Treatment for High Blood Pressure and Polycystic Kidney Disease

High blood pressure can be considered as the first symptom of Polycystic Kidney Disease and its main cause is the cysts. When cysts enlarge to a certain degree, it will compress kidney, affecting kidney function and blood circulation, and then high blood pressure happens. Only medicine intake can only control the symptom of high blood pressure, but it is not enough to treat the cyst which is the real cause. What’s worse, with kidney being affect further, the blood pressure will be more difficult to be controlled.

Polycystic Kidney Disease appears due to gene defect, so the cysts are enlarging all the time due to gene action. Cysts will produce pressure on surrounding kidney tissue, causing kidney damage finally. The cyst just looks like an air balloon. When the balloon enlarges to a certain degree, the surface of the balloon will not be able to burden the huge pressure between inner and outside, and then it will be broken. The damage in kidney will be aggravating all the time because the cysts are enlarging further all the time. When the disease progress into renal failure stage, even there are no cysts, the damage will also keep progressing automatically, which is the pathological feature of kidney disease. This is why so many PKD patients will have to accept dialysis or kidney transplant in the future.

As for PKD patients, treatment will be more difficult. Many doctors and hospitals do not offer PKD patients any treatment besides controlling their blood pressure or proteinuria, because they think it is a genetic disease and treatment will be useless. For this reason, they only suggest patients to wait for dialysis or kidney transplant. However, they seldom tell patients that dialysis can also not solve the cysts and kidney transplant may be the final choice for them. What’s worse, medicine scientists also found that cysts may grow again on transplanted kidney due to gene problem.

As for Polycystic Kidney Disease, it is more serious than Simple Kidney Cyst, so please discuss further with your doctor for the long-term treatment plan for you condition.
