Can Polycystic kidney disease caused renal failure


Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder characterized by the growth of numerous cysts in the kidneys. The kidneys are two organs, each about the size of a fist, located in the upper part of a person's abdomen, toward the back. The kidneys filter wastes and extra fluid from the blood to form urine. They also regulate amounts of certain vital substances in the body. When cysts form in the kidneys, they are filled with fluid. PKD cysts can profoundly enlarge the kidneys while replacing much of the normal structure, resulting in reduced kidney function and leading to kidney failure.
When PKD causes kidneys to fail-which usually happens after many years-the patient requires dialysis or kidney transplantation. About one-half of people with the most common type of PKD progress to kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The duration from early stage Polycystic Kidney Disease to end-stage Renal Failure differs in different persons. A good nursing in daily life and timely treatment can all affect the duration. In addition, factors such as infections, not well controlled complications, improper diet, strenuous exercise, drinking or smoking can all aggravate the illness condition or fasten up the deterioration of Polycystic Kidney Disease into Renal Failure.
PKD can also cause cysts in the liver and problems in other organs, such as blood vessels in the brain and heart. The number of cysts as well as the complications they cause help doctors distinguish PKD from the usually harmless "simple" cysts that often form in the kidneys in later years of life.

How to Prevent Renal Failure for Polycystic Kidney Disease?

1. When the kidney is invaded by inflammation or stones the kidney tubules epithelial will appear phenotype transformation and then the permeability of cyst wall decreases so that the cyst liquid secreted by cyst wall can not be discharged out of human body. Then the cyst liquid will accumulate into the cyst which will lead to the increase in size of cysts along with the time passing by. So the key point to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease is to control and shrink the size of cysts and supply new nephrons to play renal function which should have been done by those necrotic nephrons.Keep good moods and avoid overwork. Follow the doctor’s advice. Have a light diet and eat more fruits. Control the intake of protein. It is better for your health to give up smoking and alcohol. When high blood pressure is serous and edema happens, restrict the salt intake. Properly exercise but avoid the extensive exercise.

2.keep a balanced diet
3.Active treatment

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy is taken to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease, of which the former is used to repair the damaged kidneys by shrnking and controlling the cysts, and the later is applied to regenerate kidney functions by producing new nephrons.the active substance of Micro-Chinese Medicine can restrain the secretion of cyst wall epithelial cell; prevent the continuous expanding of bursa wall vessels and cyst. This therapy fundamentally controls the enlargement of cysts and repairs the damaged renal nephrons.
