Is Kidney Transplant The Best Treatment For Polycystic Kidney DiseaseIs kidney transplant the best treatment for polycystic kidney disease(PKD)? PKD bothers many families and brings many sufferings to them, so they are eager to find a treatment to relieve their pain.

Kidneys are responsible for filtering wastes and toxins out of the body. However, when they fail to work, much wastes and toxins will build up in the kidneys. In this condition, your doctor will often recommend you do dialysis or kidney transplant. But these two treatments can maintain patients’s life temporarily, and the dialysis will also cause many complications such as vomiting or nausea, and headache.

However, you have to have a long wait listing for kidney transplant. Besides, dangers during surgery and the high cost make them give up kidney transplant.

However, just as the above mentioned, the dangers during surgery and high cost make some patients give up kidney transplant, so it is not the best treatment for polycystic kidney disease.  In this case, to help patients with advanced PKD avoid dialysis and kidney transplant, many kidney experts recommend Chinese medicine for polycystic kidney disease patients to help them avoid kidney transplant and dialysis.

What is more important, Chinese medicines will carry some nutrients such as vitamin, amino acid to kidneys so as to improve ischemia and hypoxia of kidneys. After a period of treatment, renal cysts will be shrunk obviously and then the pressure on the kidneys can also be reduced. As a result, part of kidney function will be improved. As long as your kidney function is improved over 15%, you can avoid dialysis or kidney transplant.
