Knowing more about tests items that Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients need to accept is helpful for patients to keep a steady mental condition when they are accepting these tests. Due to complex condition of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), many tests are needed to make a diagnosis. For this reason, it is necessary for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients to learn more about these tests.
Ⅰ. Routine Urine Test: seldom abnormality can be found in early stage, but
microscopic Haematuria can be found in middle or late stage. Some patients have
Albuminuria because cysts compress glomerulus which may reduce glomerular
filtrating rate. When this disease is complicated with Stones and infections,
White Blood Cells and pyocyte can be found in urine.
Ⅱ. Urine osmotic pressure test: even if there is only very few cysts in
kidneys in the early stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease, manifestation of kidney
concentration damage can be found, showing that this damage is not only related
with renal structure injury. It may also be related with renal slow reaction to
antidiuretic hormone. Kidney concentration ability decreases before glomerular
filtration rate decline.
Ⅲ. Serum creatine is increasing progressively with renal compensatory ability
losing. Creatinine clearance rate is a relatively sensitive index.
Ⅴ. IVP examination shows deformation of renal pelvis and renal calices. Renal
pelvis and renal calices are in strange spiderlike shape, with plain and wide
renal calices and thin and long renal pelvis neck.
Ⅵ. Through Type-B Ultrasonic examination, a large number of shadows can be
found in bilateral kidney region.
Ⅶ. CT examination shows bilateral kidney enlargement in lobulated shape, and
many cysts with thin cyst wall and fluid inside can be found.
Once Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients are diagnosed, they should
accept treatment actively so as not to delay illness treatment and cause kidney
damage. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suggested to treat Polycystic
Kidney Disease. This treatment can treat this disease starting with blocking
Renal Fibrosis, repairing injured kidney. It has proved by clinical practice
that Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has it distinctive effect on treating
Polycystic Kidney Disease.
