Is It Normal For PKD Patients To Have BreathlessOne of the patients say he suffers from polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and gets breathless when doing any work. Is it normal? Please follow us to get clear about this question.

Breathless in PKD can be caused by the following two reasons:

1. Pulmonary edema

With time going on, kidney cyst will enlarge. When kidney cysts enlarge to a certain degree, they will do damage on kidneys. In this condition, kidneys fail to remove extra fluid from the body normally. In severe case, fluid retention will cause the formation of interstitial fluid in lung and backflow imbalance. This makes a large amount of tissue fluid not be absorbed by lung lymph and pulmonary vein system. The extra fluid will collect in alveolar, pulmonary interstitial and small bronchi, causing serious obstacle of pulmonary ventilation and ventilation function. This is one reason why PKD patients suffer from breathlessness.

2. Anemia

Anemia is a common complication of kidney disease. Damaged kidneys cannot make enough red blood cells. If insufficient red blood cells cannot be transported to the body, patients are more likely to suffer from breathlessness.

What is the treatment for polycystic kidney disease?

As we have mentioned, the root cause for damaged kidneys is enlarged kidney cysts. Thus, the treatment for PKD should shrink kidney cysts and repair kidney damage. In order not to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and to improve the pesticide effect, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is created in China. This therapy is an external application and two bags with micronized Chinese herbs are put under patients’ kidney area. With the help of osmosis device, the active ingredients can reach kidney lesion directly and have the functions of declining the ability of secreting fluid of lining cells, increasing the permeability of cystic wall and changing inner and outer pressure difference of cystic wall. In this way, the cystic fluid can be reabsorbed and be drained out of the body with urine. Kidney cysts can be shrunk to a certain degree. This reduces the damages on kidneys and breathlessness will be alleviated effectively.
