As for PKD patients, no matter they are in regular treatment time or in a convalescence stage, they should pay attention to their personal diet and related health care points, which is beneficial for PKD patients to get a relative better prognosis.
Ⅰ. Life care:
Firstly, patients should improve their both mental and physical rest. For
example, Nephrotic Hypertension patients should check blood pressure regularly
and adjust their bed rest time according to their blood pressure change.
Secondly, proper diet: special diet should depend on different illness
conditions. For example, if patients are in Renal Insufficiency period, they
should have a diet with proper high calorie and rational high-quality low
protein. Besides, liquid intake should also be limited in order to keep water
Thirdly, patients should keep their mouth care after a meal in order to
eliminate bad breath, reduce nausea and prevent bacteria and mildew growing.
Fourthly, patients should pay more attention on skin cleanness in order to
prevent skin infection. On point should be noticed that patients should avoid
soap and alcohol. As for patients who suffer from serious Edema, they especially
should care their skin cleanness and change lying position frequently in order
to prevent bedsore.
Ⅱ. Mental and psychology:
This refers to adjusting mood and emotion in Chinese Medicine. Kidney Disease
has a long course with frequent recurrence, so patients usually have heavy
mental burden. For this reason, it is important to encourage patients to talk
about their trouble and encourage them to have a healthy emotion and relaxing
mind in order to avoid negative emotion.
From the above, we hope that it will be helpful for PKD patients. However,
the key to treat PKD is to block Renal Fibrosis and recover injured renal
inherent cells, which can control cysts growth effectively and prevent this
disease developing into Renal Failure and Uremia.
