PKD, GFR 13, 48 Years Old, Creatinine 5.0, High Blood Pressure

Q: I have polycystic kidney since 7 years ago. I am 48 years old and My GFR is 13, my creatinine level is 5.0 and i suffered some symptoms, such as flank pain, bubble in urine and high blood pressure. The medicines i take is only for lowering blood pressure. I want to know is there any way to slow down the growth of my cysts? Or can you help delay the development of PKD?

A: Thank you for your inquiry. I noticed your message on our website regarding your polycystic kidney disease. I’d like to offer my suggestions and hope they are helpful for you to manage your PKD.

1. Your GFR level now is lower than 15, which indicates you are already in end stage renal failure, or we call it ESRD and in this stage Dialysis is normally suggested to in order to discharge the excessive toxin and metabolic waste out of body.

2. Your creatinine level 5.0 exactly indicates the poor condition you are in. Creatinine should be filtered out of the blood when the kidneys can function well. This is why high creatinine level is an indicator of Kidney Disease. The normal range of creatinine is 0.6~1.2mg/dl and you can imagine how severe creatinine 5.0 is. As your kidney function decline, the waste product building up in your blood causes various discomforts. This explains why you suffer from flank pain, bubble in urine and high blood pressure. All of them are the common symptoms when kidneys are damaged.

3. For your condition, only by medicines for hypertension, it is far from enough to delay the disease because the medicine is only for bp, but not kidney. Therefore, treatment that can treat the cysts and protect kidney should also be taken at the same time. Only in this way, the progress of the disease can be delayed or even stopped.

We always say better late than never. It is true that it is difficult to recover your kidney to normal at this stage, but it is quite possible to stop the cysts enlargement and avoid dialysis. And to shrinking the renal cysts and improve your kidney function, you may have a try of Chinese Herbal Medicine.
