Why Patient With Polycystic Kidney Disease Has Proteinuria

Why Patient With Polycystic Kidney Disease Has Proteinuria  Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disease, and it is also a kidney disease that often causes kidney failure. PKD can cause many symptoms, among which proteinuria is also very common.

Why patient with PKD has proteinuria?

Proteinuria in patient with PKD is not very severe, and the amount of proteinuria is usually less than 1 gram per day, so it usually does not cause nephrotic syndrome.

In fact, there is filtration membrane in glomerulus, which has the function of filtering out the wastes from blood and keeping the nutrients in blood. While kidney cysts in patient’s kidney can grow slowly, and when they are big enough, they will damage patient’s kidney structure, and the filtration membrane in glomeruli will also be damaged, and the permeability of filtration membrane will also be increased.

As a result, the increase in filtration membrane will cause many substances that should be kept in blood to leak out from patient’s blood, and excess protein will also leak out in this process, which lead to proteinuria.

How can proteinuria caused by PKD treated?

In treating proteinuria caused by PKD, the treatment is not like treating proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome, which is caused by the inflammatory reaction in glomerular basement membrane.

Proteinuria in PKD is mainly caused by the damage in glomerular basement membrane which is caused by the enlarged kidney cysts in kidney. So the treatment should aims at reducing the stress caused by kidney cysts to kidney structure and repair the damaged nephrons.

To reach this purpose, Chinese medicine will be a good choice, because some Chinese medicines and therapies, like trigone, ground beeltle and Hot Compress Therapy, have the effect of shrinking kidney cyst by increasing the permeability of cyst wall and the pressure difference of blood and cyst fluid, which can make the cyst fluid be absorbed by blood flow. Besides, Chinese medicine is good improving patient’s kidney function by regulating patient’s self-repairing ability, which can repair the damaged nephrons greatly. Like Acupuncture and Moxibustion, which is famous for its effect in regulating our body function.

Thereby, Chinese medicine is perfect choice in treating proteinuria and PKD. In the end, if you have any trouble in treating kidney disease, you can contact our online experts, and we are glad to help you.
