What Should PKD Patient Pay Attention to

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disease (passed from an affected parent to their child) causing uncontrolled growth of cysts in the kidney eventually leading to kidney failure.

PKD affects thousands in the United States and millions worldwide – and yet, many people have never heard of it. Learn basic facts about what PKD is, how it impacts people and how the PKD Foundation helps. The more people who know about PKD, the closer we can get to treatments and a cure. Together, we can raise awareness and fight PKD.

Surely a good diet and life style can also do great help in prevent risk of PKD patients. So you need pay special attention to it.

But no specific diet or lifestyle measures have been shown to prevent cysts developing in people with ADPKD. However, a healthy lifestyle may help to protect your kidney function and reduce your blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular problems, such as stroke. Keeping your blood pressure down is especially important, as high blood pressure can damage your kidneys if you have ADPKD.

Tips for a healthy diet and lifestyle include:

· Maintain a healthy weight

· Drink enough fluid to stay hydrated

· Aim for a balanced diet that is low in salt, sugar and fat

· Take regular exercise

· Limit how much alcohol you drink

· Stop smoking

The information on this page is for people with ADPKD who are not on dialysis and don’t have very low kidney function (i.e. people whose kidney function is above 30%). If you are on dialysis, have low kidney function or have been given specific dietary or lifestyle advice from a healthcare professional, the advice on this page might be wrong for you.

If you have any concerns, always ask your doctor before making any changes to your own or your child’s diet or lifestyle.

If you still have any other questions, please tell me freely.

What Are the Main Causes of Kidney Disease

Each thing happens for a reason, such as kidney disease. Here are many reasons of kidney disease that be ignored by people. Except some primary cause like hypertension, diabetes or heart disease. We would like tell you some main causes based on our clinical experience.

1. Studies from the perspective of hemorheology prove that significantly increased plasma viscosity, whole blood viscosity, fibrin content and platelet aggregation are important causes of renal cell ischemia or necrosis.

2. Indfection is one of the causes of this disease. Pharyngitis, tonsillitis and other infections will cause this disease. Cold is the most common infection to bring or aggravate this disease.

3. Adverse external environmental factors, such as wind, cold and dampness, will lead to the reduction of the body’s own immune function and disease resistance.

4. Overwork reduces the immunity of human body, which will lead to this disease in the long run.

5. Long-term holding urine is not only easy to cause bladder injury, but also bacterial reproduction. Once it returns to the ureter and kidney, toxic substances in it will cause kidney infection, which will cause urinary tract infection, even uremia.

6. Misuse of drugs is the common seen reason.

A lot of cold medicine, antiphlogistic painkiller, reducing weight medicine and Chinese herbal medicine have kidney toxicity, and these drugs are used widely. The citizens that do not have medical knowledge is dangerous. Obese people are prone to chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, which, if poorly controlled, can damage the kidneys in the long run, indirectly causing the disease.

Too much salt is also a trigger.The main component of salt is sodium chloride . Sodium is our necessary mineral nutrients. Chloride is helpful to gastric juice production and maintain the osmotic pressure of blood . But if the the sodium level is high in our blood, it may cause swelling and high blood pressure. As we all know high blood pressure can lead to kidney disease.

Now that you know some reasons of kidney disease, we hope you can have a good habit of life and diet to prevent kidney disease. If you have any questions, please contact us freely.

Is renal insufficiency elevated creatinine waiting for dialysis or active treatment?

Many patients with renal insufficiency said that local doctors told them that there was no way to treat it, waiting for dialysis,after the blood creatinine was over than 300-400.No one wants to dialysis, but doctors already to say like this. Is it really just watching the blood creatinine keep rising?

Why does the doctor let you wait for dialysis? In fact, this statement is not a problem in itself, but it is more objective.

Because in the current treatment of nephropathy, the conventional treatment plan is mainly symptom suppression, that is, the so-called treatment only solves the continuous damage of kidney cells by “curve” by eliminating urinary protein, edema, inhibiting infection, and reducing creatinine.Problem does not directly affect kidney cells

In fact, it is not only the treatment of kidney disease, but also the treatment of other chronic diseases.For example, diabetes only regulates blood sugar and blood pressure. There is no good way for the body’s own insulin secretion, tolerance, lipoprotein synthesis, storage, etc.

Therefore, when the serum creatinine of patients with renal insufficiency rises to 300 to 400, it means that the kidney damage has exceeded 70%, and drugs such as Kaitong and Niaoduqing have no effect.Treatment method, and the blood creatinine has not reached the level that requires dialysis, so “waiting for dialysis” can be considered a relatively objective statement

Don’t want to wait? How to do?

At present, for chronic renal failure patients with serum creatinine below 500 μmoI / L, how do doctors do it? Uduqing granules, Haikun Shenxi capsules.

These two proprietary Chinese medicines, I believe everyone is not unfamiliar.Why do these drugs reduce blood creatinine? These two drugs have the effect of reducing turbidity in Tongfu. This is a Chinese medical theory, translated into Western medical theory: These two drugs can improve kidney blood circulation by improving kidneyDetoxification ability, which reduces blood creatinine.Therefore, improving blood circulation is the top priority in the treatment of renal failure and uremia.

In fact, hemodialysis is also for this purpose, but it is done more thoroughly and the blood is introduced outside the body for circulation.In the Department of Nephrology, Hebei Traditional Chinese Medicine Liver Hospital, we use “integrated Chinese and western medicine” to treat renal insufficiency. We use western medicine to eliminate clinical symptoms such as urinary protein and edema, and use Chinese medicine to improve renal microcirculation.

Of course, the traditional Chinese medicine here is not a proprietary Chinese medicine, but a systematic treatment plan of a traditional Chinese medicine formula based on the situation of each patient.This group of parties pays attention to “one person, one formula, one formula at a time”, which is also a combination of Chinese and Western characteristics. The excellent curative effect has attracted a large number of international patients.

Why Could Combined Chinese Medicine and West Medicine Control Renal Insufficiency and Creatinine Increase?

In the Nephrology Department of HHHTCM, when we treat the disease. Creatinine reduction is not the ultimate goal from our treatment. The most important factor for renal insufficiency is to protect renal function, retain residual nephrons, regulate human immunity, and repair damaged kidney tissue, improve kidney microcirculation and restore kidney function.

The value of creatinine reflects renal function. The increased creatinine is caused by kidney damage, toxins accumulated in the body and exceed the normal value seriously..

Instead of spending a lot of time and money staring at a number, it is better to save money to protect kidney function, preserve residual nephrons and repair damaged kidney tissue. As long as kidney function recovered well, creatinine will come down naturally.

So how to do it specifically?

Renal insufficiency is caused by a variety of reasons (the most common is nephritis), with severe damage to the glomeruli, which makes the body a clinical syndrome of disorders in excretion of metabolic waste and regulation of water electrolyte and acid-base balance. At this time, a systemic treatment plan combining Chinese and western medicine should be adopted. According to the different conditions of each kidney friend, syndrome differentiation and treatment should be performed to remove the factors that damage kidney function and prevent it from continuing to damage kidney function.

Such as proteinuria and hypertension

We usually take combined antihypertensive drugs to lower blood pressure, and use immunosuppressive drugs to control proteins. Two types of antihypertensive drugs: ACEI and ARB have both antihypertensive and protein-lowering effects, which is more conducive to protect renal function.

Prevent complications and prevent kidney disease from worsening further.

Such as anemia, calcium and phosphorus disorders, hyperkalemia, metabolic acidosis and so on. Controlling these complications will be of great help in delaying the progression of kidney disease. In addition to reasonable medication, a reasonable diet must be also noticed.

Pay attention to the inducing factors of kidney disease in daily life and avoid kidney disease relapse.

Patients with kidney disease must be careful not to catch a cold or infection. Kidney disease is a disease of the immune system. When a cold infection occurs, bacteria or viruses invade our body. In order to protect our body, the body ’s immune system will combine with them and form a single immune complex. These immune complexes are deposited in the kidney with blood circulation, causing kidney disease relapse.

It also makes it possible to further reduce kidney function and even speed up end-stage renal disease. That is uremia. As long as the standard treatment of patients with renal insufficiency, the same can be controlled to avoid the development of uremia.
