symptoms of polycystic kidney disease(PKD) PKD is a kind of genetic disease, whose main manifestation is many cysts of different sized in kidneys. These cysts grow progressively, and finally impair renal structure and function, leading to end-stage renal failure. What are the symptoms of PKD?


Most PKD patients experience a process from light to serious anemia, and they often have nocturia. This is related to progressive decrease of erythrogenin produced by kidneys and kidney function decline.

Waist and Abdominal Discomfort

The patients feel sense of pressure on waist and abdomen, sometimes with intense pain. The attack is intermittent or continuous, sometimes showing abdominal pain, which spreads to the upper abdomen, groin, back and chest. The pain can be aggravated by running, longtime sitting and exercise.

Blood Pressure Rise

High blood pressure is one of the frequently occurred symptoms of PKD. It appears before kidney function declines, accompanying with headache, dizziness. High blood pressure is closely related to the hyperfunction of renin-angiotensin system.

Abdominal Mass

When kidneys grow to a certain degree, the patients can feel lumps of different sizes on unilateral or bilateral upper abdomen. The lumps move with breath, and patients have pressing pain if coinfection occurs.

Abnormal Urine

The main manifestation is proteinuria or blood urine, which is the early symptom of PKD. Abnormal urine is related to the barrier function of glomerulus. Blood urine is the main factor for detecting PKD.

PKD is of great harm, and is the fourth reason for end-stage renal failure. It is very important to diagnose the disease earlier and adopt effective measures to control the conditions. Traditional medication therapy often does not show very good efficacy. Compared with traditional treatment, Chinese medicine can not only control the disease, but also restore the impaired kidney function.
