Is Allopathic Treatment Effective for PKD

2013-02-17 14:23

Allopathic treatment refers broadly to medical practice. It is also termed western medicine and modern medicine. Is it effective for treating PKD?

Allopathic treatment only aims at controlling the symptoms of disease. For example, if you have a tumor, surgery will be required to resect it. Antibiotics are used to treat bacteria. However, the treatment can not control the cause of the disease.

High blood pressure, back pain and urinary tract infection are commonly seen in PKD. If you use allopathic treatment, antihypertensive medicine, painkiller and antibiotics will be prescribed to control the symptoms. However, they can not stop the progression of PKD. As a result, more than half of the patients will end with Kidney Failure by age 60.

PKD is featured with numerous cysts in both kidneys. With age, the cysts will enlarge persistently in size. Then they will compress the adjacent kidney tissues, leading to renal ischemia and anoxia. Kidneys are filtering blood and reabsorb essential nutrients from blood. Without enough blood and oxygen supplement, the kidney cells will lose function and eventually die. To treat PKD effectively and stop its progression, the treatment goals are eliminating the symptoms and stopping the cysts from enlarging.

Apart from allopathic treatment, other aggressive treatment should also be used to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease. Herbal medicine is an alternative treatment for the condition.

Based on the patients’ illness condition, different types of herbs are given. The effective medicine ingredients can kill the epithelial cells on cyst wall and stop them from producing cystic fluids. Thereby, it can prevent the cysts from enlarging further.

Additionally, the Chinese medicine can enhance the permeability of blood vessels on cyst wall and increase the excretion of cystic fluids. Thereby, it can shrink the cysts and stop them from damaging kidney tissues further.

Allopathic treatment is not enough to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease. If this treatment can be combined with herbal medicine together, it can bring better treatment effects.
