How Big Can PKD Kidneys Get

How Big Can PKD Kidneys GetMany Polycystic Kidney Disease patients complain they look like pregnant, because their abdomen expands gradually. This problem is due to the continuous growth of PKD kidney cysts. If you happen to have the similar experience, you may can’t help asking “how big can PKD kidneys get?”

Do you know the answer?

Numerous fluid-filled cysts, or even up to several hundreds, may develop in both kidneys. PKD kidney cysts are renal tubular epithelial cells’ abnormal proliferation, and there is one specific type of cells, called cystic lining epithelial cells. These cells are responsible for secreting sac fluid, leading to the expansion of kidney cysts as well as the whole kidney.

With the growth of kidney cysts, the kidney size will increase gradually. For PKD patients, their kidneys may increase twice or three times. Therefore, some PKD patients even look like pregnant for eight months, and they are eager to find effective treatments for shrinking their kidney cysts and belly.

How to deal with this problem?

At present, there are various therapies to deal with PKD. In China, we mainly use Traditional Chinese Medicine and Hot Compress Therapy for the basic methods. Some Chinese medicines such as lalang grass rhizome and semen plantaginis can help increase the blood circulation on cystic walls and improve the permeability of cystic walls, so sac fluid can be drained and discharged out via blood circulation. Meanwhile, some other medicines including semen plantaginis and rhizoma sparganii are able to inhibit the secretion of sac fluid, so they can help prevent the relapse of kidney cysts. Hot Compress Therapy is used to strengthen the effects of these medicines, repair damaged kidney cells and protect remaining kidney cells. Finally, PKD kidneys can come to normal.

The prescribed medicines and the detailed treatment plan should depend on patients’ illness condition. If you want to get a correct treatment plan in detail, you can leave a message below or consult the doctor online directly.
