General Treatment

If one is diagnosed with PKD, firstly he should keep a positive attitude.

Some chronic pain is temporary; observe first, choose opioid painkillers preferentially, and avoid antipyretic and analgesic drugs. Have an operation if the pain is serious and can not be relieved.

High Blood Pressure

Renal ischemia and the activation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterione system are the main cause of hypertension. High blood pressure is one of complications that last the longest time, and one reason that facilitates kidney function to worsen. Strict blood control can delay kidney function decrease and lower mortality. The ideal blood pressure is 130/80mmHg. In the early stage, you should keep a low-salt diet, keep weight and take appropriate exercise. If they do not work, use drugs. The first choice is ACEI and CCB.

Urinary Tract and Cyst Infection

Choose drugs according to bacterial culture and drug sensitive test. If fever still exists after using antibiotics for 1-2 weeks, take adrainage of infected cysts.

Sometimes it takes months to eradicate infection.


Drink more water. If symptoms exist, take extracorporeal lithotripsy or percutaneous nephrolithotomy.
