Can You Die from Polycystic Kidney DiseaseCan you die of polycystic kidney disease (PKD)? when just diagnosed with the disease, you may become concerned about your life to be threatened so as to have such a doubt. In fact, there is no need. Read on to learn more information.

In early stage of PKD, there are not very symptoms but back pain, blood urine, proteinuria, etc. With proper treatment, those symptoms can be brought under control. With the progression of PKD, more and more symptoms and complications will appear. Under these conditions, your life may be threatened.

-Cardiovascular disease. This is the most common cause of death for kidney patients. Because PKD can cause high blood pressure, it is very likely for you to have cardiovascular disease, such as heart failure. To prevent this disease, you need to control your blood pressure well. Besides conventional anti-hypertensive drugs, you should shrink renal cysts, otherwise blood pressure becomes more and more difficult to control with the progression of disease.

-Infections. This is also a common cause of death. The reason why you get infections is that your immunity is not strong enough to fight against the invading bacteria and viruses. To improve immunity, you can do some exercises, follow a balanced diet, etc.

-Uremia. When PKD deteriorates into kidney failure, uremia may occur. It can affect all body systems to threaten your life. In such a case, dialysis and kidney transplant is often used to maintain your life.

From the above, we can see that to lead a normal life with PKD, a systemic treatment should be done to prevent associated complications. In China, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used into PKD treatment. This treatment can restrain the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to prevent renal cysts from growing. It can also increase permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will shrink. After about one month’s treatment, you will see the treatment effect. When renal cysts become small, renal function will get restored.

Can you die of PKD? In some cases, you can. If you want to lead a normal life, you should take treatment as early as possible to prevent complications.
