Damage to joint makes some PKD patients suffer from joint pain that affects these patients’ life quality largely. Why do Polycystic Kidney Disease patients suffer from joint pain?

Causes of joint pain for PKD patients

Polycystic Kidney Disease is actually the abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells. With sac fluid filling into kidney cyst, PKD renal cysts grow gradually. Finally, kidney functioning tissues are damaged. Normally, healthy kidneys can filter out extra fluid and waste products. However, impaired kidneys fail to play their filtration function. Then, uric acid along with other waste products begins to build up in the body. High uric acid can induce gout, which is one common reason for joint pain.

Treatments of joint pain for PKD patients

2. Develop a healthy diet plan: Uric acid is generated from purine, so PKD patients should avoid purine-containing foods such as animal giblets and seafoods.

3. Hot Compress Therapy: The first step is to make prescribed Chinese medicine shattered fully. The second step is to put these medicines into two bags which is soaked in penetrating fluid. The last step is to place these two bags in patients’ Shenshu acupoint, which corresponds to kidneys. Then, the effective ingredients of medicines can reach kidney lesions directly. These medicines are able to help shrink kidney cysts and inhibit sac fluid secretion, so kidney cysts become smaller and smaller.

In mild cases, patients may even take some NSAIDs or painkillers, but these medications are not enough in severe cases. Hopefully, the above three therapies are helpful for you. If you want to learn more about them, you can contact us directly.
