How to Manage 30.3 cm Kidney Size with PKD CystsFor general population, their kidney size ranges stable. 30.3 cm is too bigger than the normal kidney. If people with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), it must indicate expansion of kidney cysts make kidneys enlarged. Well then, how to reduce kidney size for PKD patients?

What is Polycystic Kidney Disease?

In fact, PKD cysts are abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells. The onset and formation of these cysts is due to genetic factors, and most often, all of PKD cysts grow slowly. Therefore, most patients don’t have any symptom in the early stage, but with the expansion of kidney cysts, high blood pressure, back pain, enlarged kidneys, hematuria, urinary tract infections, etc, appear one by one. For example, 30.3 cm kidney size is just one result of bloating kidney cysts.

How to reduce their kidney size and shrink kidney cysts?

Not only correct medical therapies but also healthy foods and drinks all can help achieve this goal.

1. Medical therapies: At present, surgery and traditional Chinese medicine are two treatment options. Surgery can remove large kidney cysts directly and ease patients’ symptoms obviously in the early stage. However, in the moderate or end stage PKD, there is no meaning to do surgery any more.

Traditional Chinese medicines aim at shrinking all kidney cysts simultaneously. Through increasing the permeability of cystic walls and inactivating the cystic cells that are responsible for secreting sac fluid, Chinese medicines can drain kidney cysts naturally. However, different patients need different medicines. If you have enough patience and want to use TCM, you can send email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com.

2. Food therapy: Some food can help protect kidney function, including cranberry, red bell pepper, cabbage, etc. All of these foods contain high content of antioxidant and vitamin C, so they are good to slow down the progress of PKD.

3. Healthy drinks: Some herbal teas such as corn silk tea and dandelion root tea do help shrink kidney cysts to some extent, while alcohol and caffeine-containing drinks can stimulate kidney cysts to grow more quickly. Therefore, people with PKD should choose correct drinks.
