2014-01-12 07:50

How to Deal with Polycystic Kidney BellyMany people with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) are tormented by their big or swollen belly, because their big belly makes them look like pregnant. Is there any way to deal with polycystic kidney belly? What can these patients do?

Firstly, make clear why PKD patients have big belly.

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one genetic kidney problem. Quite a number of PKD patients find there are other members in their family having this kidney disease, because for patients who have ADPKD, their children have 50% of chance to get this disease, too. As time goes on, more and more sac-fluid cysts develop in both kidneys. With their expansion, they can not only replace normal kidney functioning tissues but also enlarge patients’ abdomen or kidney area. Finally, patients belly becomes big and hard.

How to treat polycystic kidney belly?

Since the enlarged kidney cyst is the root cause, the key of the whole treatment is to shrink all PKD renal cysts. Here, there are two treatment options. One is surgery, and the other is micro-Chinese medicine hot compress therapy.

Surgery: Surgery like aspiration is used commonly to remove large kidney cyst and reduce patients’ back pain. However, it can only deal with large kidney cyst, and for small cyst, it can do nothing. Besides, when large kidney cysts are removed, it will give more space for small cysts to grow and then small cysts grow more quickly.

Micro-Chinese medicine hot compress therapy: Compared with surgery, it focuses on shrinking all kidney cysts at the same time but need relatively longer time to work. Usually after one or two weeks, patients can feel their abdomen becomes soft and their back pain can be relieved. After three or four weeks, their belly looks much smaller. All of these improvements indicate PKD renal cysts are shrunk into small size successfully.
