Things to Help You Delay the Progression of PKD Stage 4
I have stage 4 polycystic kidney disease as a 36 year old male adult, and was looking for some things that might help me delay the progression of the disease.

Answer: We all know that polycystic kidney disease is genetic. But some people find it early, while some find it late. Actually this problem is related to the second hit of environment. Therefore, if more attention is paid to it in early stage and on healthy lifestyle and food, the onset of the disease will be late and the progression will be slowed down. Generally speaking, PKD patients will have high blood pressure in 30s, high serum creatinine level in 40s and kidney failure in 50s. But from your description, you develop to stage 4 renal failure when you are just at 36 years old. It means that your disease is developing very quickly. If you want to delay the progression, you must seize your time to find out an effective treatment.

Treatment for PKD patients to delay the progression

In stage 4, kidneys have been severely damaged so that surgery to drain the cysts is not recommended. Here we recommend conservative treatment—Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. The medicine is micronized into so small molecules that it can arrive at the kidneys directly through skin and channels on the back. It can improve the microcirculation and permeability of the cyst walls, thereby the cyst liquid can be reabsorbed and discharged out with blood circulation. Because it acts on all the cysts at the same time, they will become small overall. Besides, the active ingredients of the Chinese herbal medicine can restrain the proliferation of cyst lining cells, so the cysts won’t grow bigger.

Other aspects for PKD patients to delay the progression

-In diet, you should follow reduce salt, fat, potassium, phosphorus and protein intake. But eating more food high in vitamins such as fresh vegetables will be good for you.

-In exercises, because the cysts are very big, you had better avoid exercises, especially those fierce exercises, which may cause burst of cysts. If you would like to take part in some exercises. Walking is recommended.

As long as you follow the above advice, it is possible for you to delay the progression of PKD and keep yourself away from dialysis and kidney transplant. For more information on PKD treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
