Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-04-22 11:50

Polycystic kidney disease is a progressive kidney disorder. It can be divided into five stages.Corresponding treatment is needed in different stages.

Emergence stage

First stage of polycystic kidney disease is emergence stage. It is a genetic kidney disease.In general,the patients are born with cysts on kidneys.As the cysts are very small,it is not easy to detect them.If there is a family history of the disease,the patients should go for screening.Proper health care is important to slow the cysts growth.

Growth stage

At ages 30~40, the cysts develop very rapidly. This period is called growth stage.In western medicine,there is no treatment for polycystic kidney disease in this stage.Symptomatic treatment is the only solution in western medicine.

In growth stage of polycystic kidney disease(PKD),if active treatment is used, it will slow the cyst enlargement or slow the growth speed.Chinese medicine is a treatment option.The medicines can kill the epithelial cells on cyst wall to slow and even stop the cysts from enlarging.

Swollen stage

After the patients enter 40s, the cysts will enlarge further.When the cysts exceed 4 cm in size, it is called swollen stage. As the cysts enlarge, a myriad of symptoms will occur such as back pain, hematuria, high blood pressure and proteinuria.Combined therapy of western medicine and Chinese medicine is suggested to treat polycystic kidney disease.Western medicines can relieve symptoms.Chinese medicine can help eliminate cystic fluid and protect renal function.

Rupturing stage

If the cysts enlarge further, the cysts become susceptible to rupture. If the cysts rupture,it is important to prevent infection in case of septicemia and acute renal function deterioration.Shrinking the large cysts and stopping the small ones to grow is the key to prevent cyst rupturing.

Uremia stage

Uremia stage is the last stage of polycystic kidney disease.When polycystic kidney disease develops into uremia stage, dialysis or kidney transplant will be required.Now the patients have more treatment options,in which Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help improve renal function and help the patients delay dialysis and even avoid it.
