Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a kind of congenital Kidney Disease, always involving bilateral kidneys. If patients accept proper treatment that can control cysts growth and prevent this disease developing into Renal Failure and Uremia, patients can have a longer life, living healthily as other normal people, even if they are suffering from Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). Well then, how to treat this disease?
Both Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine have their own methods to treat
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).
Ⅰ. Operation in Western Medicine
Firstly, Cyst Decortication: this operation can reduce the pressure on renal
parenchyma caused by cysts and prevent majority remained nephrons being
compressed and damaged further, which can relieve the condition of renal
ischemia and anoxia. Through this way, part of nephrons can be recovered,
delaying the process of disease developing. The key of a successful operation is
to take this operation as early as possible. Cysts, including small cysts and
cysts located in deep kidney, must be decorticated completely. Both kidneys
should be operated, with interval period of more than half year during the two
operations. If End Stage PKD patients who get renal function injury are
suffering from Azotemia or Uremia, no matter they get High Blood Pressure or
not, Cyst Decortication has little effect at this moment. Contrarily, this
operation can worsen illness condition.
Secondly, Dialysis and Kidney Transplant: once PKD develops into End Stage
Renal Failure, patients should be given Dialysis treatment immediately.
Hemodialysis is the first choice due to enlarged kidneys which nearly occupy the
whole abdominal cavity. As for Kidney Transplant, the survival rate of
Polycystic Kidney Disease is almost equal to this operation on other Kidney
Diseases. However, complicated disease at the same time has increased the
difficulties of post-operation nursing, which affects the effect of Kidney
Ⅱ. Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment and Characteristic Chinese Medicine
Firstly, Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment: presently, Chinese Medicine
adopts conventional treatment, orally Chinese Medicine, to treat Polycystic
Kidney Disease, which has gained a good effect. Based on the opinion of wholism
and choosing treatment according to syndrome differentiation, Chinese Medicine
considers that PKD is the result of interaction of both internal factors and
external factors. Though Chinese Medicine can not solve gene problem presently,
the conventional effect of it is much more advanced than Western Medicine, and
it has no side effect and very few recurrence. While Traditional Chinese
Medicine still has some disadvantages like slow effect period and low medicine
utilization as well as bad taste.
Secondly, Characteristic Chinese Medicine: this refers to Micro-Chinese
Medicine Osmotherapy which is a brand new treatment of PKD with brilliant
effect. During the process of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, active
substances of micronized Chinese Medicine can enter into kidney lesion directly.
Through the method of improving microcirculation of cyst wall, Micro-Chinese
Medicine can increase reabsorption of cyst fluid reduce cyst fluid secretion,
which can shrink and reduce cysts gradually. Then pressure on kidney can be
relieved, which prolong PKD patients’ live greatly.
