For Renal Failure caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), it has complicated manifestations. In addition to pkd characteristic fluctuations, like lumbago, abdominal lump and Hematuria, etc, many complications may occur, and the common types include Hypertension, cysts' infection and cyst rupture etc. In the final stage, symptoms like swelling abdomen, waist distending pain, dyspnea, urinary tract infection, nausea vomiting etc. makes sufferer rather painful.
I. Detecting the disease as early as possible
According to statistics, 60%-70% of patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease
(PKD) have a tendency of inheritance, and it has equal incidence for male and
female exceptionally. Therefore, several persons may get this disease
simultaneously in a family with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) history.
Generally, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) bursts in 25-35 years old. And some
symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) can be found only when Renal Failure
occurs. Hence, it is advisable to do general check and regular visit for family
members with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) history, so as to detect the
disease in early time and take treatment in time. Present check methods like
Type-B Ultrasonic examination, CT, and MRI etc. can diagnose this disease.
Regular test on Serum Creatinine and Urea Nitrogen should be conducted, because
they can reflect the damage of renal function and its progression status. The
approach of DNA diagnosis can be applied in early pregnant period in order to
know the condition of fetus inheritance, which is helpful to improve eugenic
II. Early prevention and complications’ treatment
Hypertension, urinary tract infection and cysts crack are the common
complications of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and they are also the important
factors to(of) inducing and aggravating renal functional damage. It is requisite
to treat and control these complications in time. However, to avoid nephrotoxic
medicines is noticeable in the treatment. It is probable that cysts infection,
accompanying with bleeding or cysts rupture occur, if constant hematuria, severe
lumbago and abdominal pain etc. happen. That is reasonable that patients should
be sent to the hospital in time in order to avoid delaying illness condition and
aggravating Renal Failure.
III. Tapping treatment
Tapping is a universal treatment in western medicine in recent years, and it
is applied in manifold cysts. The aim of tapping to those cysts is to eliminate
or relieve the pressure of cysts to renal tissue, so as to recover kidney blood
flow volume, protect and improve renal function. Meanwhile, it has a pleasant
curative effect on treating cysts’ infection, bleeding and abscess. The
advantage of cysts tapping is simple operation, tiny injury of tissue and less
pain to patients. Moreover it can be operated repeatedly. The drawback is that
it can not treat this disease radically.
IV. Chinese medicine treatment
Chinese medicine has extraordinary effect on treating chronic renal failure.
Especially for those sufferers in early and middle stages, Chinese medicine can
relieve clinical symptoms apparently, control the progression of disease and
decrease Serum Creatinine and Urea Nitrogen. To treat Renal Failure caused by
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), some Chinese medicines like Dangshen, Chinese
Rhubarb, Angelica sinensis etc can be adopted to improve blood circulation and
eliminate stasis, clean humid and relieve toxin so as to get pleasant curative
effect. But Chinese medicine works slowly and has a long treatment course.
V. Combined treatment of Chinese and western medicine
To treat Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), Micro Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy
with special efficacy is one of the most effective treatments with satisfactory
prognosis. By improving blood circulation and removing obstruction in body,
cysts can shrink and disappear on their own. The aim to recover renal function
and cure disease can be attained finally.
VI. Household care and nourishing
Renal Failure caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a chronic
progressive disease which can be aggravated by sentimental changes, excessive
fatigue and irregular diet, falling and injury. Hence, sufferers with Polycystic
Kidney Disease (PKD) should keep a pleasant mental status, combine rest and
work, build confidence to conquer disease and cooperate with the doctor to treat
this disease. Patients can eat fresh and mild diet rich in nutrition, ear more
fruit and control protein intake properly. Besides, patients should eat less raw
and cold foods, spicy and excitant stuff; quit smoking and drinking; keep
defecation unobstructed. Sufferers are requisite to limit the intake of sodium
salt when apparent Hypertension and Edema occur. Proper recreations and sports
can be done but patients have to protect waist from being squeezed in order to
avoid cysts rupture and bleeding. Patients with severe conditions need to stay
VII. Kidney replacement treatment
Patients in final stage of Renal Failure lost part or total renal function,
and have a bad sensitivity to drugs. Clinical symptoms aggravates increasingly
as well. It is reasonable to take kidney replacement treatment, hemodialysis,
combining with Micro Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. On one hand, it can replace
kidney to discharge toxin out of body, on the other, it can save the final renal
function. The aim is to reduce dialysis frequency and help patients get rid of
dialysis thoroughly, so as to moderate the disease fundamentally. Enterocoelia
capacity decreases due to obvious kidney enlargement, so peritoneal dialysis has
bad curative effect, and hemodialysis is usually conducted in such a case.
However, patients with constant bleeding or uncontrollable Hypertension can
consider surgical operation to remove the kidneys. Certainly, they can also take
In conclusion, to protect the remaining renal function and avoid further
damage of renal function, patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) need to
prevent and treat complications of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) actively in
early stage. Most of the patients can control and improve their renal function
and clinical symptoms as long as taking proper and correct treatment, so as to
keep the condition stable, improve life quality and extend life expectancy.
