Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-09-24 15:26

Can You Get PKD if No One in Your Family Had ItCompared with other kidney diseases, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) has a strong inherited characteristic. However, some PKD patients find they don’t have any relative with this disease. Well then, can you get PKD if no one in your family had it?

Find out the causes of PKD so that you can know the answer

The onset of PKD is due to abnormal genes, and the genetic defects indicate this disease commonly runs in families. Only in some cases, a person with PKD don’t have a family history of the disease. These cases may happen in two conditions:

1. Besides inherited factors, a genetic mutation is another cause of PKD. Long-term radiation, environmental toxins, mutagen matter produced by organisms themselves, etc, all can cause genetic mutation and may induce the onset of PKD.

2. Also, it is possible that someone in these PKD patients’ family did have this disease, but didn’t show symptoms before dying of other causes. That is to say, some of these patients indeed have a family history of PKD, but they don’t know.

Since we find the answer, what should we do?

Until now, PKD has been the fourth leading cause of kidney failure all over the world. It is reported that about 80% of PKD patients also have kidney failure finally without effective treatment. Therefore, a proper and useful treatment is essential to slow the progress of PKD or prevent kidney failue.

In the modern medical system, both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) use their specific treatment to help control PKD.

Western medicines: It works to ease patients’ symptoms, remove large kidney cyst or sustain patients’ life. Anti-hypertensive medications are used to lower high blood pressure, aspiration helps drain up large PKD cyst and dialysis begins in the end stage PKD to maintain patients’ basic life. However, all of these methods can’t prevent PKD from developing to kidney failure.

TCM: So far, some herbs are found that they can help shrink all PKD cysts by prompting the reabsorption of sac fluid and inhibiting the fluid supplement, while some others are effective on improving kidney function so as to reverse patients’ condition. However, these herbs may need a little long time to work.

Therefore, a treatment combines the advantages of the above methods is needed urgently. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is just such a combination that has helped many PKD patients from various countries. With this therapy, you don’t need to be bothered that you are the only one in your family who get PKD.
