Treatment for PKD Patients with Joint Pain

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-12 03:57


Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an inherited kidney disorder with numerous fluid-filled cysts on kidneys. It may impair kidney function, leading to many problems. Joint pain is a common complication of PKD.

Joint pain in PKD

PKD is the fourth leading cause of Kidney Failure. As renal function declines, the diseased kidneys will fail to eliminate waste products from body. Joint pain is mainly attributed to deposits of uric acid in joints.

Uric acid is the end product of purine and it is normally eliminated from body by kidneys. However, the diseased kidneys fail to remove the uric acid from body adequately. The uric acid will deposit in different body parts. If the uric acid deposits in joints, it will cause inflammation of joints, thus leading to arthritis. Joint pain is a typical sign of arthritis.

Treatment for PKD with joint pain

Symptomatic treatment is generally prescribed to treat joint. A low-purine diet is usually recommended. Moreover, some anti-inflammation drugs are generally to suppress inflammation of kidneys. However, these measures only can relieve joint pain, but can not control it fundamentally.

To control joint pain in PKD, a treatment should be applied to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function. If the kidneys can function more efficiently, uric acid will be eliminated from body as efficiently as before. If so, joint pain in PKD will be controlled.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a recommended treatment for PKD and has showed enormous curative effects more than 25 years’ clinical practice.

The osmotherapy not only can shrink the large cysts, but also can stop the cysts from enlarging. More importantly, the medicines can stimulate the self-repairing of the impaired kidney tissues and cells. If the kidney structure can be reversed, the kidneys will function better. If so, uric acid level will return to normal and joint pain will be under control.
