Why Do PKD Patients Have Loin Pain

Why Do PKD Patients Have Loin PainLoin pain means patients' pain located in the lower back. For patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease, it is one common symptom. Why do PKD patients have loin pain? How to alleviate it?

The causes of loin pain for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic Kidney Disease causes numerous fluid-filled cysts to develop in both kidneys. In early stage, all kidney cysts are enough that don't cause any problem. However, with their expansion, enlarged kidney cysts will replace kidney functioning tissues gradually. In this case, some PKD complications can cause loin pain.

The first one is enlarged kidney cyst. Kidneys are located in the lower abdomen. When some of them are too big, they will compress their surrounding kidney tissues and other organs. When nerves in these organs are pulled, patients will have loin pain easily.

The second one is kidney cyst infection. Compression on enlarged kidney cyst can cause it to rupture easily. Then, where sac fluid spreads, infections may appear.

The last one is kidney stone. When kidneys are damaged by enlarged kidney cysts, they are unable to remove oxalate acid from the body completely. The accumulation of oxalate acid will cause kidney stone, and too large kidney stone can induce loin pain.

How to alleviate PKD patients' loin pain?

Since kidney stone, enlarged kidney cysts and kidney stones are the underlying causes, the treatment should be able to manage these problems. Of course, effective treatment should depend on the underlying cause. To get an individual treatment plan, you can describe your illness condition for the Doctor online. Then, you can overcome this problem successfully.

For example, if patients' loin pain is due to kidney cyst infections, they are suggested to drink more water and cranberry juice once they still have enough urine. In severe cases, they should also take some antibiotics.
