The Prognosis Of Stage 4 Polycystic Kidney Disease

The Prognosis Of Stage 4 Polycystic Kidney DiseasePolycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disease, so this disease can not been reversed. The cysts in patient’s kidney will grow bigger and bigger, which will damage patient’s kidney structure gradually, and a lot of patients will have kidney failure eventually.

Kidney disease is divided into five stages according to patient’s glomerular filtration rate, and stage 4 PKD means patient’s kidney function is already damaged severely, but most patients’ condition is not so severe that cause them to take dialysis.

So, what about the prognosis of stage 4 PKD?

As we know, different patients will have different prognosis, because their condition is different. And it is hard to say how fast the progression of stage 4 PKD is, because it can be affected by many factors.

Kidney damage can cause many complications especially when patients are in the late stage, and patients with stage 4 PKD can have many health problems like cardiovascular diseases, renal osteopathy, nerve problems, hypertension, proteinuria, etc. These complication can aggravate patients’ condition obviously, and some complications can even cause death when patients are still in stage 4 PKD. Thereby, if there are severe complications in patients’ body, their prognosis will be much worse.

If patient do not have any obvious complication or system, and this condition is also common, patient’s prognosis will be much better. If patient cam have well nursing care and right treatment, at the same time, it may need a long period for him to have kidney failure.

In fact, stage 4 PKD is a severe stage, so most patients’ condition is hard to control at this point, and patient’s condition is more likely to be aggravated, especially when patients have bad life habits or do not nursing care.
