One patient told us he has both henoch-schonlein purpura (HSP) and kidney cyst, and he consulted what is his outlook. If you also have this problem, the following information may be helpful for you.
Is there a link between henoch-schonlein purpura and kidney cyst?
Honestly speaking, HSP doesn’t cause kidney cyst directly, but its complications may lead to cysts in kidneys in some cases. In clinic, kidney cyst usually occurs in elderly adults. However, HSP can increase the incidence of kidney cysts, and patients may have kidney cysts in young adults or even children. This is because HSP is one autoimmune disorder that can attack many organs, including skin, muscle, heart, kidney and respiratory system, etc.
When kidneys are involved in HSP, glomerulonephritis along with renal tubular acidosis is more likely to occur. With glomerular and renal tubular disorder, cysts develop in kidneys easily. After knowing their link, we will talk about how to deal with them in detail.
Treatment for henoch-schonlein purpura and kidney cyst
To deal with kidney cysts, surgery and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are two choices. Surgery can only remove large kidney cyst quickly, while TCM can help shrink all kidney cysts simultaneously but may need relatively longer time to work.
To manage HSP, NSAIDS, corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, etc, are conventional treatment plans. In recent years, Polluted Blood Therapy is also helpful to deal with this disease. On one hand, some blood purification methods are used to remove immune complexes and toxins from the body. On the other hand, some herbal medicines are taken to regulate patients’ immune system, so as to prevent the recurrence of HSP.
Here, these are some treatment options for people with both of HSP and kidney cysts. A correct treatment can give patients a good outlook. If anything unclear, you can send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
