Why PKD Patients have Have Dry SkinFor patients with PKD, their kidney function will be damaged gradually by their disease, which can cause them to have many health problems. In fact, many patients with PKD may have dry skin, which is a common skin problem.

As we know, kidney is a very important organ for our internal metabolic balances, and when patient’s kidney function is damaged gradually by the enlarged kidney cysts, many health problems will appear in this process, and many patients may have dry skin in this process.

Why patients with PKD have dry skin?

When patient’s kidney function is damaged gradually, there will be lots of metabolic wastes accumulating in patient’s body, which can cause them to have many health problems.

Urea is a metabolic waste of protein, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. But when PKD patients’ kidney function is damaged severely, patients will have high level urea in their body. While high urea can cause the shrinkage of sebaceous gland and sweat gland, which can cause patients to have dry skin. Dry skin can cause infection and it can also cause skin itching.

How to deal with this problem?

Thereby, to relieve patient’s dry skin, it is necessary for patients to reduce the urea level in his body.

To reach that purpose, it is important for patients to restrict his protein intake and increase calory intake moderately to reduce his urea level. If patient’s condition is too severe, dialysis will be helpful to remove the metabolic wastes from patient’s body.

On the other hand, it is also necessary to improve patient’s kidney function to redcue his urea level. Chinese medicine and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy are perfect choices to reach that purpose, becasue they can shrink patient’s kidney cysts, and then repair patient’s damaged kidney structure. If patient’s kidney function can be improved, patient’s urea level will be reduced naturally, and this problem will be relieved.
