Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-03-25 15:11

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is commonly seen in polycystic kidney disease(PKD).Symptoms of urinary tract infection in PKD are as follows:

* A strong, persistent urge to urination

* A burning sensation when urinating

* Frequent urination

* Urine appears cloudy

*If there is red blood cells in urine, urine will become red, pink or cola-colored.

*Strong-smelling urine

* In serious, it can cause fever

Urinary tract infection is a risk factor in worsening renal function. Therefore, it is important for the patients to seek for timely treatment.

Apart from urinary tract infection, the patients with PKD will experience the following symptoms.

High blood pressure

High blood pressure is often the first sign of PKD. It usually occurs at age 30. As the large cysts oppress the kidney tissues, it will lead to renal ischemia and anoxia.As a result, more renin is secreted by kidneys, leading to high blood pressure.Uncontrolled high blood pressure can accelerate renal function deterioration significantly.

Back pain

The patients with PKD usually have mild pain due to compression to the kidney tissues caused by large cysts. If the cysts rupture, the pain will become extremely intense with appearance of red blood cells in urine.


Headache can be seen in some cases of PKD. High blood pressure is an attributable factor of the problem. Additionally, cerebral aneurysm is another cause of headache.If the aneurysm ruptures,it can lead to extreme headache and even threaten the patients’ life.

The above are the symptoms of urinary tract infection in PKD and other symptoms associated with the condition.If left uncontrolled, these conditions can accelerate renal function deterioration significantly. If you are wondering more treatment information for PKD, please consult us on line.
