May be all of us think holding-back urine is a tiny problem, and most of us will often neglect it. However, as for the patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), it has great influence on Polycystic Kidney Disease. It seems that there is no relationship between PKD and holding-back urine from the angle of physiology. But according to many years of observation and subtle investigations of doctors and nurses, holding-back urine has subtle connection with PKD, especially for the patients at the range of 10-20 years old. If you often hold back urine, there will have the phenomenon of urine reflux, of course this is rare to happen, but it has great impact on kidney and it is estimated that reflux has short impact on cysts. In addition, when urinating, it stops suddenly by outside influence. The occurrence of this phenomenon is because of bladder contraction, the sudden stop of urine lead to great backflow force which can also influence kidney. In a word, hold back urine is not a good habit. Patients of PKD should pay attention to this habit and drink more water. It is good for metabolizing toxins and then filtrating and discharging.
Experts remind the patients of PKD that, in addition to the proper and timely
treatment, good habit and diet of daily life are also of great importance for
patients' condition. Because PKD is a type of genetic kidney disease, which
means that patients of PKD are accompanied by this disease after their birth.
But most cases of this disease do not attack until to the thirty to sixty years
old. The attack of PKD is the result of both genetic factor and external
factors. And genetic factors won't affect the health of patients without the
stimulation of external factors. Therefore, patients of PKD must pay great
attention to the external factors, including habit of daily life, diets,
injuries, tiredness and infections and etc.
