2018-10-24 08:38

Question: I am a ADPKD patient 5 years ago. I found it by ultrasonic diagnosis. Now one 5 cm cyst on the left kidney, and 3 cysts on right kidney. There is some pain sometimes. It is tolerable, but I’m feeling weaker day by day. I know it is genetic disorder and has no appropriate treatment. What should I do now? Please give me some suggestion.

ADPKD, 5 cm Kidney Cyst, Weak Feeling: What Should I DoAnswer: ADPKD is genetic and has no appropriate treatment, but it does not mean you can do nothing but wait for the coming of kidney failure. Now the 5cm cyst is a little big, which can oppress tissues around to lead pain.

Weakness and anemia

Your weakness may be associated with anemia. What your GFR now? With the growth of renal cysts, renal function will decline. The damaged kidney can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells, causing anemia. Weakness is a common symptom of anemia. In such a case, you need to take EPO and iron supplements to improve anemia. And then you will feel better.

Treatment for the renal cysts

Although there is no treatment to change the genes, there is treatment to shrink renal cysts or even stop their growth. In Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, we usually use Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is an external application of Chinese herbs. When you receive treatment, you just lie on back. With the help of osmosis devices, active ingredients of medicine can be infiltrated into polycystic kidneys to take effect. They can suppress the proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and stop the secretion of lining cells so as to prevent renal cysts from growing. They can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will become small.

Under the treatment, after about one week’s treatment, back pain will be relieved.

After about half month’s treatment, you will feel energetic.

After about one month’s treatment, renal cysts will be smaller than before treatment, and renal function will get improved.

Now you know how to deal with the weakness, big renal cysts and ADPKD. For more information on associated treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
