Can Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) lead to Renal Failure?

Can Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) lead to renal failure? The answer is yes.
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a hereditary disease; about 60%-70% of the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients are congenital. It is common that there is more than one patient in a family. The cysts will increase progressively and when the cysts are larger than 5cm, proper treatment should be received or the enlarged cysts will oppress the renal cells and tissues and in the end lead to the end-stage renal failure or uremia.
So are there any precautionary measures that can help delay the progression of the disease?
How Does Polycystic Kidney Disease Progress to Kidney Failure
1. Early prevention and treatment of the complications of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) . Hypertension, urinary tract infections and the rupture of the cysts are the most common complications of PKD and they are also the crucial factors of inducing and worsening the kidney damages, so the timely prevention and treatment are very important. But there is one thing that needs to be noted that more attention should be paid to the medicines the doctor prescribed to you. Some medicines have kidney toxicity which should be avoided by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients. So before taking the medicines, you should first make sure whether it is harmful to the kidneys or not.How to Shrink the Cyst With Polycystic Kidney Disease(PKD)

3. The application of Chinese Medicine. From years of clinical practices, we know that the Chinese medicine has very good effects on the chronic renal failure, especially for the patients that are at the early stage. It can obviously bring the disease well under control and improve the symptoms, like reducing the creatinine level and urea nitrogen.Chinese Herbs for PKD
4. Combination with the Western medicine. In the end-stage renal failure, usually Chinese medicine will be combined with the Western medicine. Because in the most cases the majority of the patient’s kidney functions or even all of the kidney functions have been lost, they have already lost the sensitivity to the medicine. Western medicine is effective at relieving symptoms in a relatively short time although it can’t solve the problems fundamentally. We need to adopt the Western therapy to help control the disease first and save more time for the Chinese medicine to take effects.How Many Years Can PKD Patients Live Before Dialysis
