Untreated PKD for 13 Years: How to Manage It

Untreated PKD for 13 Years: How to Manage ItPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is chronically progressive disorder. In the early stage, patients usually don’t have any sign or discomfort, so no treatment is taken. One of our patients left his PKD untreated for 13 years, but some symptoms appear now. What should he do to deal with his illness condition?

After 13 years’ progression of PKD, some kidney cysts may expand to big size. In that case, these expanded kidney cysts will replace functioning kidney tissues and cause some problems such as high blood pressure, back pain, urinary tract infections, and so on. Therefore, patients should treat their illness condition from now on.

Several methods can help slow down the progression of PKD and protect kidneys.

1. Follow a scientific diet plan: Some foods can help manage PKD complications and slow the growth of kidney cysts, while some other foods may cause further aggravation and stimulate the growth of kidney cysts. Therefore, these patients should try to develop a right meal plan with dietitian’s help.

2. Control PKD symptoms and complications actively: When enlarged kidney cysts oppress their surrounding tissues, high blood pressure, proteinuria and infections may appear. These problems will cause further deterioration easily, if uncontrolled timely.

3. Shrink kidney cysts: Since expanded kidney cysts are the root cause of all problems for PKD patients, they should try their best to keep kidney cysts in small size. Some Chinese medicines such as semen plantaginis and lalang grass rhizome can help drain sac fluid and inactivate cells which secrete fluid.

4. Rebuild kidney structure: If kidney function declines, some therapies like stem cell therapy may be needed to increase kidney function level and rebuild kidney structure.

The above steps can help make PKD under control timely, so if you have suffered from long-term Polycystic Kidney Disease, you had better take these treatments as soon as possible.
