Polycystic kidney disease( PKD) include autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and less common autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD). Most of the babies with ADPKD die within several hours to days after their birth. In clinic, ADPKD is far more commonly seen.
ADPKD is an important genetic disorder which can cause renal failure. In most cases, clinical symptoms begin to appear between 30~40 years old. As the disease develops progressively, approximately 50% of the patients end up with Kidney Failure by age 60.
Generally, when glomerular filtration rate (GFR) reduces to less than 10 ml/min, dialysis is prescribed to people with PKD. However, dialysis is not a cure for renal failure at all nor able to improve renal function. Confined to dialysis all day long, the patients have to suffer a lot. So many patients consulting use are wondering if there is an alternative treatment to dialysis for ADPKD. Fortunately, the answer is YES.
In early stage of ADPKD, the patients usually have no discomforts. So they usually do not attach much attention to the condition. If early and aggressive treatment is used, it can help the patients avoid kidney damage completely.
However, if ADPKD develops the point at which dialysis has to be required, it is impossible to reverse kidney damage completely. However, aggressive treatment still can help improve renal function and avoid the need of Dialysis.
The alternative treatment for ADPKD is known as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. You may not be familiar with this therapy, but you must have heard of Chinese medicine. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine, but it is external therapy not oral medicine.
In treating ADPKD, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can stop the cysts enlargement by killing the lining cells on cyst wall. Additionally, it can improve the permeability of cyst wall to promote the discharge of cystic fluids from cysts, thus shrinking the large cysts.
The earlier ADPKD is treated, the better outcome will be. So you should seek for treatment immediately even if you have no noticeable symptoms of PKD.
