Does Enlarged Kidneys Increase Waist Size

Does Enlarged Kidneys Increase Waist SizeEnlarged kidneys mean there are cysts in patient’s kidney, which can enlarge patient’s kidney size. And patient may have this concern: can enlarged kidneys become so big that will increase patient’s waist size?

Will enlarged kidneys be big enough to increase patient’s waist size?

In fact, there are two kinds of cyst that can enlarge patient’s kidney. One is simple renal cyst, and the other is polycystic kidney cyst (PKD).

In fact, simple kidney cyst often just appears in unilateral kidney, and it often appears as a single cyst, so it will not cause obvious influence to patient’s kidney function. Thereby, this kind of kidney cyst will not cause patient to have increased waist size.

While if patient has PKD, that will be dangerous, because it can cause severe result to patient’s health. Patient with PKD will have numerous cysts in both his kidneys, and they have different sizes. The cysts in patient’s kidneys can grow gradually, and for patients with end stage PKD, their enlarged kidneys can fill his whole enterocoelia. In fact, about 50% PKD patients can find their waist size is increased by kidney cysts.

How can enlarged kidneys be shrunk?

To shrink enlarged kidneys, the common method is to using surgery to remove the cyst fluid. But this therapy is not a good choice for patient with PKD, because it can cause obvious harm to patient’s body health, and the small kidney cysts can grow big again just several months later.

While Chinese medicine is good at treating PKD, because it has the function of shrinking kidney cysts, and it can avoid the shrunk kidney cysts relapsing. Besides, Hot Compress Therapy is a great help to reach this purpose, because a major effect of this therapy is it can regulate the pressure difference in kidney, which can help blood vessel absorb cyst fluid, so the enlarged kidneys can be shrunk, and patient’s increased waist size will also be alleviated.
