How Kidney Transplant Help Prolong Kidney Fail In PKDA: I have stage 4 polycystic kidney disease(PKD) and I would like to know how I can prolong kidney fail. How kidney transplant help PKD patient prolong kidney fail?

Q: polycystic kidney disease is a genetic kidney disease in which numerous cysts grow on the kidneys. And this disease has no cure, so PKD patient can only depend on dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong their lifetime. However, dialysis can only clear away some toxins out of the body and long-term of dialysis is able to lead to a series of complications like nausea, vomiting, headache and weakness, etc. In this light, kidney transplant is much preferred by kidney disease patients, especially for polycystic kidney disease, because kidney transplant is such an effective treatment in which healthy kidney is transplanted to a patient with damaged kidneys or kidney dysfunction. If the donor’s kidney is healthy and no potential genetic kidney disease, the receiver in the future will not experience polycystic kidney disease. On the contrary, if the donor’ s kidney also has a kidney disease, the receiver will suffer from kidney disease. That is to say, polycystic kidney disease can be improved by kidney transplant and the kidney must be healthy and no genes for polycystic kidney disease.

However, it does not mean PKD patients have no problems at all after kidney transplant, because kidney transplant will lead to rejection reaction. In order to alleviate rejection reaction, patients after transplant always take some medicines including cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine A, adrenocortical hormone and azathioprine, etc.

Kidney transplant is a treatment for polycystic kidney disease. However, owing to different health conditions and side-effects, there is no exact answer to tell how long you can live. For a better treatment, you should find a way to repair damaged kidney tissues and improve kidney function.
