Polycystic Kidney Disease is a kind of congenital hereditary Kidney Disease, with seldom obvious symptoms in early stage. But if obvious symptoms appear, it means that renal injury has been really serious. Here are some light symptoms appeared in early stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease.
Ⅰ.Abdominal masses. When kidneys grow to a certain degree, masses with
various sizes can be touched in unilateral or bilateral midsection, moving with
breathing. Patients may feel pressing pain when there is an associated
infection. 50% to 80% PKD patients can have touched bilateral abdominal masses,
while 15% to 30% patients have touched unilateral abdominal masses.
Ⅱ. Dull pain or discomfort on waist and part abdomen. This usually happens in
the early stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Patients can always feel pressure
on waist and back, and sometimes patients may get serious pain. This symptom
appears intermittently or continuously, expressed by bellyache which can radiate
to midsection, inguen, back, and chest. Patients have to have a bed rest due to
worse pain caused by run, long-term sit and exercise.
Ⅲ.Anemia. Most PKD patients suffer a process of Anemia from light to serious,
accompanied by night urination. This symptom is always related with reducing
Erythropoietin and declined renal function.
Ⅳ.High Blood Pressure appears frequently among symptoms of PKD patients, with
an incidence of 50% to 60%. It usually happens along with headache and dizziness
before renal function declines, having a close relationship with hyperfunction
of renin-angiotensin system.
Ⅴ. Urine abnormality, mainly manifested by Albuminuria and Haematuria, is one
of the primary symptoms of PKD patients. Albuminuria which is related with
glomerular barrier function is most common symptom. While Haematuria is an
important factor for patients to judge that whether they are suffering from
Polycystic Kidney Disease or not.
In the early stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease, light symptoms of frequent
urination, urgent urination and nocturnal urination may appear, relating with
renal concentrated function decline.
Ⅵ. Symptoms of urinary system, such as anuria, frequent urination, urgent
urination, Odynuria, Haematuria as well as frequent nocturnal urination and
From the above, we can know that symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease can be
manifested in many aspects. Patients can notice these symptoms if they observe
carefully. But patients may have different symptoms with each other due to
distinctive personal condition. Once there is any doubtful symptoms appears,
patients should be sent to hospital for check and treatment as early as
