What are the clinical symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease? In clinical, waist pain, protein or blood in urine, kidney enlargement, etc, can be found during the developing process of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Nearly all the PKD patients have family history of this disease. Generally no symptoms can be found in the early stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Obvious symptoms often appear after 30 years old and can also be found at the age of 80 to 90 sometimes.
Here is a simple introduction of several common symptoms of Polycystic Kidney
Ⅰ. Kidney Enlargement:
Discomforts on waist and abdomen are common at the beginning. The increase of
renal capsular tension or the pull of renal pedicle vessels and nerves can lead
to dull pain. If bleeding happens in the cyst and the blood clot block the
urethra or infection happens, the pain will be serious suddenly and even cause
Ⅱ. Hematuria: If blood vessels are broken due to the pull, gross hematuria
Ⅲ. Proteinuria: Generally, urine protein is lower than 1g/24hours.
Ⅳ. Hypertension: It is commonly seen and influences the prognosis of the
disease directly. It is related to the pressure from cyst on normal kidney
tissues and causes renal ischemia as well as water and sodium retention.
Ⅴ. Kidney function decline: The damage to kidney may occur to patients who
are over 40 years old and half of the patients over age 59 will lose their
kidney function. This is related to the cystic pressure and is also relevant to
other tissues that have ischemia, sclerosis, inflammation, fibrosis and the high
filtration and high perfusion of the remaining renal tissues.
PKD patients may have one or more symptoms during the disease course and most
patients have to take medicines to control these symptoms. Well then, what is
