Treatments Options for Polycystic Kidney Disease(PKD)
As a life-threatening disease, more and more people have been diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease in recent years. And in this article, we mainly talk about the treatments.
PKD refers to a medical condition in which there are different sizes of fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys. With time, the cysts will experience a constant growth both in numbers and quantities. If not controlled well, the enlarged cysts will oppress the adjacent renal tissues and lead to a series of symptoms, such as, high blood pressure, back pain, hematuria, etc. Then what are the treatment options?
When the cysts grow too big, some severe complications are more likely to occur. In this condition, they may be suggested to undergo surgery. Even if it can show quick effects in shrinking cysts, there can be some traumas to the kidneys. What’s more, it can do nothing to smaller cysts and improve kidney function.
Dialysis or kidney transplant
If their kidney function is less than 15%, patients may be suggested to undergo dialysis or a kidney transplant. However, long-term dialysis may lead to some severe complications. As for kidney transplant, the cost is relatively high and there are usually no suitable kidneys.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy
As a combination of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) and modern technology, this therapy can help shrink renal cyst and improve kidney function.
