlled well, Polycystic Kidney Disease will develop into kidney failure. In this condition, your doctor may suggest dialysis or kidney transplant.
According to your kidney function and general health condition, you may need to take dialysis 1~4 times per week or even more.
Before kidney transplant, you need register on the waiting list of donated kidneys. Many patients pass away before they get a matched organ.
Having a baby
PKD patients have the right to become parent. However, you should choose a right time according to your kidney condition and general health condition. As enlarged cysts can drop down the kidney functions, you may step into kidney failure stage where you are not suggested to get pregnant. Kidney failure can trigger miscarriage.
For patients with lower kidney functions, Immunotherapy are suggested to generate into new renal cells to develop kidney functions.
Polycystic Kidney Disease brings short effects and long effects on your life. However, all the effects can be dealt well, if you take right treatment and health care.
Autosomal dominant PKD is one of the most common inherited disorders. If one parent has the disease, there is a 50% chance that the disease will pass to a child. At least one parent must have the disorder for a child to inherit it. Many persons with this disease live for decades without presenting symptoms. For this reason, it is often called "Adult PKD". Here, we mainly introduce the reason for bleeding or rupture of cysts from this disease.
Cause of bleeding in Adult PKD
Bleeding or hemorrhage is a much common problems in patients with ADPKD. The volume of bleeding is different from case to case. Over 60% of patients experience once hemorrhage during the whole life.
In this case, there may be no symptoms or merely pain of abdomen when there is a bleeding. Risk factors for this condition include hypertension (high blood pressure) and enlarged kidneys. A severe hemorrhage may also occur due to infections and stress.
Cause of rupture of cysts in Adult PKD
▪ Enlarged cysts. Without effective treatment, the cysts will grow continuously over time. Patients have risk of cysts rupture with large enough cysts.
▪ Smoking cigarette and drinking alcohol. Both of the factors act ac trigger for cysts enlargement, which may cause the burst of cysts.
▪ Cold or infections. They may affects the curative effects of the disease. In severe cases, cysts rupture can be caused.
▪ Constipation. This is a dangerous condition for persons with large renal cysts.
Recognizing the causes of bleeding and rupture of cysts in Adult PKD, we can take measures to prevent and cope with these conditions.
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).
Once you are diagnosed with the disease, you may wonder your exact life expectancy. However, it is hard to answer this question because it is attributable to many factors.
Residual renal function
As ADPKD develops quite latently, you may not present symptoms or discomforts in early stage. As a result, you may do not receive treatment until symptoms appear such as high blood pressure, back pain, high creatinine level etc. Generally speaking, at that time, more than half of your renal function has failed completely. Therefore, if you have a family history of the disease, you should go for tests like B-ultrasound tests regularly.
If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, anemia etc, these problems can aggravate the aggravation of your renal function. Therefore, you should take some measures to deal with them properly. It will be able to prolong your life expectancy to some extent.
After you are diagnosed with ADPKD, you should go to see a dietitian and ask him/her to give you some dietary advices. Meanwhile, you should keep them strictly. Meanwhile, if the cysts enlarge, you should avoid intense exercise and heavy work to prevent cyst rupturing.
Therapy is the primary factor in influencing the life expectancy of ADPKD patients. If you can receive proper treatment to stop the cysts enlargement and restore the impaired nephrons, the kidneys will be able to recover the normal function. So, you will be able to enjoy a normal life expectancy as the common people.
