Errors in the Treatment of Polycystic Kidney Disease

As the development of medical technology, more and more people are diagnosed with
Polycystic Kidney Disease and since the disease is hereditary, it usually affects the whole family. However, there are still some misunderstandings on PKD which should be discarded as soon as possible. In the article, I will list three most common errors in the treatment of PKD.
First, once diagnosed with PKD, effective treatment should be received as soon as possible. PKD is a chronically progressive kidney disease and in the early stage the patients will have no obvious symptoms, so the patients will think little of it. Actually once the patients have discomforts, whether it is serious or not, it indicates that the kidneys have been damaged and more than half the kidney functions have been affected because the kidneys have strong compensatory ability. So a timely and proper treatment is the key point in the treatment of PKD.

Second, some PKD patients worry that they can’t have babies because of the heredity of the disease and they also worry that pregnancy will aggravate the illness condition. Actually whether PKD patients can have a healthy baby depends on the patient’s illness and physical conditions. For female patients, if they have no hypertension, kidney damages or great amount of proteinuria, they can give birth to a healthy baby and this will not worsen their illness conditions. It is recommended that they have babies soon after the marriage because their kidney functions will become worse and worse along with the age.Is There Any Cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease
Third, since traditional treatments have no use on small cysts so the patients are often told that no special treatment is needed when the cysts are small in size and they have to wait until the cysts are large enough to be removed by puncture or operation. Since the cysts will enlarge little by little, and when the cysts grow into a certain size, they will oppress the kidney tissues and damage the kidneys. And in the kidneys of the PKD patients, there are many cysts with varying sizes. When the large cysts are removed, the small ones will have more chance to grow large and the patients have to suffer from the pains of surgeries repeatedly. In the end, the kidney damages can’t be recovered any more, what is waiting for the patients are dialysis and kidney transplant. Actually it is the best period for the treatment of PKD when the cysts are small, only if more effective treatment can be found out. In this respect, the Chinese medicines have very good effects on shrinking both the small and large cysts.
In a word, once diagnosed with PKD, enough attention should be paid to it and patients have to do physical examinations every half a year to have a clear understanding of the kidney functions. The earlier the treatment, the better the curative effect will be.Available Treatment Options for Polycytic Kidney Disease
