Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a type of genetic disease which has familial aggregation. Both male and female may have this disease and the probability for them is equal, and several successive generations can have this disease. If either parent has PKD, their children all have 50 percent of probability to have this disease. If both of the parents have this disease, that will increase to 75 percent. Facing so serious genetic law, how can we prevent children from inheriting PKD?
From the standpoint of better birth, the experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney
Disease Hospital have pointed out that PKD heredity can be prevented on the
present medical level. So long as PKD patients pay attention to some
aspects,they can prevent their children from inheriting the disease. Then what
should we do?
Avoid the marriage of couple who both have PKD by premarital check-up.
Through B ultrasonic we can decrease the probability of PKD, which is an aspect
to prevent PKD. However, patients with PKD may marry, so there is another
problem for them--how to prevent their children from inheriting PKD?
The pregnant women with PKD should take a 'cyst gene check-up' in the 10th
week of pregnancy by taking out some amniotic liquid or villus cells as sample.
Family with PKD can choose a healthy baby by the examination of molecular
genetics and this healthy baby won't carry this type of gene and affect his
offspring. Because this disease has the law of 50 percent heredity for those
whose either parent has this disease, patients with PKD must take an examination
during the gestation. It is the most important for them to have a healthy
For treatments of PKD, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital has developed
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy independently, and combines it with the most
advanced nephropathy treatment technology forming the special treatment
technology which has functions of reversing intracapsular pressure, contracting
cysts, repairing and rebuilding renal function. If PKD can be controlled well,
the patients completely can lead a normal life like normal people. If you have
any other questions, please consult our on-line experts. It is very important to
control patient's condition in time and protect renal function.
