Have Polycystic Kidney Disease For 2 Years, Can Stem Cell Treat PKD

Have Polycystic Kidney Disease For 2 Years, Can Stem Cell Treat PKDWe have met this question from patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Stem cell therapy is a new and advanced method in treating disease. Can stem cell treat polycystic kidney disease for patients who have this condition for two years?

The theory of sten cell therapy is making use of stem cell’s features of self-replication and multi-directional differentiation. When any part of our body has nidus, and by the guidance of related information, stem cell can differentiate into the needed cells of the nidus part, so as to replace the damaged cells to complete their work. .

While PKD is a genetic disease, which means there are mutation in patient’s gene. Thereby, stem cell may not be able to cure this disease.

On the other hand, PKD is a progressive disease, and the cysts will grow gradually, and the cyst fluid can not have any exchange with the outside part. So when the cyst grows too big, it will oppress the kidney structure, which will damage kidney gradually. While common treatment aims at controlling disease, so to slow down the cyst’s progression. In fact, stem cell can also be used to repair the damaged nephrons in this process.

Besides, if patients have too severe PKD, which means the left kidney function can not complete its normal work. In this condition, patients will need to have kidney transplant to prolong their life. In this time, stem cell therapy will be a great help for their treatment. For patients who accept kidney transplant to improve their condition, a big problem is our body autoimmune response, which means patient’s body tends to reject the transplanted kidney, and patient needs to take medicine to control this symptom. While for patients who use stem cell therapy to make their replaced kidney, they may not have this condition.

Stem cell may can not cure PKD, but it can still provide a great help for patient’s health. Besides, for patients who get PKD for two years, their condition is not severe at all. Taking right measures in their treatment, life habits and diet can slow down PKD’s progression greatly.
