Polycystic Kidney Disease is a kind of hereditary disease. It should be controlled effectively though its genetic feature can not be eliminated. If PKD can not be controlled effectively in the early stage, it will develop into more serious stage and caused various complications, which is more dangerous for patients’ life.
In early stage, cysts are small and they won’t affect patients’ normal life.
With cysts growing bigger, they will begin to compress surrounding kidney tissue
gradually. Cystic pressure on kidney increases with cysts growing, which can
start the process of Renal Fibrosis—the real cause of kidney injury. Once Renal
Fibrosis involves more than 50% of the whole kidney, kidneys can not maintain
the daily operation normally. If more than 80% kidney is involved by Renal
Fibrosis, this disease begins to develop into End Stage Renal Failure or Uremia
stage which can threaten patients’ life greatly.
Besides this, complications caused by PKD are also dangerous for PKD
patients. During the development of PKD, several serious complications related
with PKD can be caused at the same time. Such complications include
Hypertension, Anemia, Kidney Stone, Polycystic Liver Disease, internal kidney
calcification, urinary tract infection and cyst canceration, etc. Sometimes,
these complications are more serious than the kidney problem itself.
Through the above, it can be found that if PKD can not be controlled
effectively in early stage, it will bring very serious result and influence to
PKD patients. Not only the disease itself, but also its related complications,
can have great threat to patients’ life. For this reason, active and timely
treatment is necessary to be adopted to control the development of this disease,
which is beneficial to delay the process of this disease developing into Uremia
stage and prevent related complications happening.if you need more informatoin
