A patient with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) consulted us that if leg swelling is related to PKD. She said that her legs were swollen enough to make her boots uncomfortable.

PKD can definitely cause leg swelling. Our kidneys act cleaners in our body and they can remove extra fluids and wastes from our body normally. However, in PKD, the growing cysts compress the healthy kidney tissues and cells persistently, thus resulting in constant renal function decline.

When kidneys fail to work adequately, high levels of fluids will build up in body. For gravity and blood circulation, swelling usually occurs in legs and other lower parts. Retention of fluids is an important cause of leg swelling in PKD.

Additionally, swelling may be related to some medications for high blood pressure. According to the prescribing information available for Norvasc, one of the most commonly reported side effects was swelling.If leg swelling is associated with medications, the patients had better report it to their doctor and change the medications.

However, if leg swelling is caused by kidney damage in PKD, intervention treatment should be taken immediately. As the growing cysts are causes of progressive renal function decline, the goal of the treatment should be shrinking the large cysts and preventing the further growth of the small cysts.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an alternative therapy for people with PKD with growing cysts. It is a natural therapy developing from traditional Chinese medicine.
