Why Do Polycystic Kidney Disease Patients Have Dark Urine

Why Do Polycystic Kidney Disease Patients Have Dark UrineWith the growth of kidney cysts, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients may notice some unpleasant changes in their urine color, such as dark urine, tea colored urine and red urine. These changes must make patients worried, because most of them still don’t know the underlying causes.

To be honest, all of these changes mean blood in urine or hematuria. It is reported that about one in two patients with PKD will have hematuria at some time. Dark urine is the sign that too much blood in urine. Why does dark urine happen to Polycystic Kidney Disease patients? Today, follow me to find three causes below.

1. The rupture of kidney cyst or the surrounding small blood vessels: Dark urine is uncommon in end stage PKD, because all kidney cysts are small in that time. However, as time goes on, cysts in the kidneys grow gradually. The pressure from the surrounding tissues can cause cysts to burst easily. Then, blood involved in cysts may flow out via urine, resulting in dark urine.

2. Urinary tract infection: This is one typical presentation of Polycystic Kidney Disease, while dark urine or blood in urine is just one symptom of urinary tract infection.

3. Kidney stones: When polycystic kidneys are unable to eliminate out extra uric acid, kidney stone may form. Then, as kidney stones move through and cut the urinary tract, hematuria will appear.

To manage PKD patients’ dark urine, they should have more bed rest and avoid all activities that seem to trigger or be related to dark urine. If blood in urine is caused by urinary tract infections and kidney stones, patients should drink more water to flush their urinary tract and the whole body. ( Consult your doctor in case you have low kidney function.) In severe cases, these patients should take some medications to solve the underlying causes.

If urinary tract infections and kidney stones are ruled out, the key of the whole treatment is to shrink kidney cysts and protect kidney functioning tissues. In this condition, we recommended you to Make an Appointment with doctors here, so they can give you some treatment suggestions for free.
