Does Fish Oil Help Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

2012-12-17 16:19

Does Fish Oil Help Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disorder featured with multiple cysts on kidneys. Conventionally, drugs for high blood pressure, immunosuppressants or steroids are used to control the symptoms of the condition. Can fish oil help PKD?

Fish oil contains oil expressed from the bodies of the whole fish found in the depth of ocean. It is rich in docosahexaenoic acid eicosapentaenoic acid. Some studies showed that fish oil slowed down the progression of IgA nephropathy and many nephrologists suggest that the patients add fish oil to their treatment regimen.

As of 2011, no clinical studies prove the effect of fish oil in PKD ( Polycystic Kidney Disease) patients. However, in 2003, a study examined the effect of fish oil on a rate of mold of PKD, rats fed with fish oil showed fewer negative effects of a high fat diet and also the disease stopped progressing. About whether fish oil can help people with PKD, there still a controversy. To prove its effect, additional researches are needed. Therefore, fish oil is still not used in clinic to treat PKD extensively.

So far, there is no cure for PKD. However, if proper treatment is adopted, it can slow down the disease progression. Apart from the above symptomatic treatments, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be used to treat PKD.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a holistic treatment for the disease. Firstly, it can stop the secretion of cystic fluids and stop the growth of the cysts by killing the epithelial cells. On the other hand, the therapy can improve the permeability of capillaries on the cyst wall to stimulate the excretion of cystic fluids. Thereby, the cysts will shrink gradually.

While Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can not change the abnormal gene of PKD, it can cease the progression of the disease completely. Therefore, it can prevent PKD from progressing into renal failure.
