How to Deal with Blood in Urine for PKD Patients

2012-12-06 08:44

For PKD patients, blood in urine is a very common symptom. The following information is about how to deal with blood in urine for PKD patients. And we hope it could be helpful.

What are the possible causes of blood in urine for PKD patients?

Blood in urine is mainly caused by the following reasons. One is renal hematuria. The compression of continuously enlarged cysts to surrounding renal tissues will damage the renal functional units and start the process of renal fibrosis. The glomerular basement membrane is damaged and its permeability is increased, as a result, the blood cells will pass through the glomerular filtration membrane and be discharged into urine and form hematuria. The other reason is rupture of blood vessels due to enlarged cysts. In addition, blood in urine can be caused by other reasons such as urinary tract infection, kidney stone or cancerization. If blood in urine lasts for more than one week or PKD patient is older than 50 years old, related tests should be done to rule out the possibility of cancerization.

Treatment to help deal with blood in urine for PKD patients

From the information mentioned above, we can know that blood in urine is caused by either the damage of glomerular basement membrane or the rupture of blood vessels, while they are caused by the enlarged cysts. So we should transform the key point of treating blood in urine into shrinking the cysts. However, there are no efficient western medicines can do that. In many countries, PKD patients are usually told by their doctors that there are no efficient treatments for PKD. The steroid therapy and the immunosuppressive agents will be used to relieve the symptoms of PKD, and dialysis or kidney transplant will be recommend when PKD develops Renal Failure. In China, Chinese herbal medicine will be used to shrink these cysts. The active substances can promote blood circulation, increase the permeability of cysts wall, decrease the ability of secreting cyst fluids of lining cells and change the internal and external pressure difference of cysts wall, as a result, the cyst fluid can be reabsorbed and finally be removed out of body with urine. As long as the cysts can be shrinked safely, the symptoms of PKD can be improved, of course including blood in urine. Moreover, the kidney damage can be repaired and kidney function can be enhanced, that is because the active materials of Chinese herbal medicine can provide nutrition for kidneys to nourish them.
