Polycystic Kidney Diseae And Metabolic Problems
With the growth and enlargement of renal cysts, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients would suffer renal insufficient due to the injured renal cells and taken of renal tissues by cysts. kidneys are responsibility for metabolism of human body, so with the kidney function decline, patients would suffer the metabolic problems which include:
Water-electrolyte disturbance. With the water-sodium retention, patients would suffer edema, high blood pressure and so on. in addition, the high phosphorus and low calcium level can cause muscle cramps, skin problems, poor appetite, bone disease and PTH secretion which can worsen symptoms we mentioned.
Endocrine dyscrasia. The injured kidney fail to producing enough EPO to support the formation of red blood cells, so patients often suffer anemia, accompanied with symptoms such as fatigue, hard to breath, poor spirits and so on. moreover, kidney insufficient blood and oxygen stimulate the renin-angiotensin secretion, leading to high blood pressure. All the complications can accumulate the kidney fibrosis progression.
Wastes retention. With the wastes retention including creatinine, BUN, uric-acid and so on, patients multiple system disfunction, such as nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, bad taste, body odour, headache, poor sleep, heart problems and so on. all in all, the wastes are toxic to many tissues.
