I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
Recently, I experience joint pain accidentally and it brings great pain and much inconvenience to me. Besides, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease one year ago. I wonder is there a connection between this disease and joint pain.
Thanks for your inquiry. According to your descriptions, I will give you a detail explanation and recommend an effective treatment for you.
Indeed, joint pain can be caused by PKD. You should know Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic disorder characterized by the growth of numerous cysts in the kidneys. As time goes by, they are likely to become larger and larger and rupture. The enlarged cysts can press the kidney tissues and other organs, causing further damage. Well, how does it cause joint pain?
The important cause is that high levels of uric acid accumulate in the body. Uric acid is the byproduct of purine and it is normally removed from the body by kidneys. However,in PKD, the large cysts will replace more and more healthy nephrons, leading to renal function decline. When kidneys fail to work properly, they will lose the ability of eliminating waste products, resulting in high levels of uric acid in the body and joint pain will occur.
For this case, Chinese medicine therapy which aims to improve renal function is available for you. For example, Hot Compress Therapy contributes to shrink renal cyst and eliminate wastes through putting Chinese herbs into shenshu acupoint. It is a natural and safe method to manage kidney disease.
