Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a hereditary disorder in which numerous cysts grow in the kidneys. The kidneys are two organs, each about the size of a fist, located in the upper part of a person’s abdomen towards the back. The kidneys filter and remove toxic materials and extra fluid from the blood to form urine. They also regulate the amounts of many necessary substances in the body. When the cysts form in the kidneys, they contain toxic fluid. PKD cysts may enlarge the kidneys while replacing much of the normal structure, resulting in reduced kidney function and leading to kidney failure.

Ayurvedic Polycystic kidney disease treatment is the best way quickly to get relief from polycystic kidney disease. When Polycystic kidney disease causes kidneys to fail- which usually happens after many years- the patient requires dialysis or kidney transplantation. About 50 percent of people with the most common type of PKD progress to kidney failure, also known as end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Polycystic kidney disease can also cause cysts in the other body organs such as the liver or pancreas and can create problems in other organs, such as blood vessels in the brain and heart. The number of unhealthy cysts and complications associated with them helps doctors distinguish PKD from the usually harmless “simple” cysts that often form in the kidneys in later years of life.

Types of Polycystic Kidney Disease

Commonly, there are two types of Polycystic kidney disease that are described below:

  1. Autosomal dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is a common form of PKD. A person can get this disease when one of his parents is affected by this disorder. The symptoms appear mostly in people aged more than 30 years. The progress rate of ADPKD varies from patient to patient.

  1. Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease is a very rare hereditary disorder that affects 1 out of 20,000 children. A baby born affected with ARPKD is generally born with it and in this condition, he has a large number of fluid-filled cysts on his organs; especially kidneys that can make the kidneys enlarged. A baby can get this condition only if both of his parents have genes for this disorder. Due to this health condition, a child experiences low kidney function. Consequently, poor kidney functions can raise breathing problems that are life-threatening in babies. The signs are visible before or right after birth as well.

Causes of Polycystic Kidney Disease

As most of us know, people with polycystic kidney disease have many clusters of cysts in the kidneys but what exactly triggers the cysts to form is unknown. However, there are some conditions that are generally associated with polycystic kidney disease. PKD is associated with the following conditions: 

  • Aortic aneurysms

  • Brain aneurysms

  • Cysts in the liver, pancreas, and testes

  • Diverticula of the colon

Most people with PKD have cysts on the liver. A family history of polycystic kidney disease increases your risk for the condition as it is an inherited kidney disorder.

Symptoms of PKD

  1. Bloody urine

  2. Kidney infections

  3. Cysts elsewhere in the body, such as the liver and pancreas

  4. Abnormal heart valves

  5. Kidney stones

  6. Hypertension (high blood pressure)

  7. Abdominal pain (from the enlarged kidneys pressing on the abdomen)

  8. Puffy eyes, hands, and feet (called edema)

  9. Increased urination, especially at night

  10. Pain or difficulty passing urine

  11. Varicose veins

  12. Hemorrhoids

  13. Headaches

Diagnosis of Polycystic Kidney Disease

Family history is important in reaching a diagnosis. The less common ARPKD can only be diagnosed through lab testing. The most reliable lab test that is carried out to detect polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an ultrasound of the kidneys. This test presents images of the kidneys that allow the doctors to see the cysts, and more specifically, their size and how numerous they are. PKD was discovered accidentally during an ultrasound or through blood or urine tests being done for other reasons. Blood tests are helpful in showing any buildup of toxins such as urea, while urine tests can show that the kidneys aren’t filtering properly, allowing protein or red blood cells to pass through.

Allopathic treatment for the final stage of Polycystic kidney disease or kidney failure advises a patient to take dialysis or an organ transplant in order to slow down cyst formation and replace a diseased kidney with a healthy one. That’s all allopathic treatment for polycystic kidney disease encompasses and hence you can say, there is no permanent solution for Polycystic kidney disease in Allopathy. That’s why Ayurvedic treatment is considered the most relevant treatment for polycystic kidney disease.
