As we all know, the kidneys serve a vital role in removing wastes and excess fluid from the body through urination. Various factors can hinder this process, causing fluid retention, toxins to build up and chronic diseases in the kidneys that become life threatening. However, for PKD patients, their kidney normal structures and tissues has been damaged by the different sizes of renal cysts. A genetic disorder known as polycystic kidney disease causes multiple cysts to grow in the kidneys. Due to the enlarged cysts, filtering units named glomeruli can be damaged easily. Once it occurs, useful substances like proteins will leak into urine. In this condition, the plasma colloid osmotic pressure will be reduced, and large amounts of water can permeate into interstitial space, causing edema.
