“Do you think my PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) make me tired?”
This is a question from a PKD patient's private message. Yes, tiredness is one common complication from PKD.
Kidney cysts can slowly replace much of the kidneys, reducing kidney function and leading to symptoms like tiredness, poor appetite and poor sleep quality.
Thus, the radical therapy for tiredness is to stop the growth of kidney cysts and improve your renal function. In our hospital of SJZ Kidney Disease hospital, we treat PKD patients with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. However, this therapy is only available in China. Foreign patients need to come to China for therapy.
How does Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy treat PKD?
This therapy is considered as the most efficient therapy for PKD. Osmotherapy is a new innovation of Chinese herbal medicine compared with oral Chinese medicine soup. It is used externally. Two medicated bags filled with processed Chinese medicines are put under the lower back of PKD patients. The osmosis machine helps the active ingredients of Chinese medicines reach to kidney lesion directly through skin permeation. Besides, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy shrinks kidney cysts through increasing the permeability of cyst wall, decreasing lining cells’ activity of secreting cystic fluid and changing inner and outer pressure difference of cyst wall. In this way, cystic fluid will be reabsorbed and finally drained out of your body with urine. Kidney cysts will become smaller and stop damage on your kidneys. Besides, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can restore your kidney damage and improve your renal function gradually through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. When your renal function is improved, your tiredness can get relieved radically, so do the other symptoms like swelling, poor appetite, itchy skin and poor appetite.
