How To Understand the Polycystic Kidney Well In Principle

2018-12-04 09:01

To most kidney patients they are often confused to polycystic kidney and don’t know the how to deal with it when they have kidney cysts,then Iwant to share something useful with you about the polycystic kidney as following.

Polycystic kidney is the whole kidney full of cysts, large and small. These cysts will grow up with age, which will oppress the kidney, damage the structure of the kidney, reduce the number of kidney units that produce urine, and eventually the kidney will be damaged to the point where it cannot sustain normal life.

Patients with early symptoms of polycystic kidney will experience lumbago and occasionally suffer from hematuria or pyeloNephritis. This is often ignored by patients and no treatment is taken.

Polycystic kidney follows the autosomal dominant inheritance rule, and the incidence of disease is equal between male and female. If one of the father and mother is ill, 50 % of their children will get the cyst gene, for example, if both father and mother are ill, the incidence of their children will increase to 75 %. If a woman who is not ill does not carry the cyst gene, her children will not get the disease or atavism if she marries the opposite sex without polycystic kidney. It is not really inherited by parents, and very few people are caused by gene mutation.

The earlier the polycystic kidney is treated, the better the effect will be. The best time is to use effective methods when there is no damage to renal function. Early elimination of cysts or control of cyst development can completely avoid renal insufficiency or uremia.
