Avoid Dialysis for People with Polycystic Kidney Disease
“My father has Polycystic Kidney Disease and he has done dialysis for many years. During the dialysis, he had to endure a great discomfort. Now, I am diagnosed with renal cysts too. I don’t want to do dialysis. Do you have any method to avoid dialysis?” A patient with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) asked me last week.
This problem must be faced by many patients. To find the answer, I have consulted many experts who are masters in Polycystic Kidney Disease. They said avoiding dialysis for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease especially in early stage is possible, if these patients have healthy nursing care and accept the proper treatment timely.
If patients’ renal cysts are few and small, a good habit can help them to fight against their Polycystic Kidney Disease. To avoid dialysis, these patients should quit smoking and avoid strong tea, coffee, alcohol and chocolate in everyday life. In addition, they can’t use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), so their residual renal function can maintain a longer time.
If patients’ conditions deteriorate, only depending on a healthy nursing care is not enough. At that time, some methods to treat complications and improve their immune system are needed. Some herbs, through oral use and external use, can promote blood circulation, improve capsule wall blood circulation, increase the permeability, and promote cyst fluid inside back to the suction. After a period of recuperation, renal cyst will be reduced to bedding think shape, that is to say patients’ condition is controlled. So they can avoid dialysis or at least slow the process of dialysis.
Many families with Polycystic Kidney Disease gene are bothering dialysis or the coming dialysis. Now, a healthy nursing and some Chinese herbs give a new hope to them and then avoiding dialysis is not a dream.
