Treatments for Patients with PKD and Kidney Agenesis

Treatments for Patients with PKD and Kidney Agenesis“My brother has Polycystic Kidney Disease and kidney agenesis, and his creatinine level is 9.8 mg/dl. What medication or treatment is helpful for him?” One person consulted us online yesterday. As we know quite a number of people also have a similar experience, we share our answer here.

Firstly, we would like to introduce PKD and kidney agenesis.

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one inherited kidney disease that has two forms: ARPKD and ADPKD. ADPKD is much more common than ARPKD. ARPKD patients usually die before 20 years old, while ADPKD progresses slowly and some patients even don’t know they have this disease before death. Thereby, we mainly talk about ADPKD here.

Kidney agenesis or renal aplasia means the diseased kidney is smaller than 50% of normal kidney, but the nephrons and their differentiation is normal. With this problem, patients usually have severe high blood pressure.

Both of PKD and renal agenesis are inherent, so there is no prevention to curb their occurrence.

Treatments for Polycystic Kidney Disease and kidney agenesis

Until now, there is no specific therapy to deal with renal agenesis. If patients don’t have any complication, they can live with their kidneys safely. However, once patients have very serious hypertension and visual impairment, they need to accept a surgery to remove the diseased kidney.

The key to treating PKD is to keep all kidney cysts in small size and preserve the remaining kidney functioning tissues. As long as all kidney cysts are under the kidney’s capacity, these cysts won’t affect patients’ life. Some Chinese medicines like ground beeltle are proven to be effective on shrinking kidney cysts.

If you would like, you can tell me your age, creatinine level, kidney size, the largest kidney cyst, and so on. Therefore, our kidney experts can determine what medicines are helpful to treat your PKD and protect your kidneys.
