Question: I have polycystic kidney disease (PKD). The kidneys keep growing. It is very large. I need to know what are my options for this disease?

Treatment Options for PKDAnswer: PKD is a genetic kidney disorder. Is there any other family member with this disease? Because the kidneys are full of fluid-filled cysts. When the cysts grow bigger, your kidneys become big as well. The growing cysts can impair kidney tissues, and the enlarged kidneys can also oppress the organs around. With the worsening of your disease, you may have to do surgery to remove the polycystic kidneys and start dialysis to maintain your life. But now your disease is not that severe. You can try other treatments.

-Conventional treatment

In western medicine, doctors usually prescribe medicine to help you control symptoms such as back pain, high blood pressure, hematuria, etc. As to the growing cysts, they can do nothing. But sometimes to relieve your pain, they may recommend you do a surgery to drain the big cysts. But this is only temporary medical relief. Once the big ones are removed, the small ones will quickly grow up and cause problems.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Here we suggest you try this treatment. It is an application of herbs onto your back. With the help of osmosis devices, active ingredients of medicine can be infiltrated into polycystic kidneys. It can restrain the activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the cysts from growing bigger. It can also dilate blood vessels to lower high blood pressure. Besides, it can increase the permeability of cyst wall and the pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be taken away. As a result, renal cysts become small gradually. After about half month’s treatment, your back pain will disappear. And high blood pressure will come down. After about one month’s treatment, kidney size and cyst size will shrink.
