Treatment for PKD

2013-10-25 17:01| Font Size A A A

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a cystic genetic disorder of the kidneys. There are two types of PKD: autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and the less-common autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD). These two forms are distinguished by their patterns of inheritance. Polycystic kidney disease is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases, affecting an estimated 12.5 million people worldwide. Since it is so, is there any effective treatment for PKD?

PKD is characterized by the presence of multiple cysts typically in both kidneys. However, 17% of cases initially present with observable disease in one kidney, with most cases progressing to bilateral disease in adulthood. The cysts are numerous and are fluid-filled, resulting in massive enlargement of the kidneys. The disease can also damage the liver, pancreas and, in some rare cases, the heart and brain.

According to the statistics, one quarter of the cases at the age of 50, three-quarters of the patients at the age of 60 turn into uremia and need Dialysis.

About 10% of patients will suffer from a brain aneurysm. And when the diameter of aneurysm reaches to about 1 cm, it has the risk of rupture, and surgical treatment should be considered at this time.

There is no any drugs can stop vesicle grow. Therefore, what the patients need to do is control blood pressure, prevent infection and avoid using the nephrotoxic drugs.

Experts suggested taking the integrated Chinese-western therapy such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to restrain the growth of the cysts. This method is characterized by two sides. The first one is to reduce the source of the cyst fluid, to inactivated cyst epithelial cells, inhibit the secretion of cyst fluid, and stop the growth of cyst. The other one is increase the cyst fluid excretion and the permeability of the blood circulation to accelerate the cyst fluid drainage and cyst retraction.
