Why Patients with PKD will experience anemia

PKD (polycystic kidney disease) is a common inherited kidney disease. It’s mainly characterized by differnt sizes of cysts on both of the kidneys, with time, the cysts will increase both in numbers and sizes, finally destroy the structure and function of kidney. One of the most common symptoms of PKD is anemia.

And why do patients with PKD present anemia?

Healthy kidneys can produce a kind of hormone called hemopoietin (EPO), this kind of hormone will come to marrow with blood, and stimulate the marrow to produce red blood cells. Red blood cells can transport in body and bring oxygen in the same time.

The kidney of people with PKD is damaged by cysts, with time, the cysts will increase both in quantity and sizes. The enlarged cysts will oppress kidney, in this way, kidney can’t produce enough EPO, the marrow can’t produce enough red blood cells because of the shortage of EPO. People without healthy red blood cells will suffer from anemia.

The key to cure PKD is to block the progression of renal fibrosis, repair the damaged kidney function cells, and protect the rest kidney cells from injurying. The active substance of Micro-Chinese medicine osmotherapy can act on cystic wall, improve the micro-circulation of cystic wall. Thus, the cyst can be decreased gradually.

Traditional surgery treatment may not eliminate the cyst, once big cyst is excised, and the smaller will increase quickly, thus cause vicious circle. Clinical practices have been proved that Micro-Chinese medicine osmotherapy is both effective and convenient.

Patients with PKD should have the confidence to defeat the disease. Also, they should keep a healthy diet: eat fresh fruits and vegetable, avoid cold, spicy food , avoid smoking and alcohol, limit protein. They may should limit salt. Joining in some activities is also necessary, but they should prevent the back or abdomen from extruding. Patients with PKD should go to standard hospitals.
