Can Cysts Still Live With PKD After Transplant

Can Cysts Still Live With PKD After TransplantWill kidney cysts still live with PKD after kidney transplant? If Polycystic Kidney Disease patients are faced to do kidney transplant, they must have this query. This is because no one wants to accept the second or even third kidney transplant in the rest of their life.

Generally, if the kidney donors don’t have this genetic kidney disease, PKD won’t relapse after kidney transplant. That is to say, cysts won’t live after kidney transplant, and the outcome of transplant for PKD patients is as good as that for patients with other types of chronic kidney disease.

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one progressive kidney disorder. With the expansion of kidney cysts, enlarged kidney cysts will replace more and more kidney functioning tissues. Patients are usually recommended to wait for kidney transplant, when their kidney function declines to 20% or less. If kidney transplant is successful, patients can regain a brand new life but need to take anti-rejection medications for the rest of their life. At present, the average life expectancy of transplant kidney is about 10 years. However, if unfortunately, the transplanted kidney will fail to work within several months or even 24hours because of rejection reaction.

From this point, if PKD patients still have certain kidney function and urine output, they can consider conservative treatments such as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. These therapies can prompt the reabsorption of sac fluid in kidney cysts, inactive the cystic cells which are responsible for secreting kidney cysts, nourishing impaired kidney cells, and increase these cells’ self-healing ability. Therefore, PKD patients can find their kidney cysts become smaller and smaller and kidney function can increase to some extent.

Once their kidney function increases into 20% and maintain stable, they don’t need to do kidney transplant any more. Hopefully, more and more PKD patients can live with their own kidneys.
