Best Ways Polycystic Kidney Can Be Treated!

Polycystic kidney disease is a disorder that is inherited; it is characterized by development of cysts in the kidneys. These cysts are round sacs that contain a water like fluid. Initially, the size of the cysts are small, they tend to increase in size after the fluid accumulation. This disorder can also cause cysts to develop in the liver and other parts of the body.

Symptoms and Complications
The most common symptoms of this disorder are back pain, headache, high blood pressure and kidney failure. It can also lead to formation of stones in the kidney, presence of blood in the urine and an urge to urinate frequently. It also make your kidney prone to various bacterial infections.

Causes
The disease is caused because of the presence of defective genes in the body, implying that this disorder is primarily hereditary. In some cases, the disease is caused by a genetic mutation. Based on the causes, it is classified into two types:

  1. Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease: This disorder causes the symptoms to appear immediately after birth, although the symptoms are delayed until adolescence. This disorder only occurs when both the parents carry the defective gene which is passed to the offspring.
  2. Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease: This disorder usually tends to occur only after the age of 30. Unlike the previous type, here only one parent needs to carry the defective gene that is passed on to the offspring.

Treatment
The treatment of polycystic kidney disease generally involves dealing with the following signs:

  1. PainChronic pain, usually in the sides of the body or the back, is a common symptom of this disorder. You can opt for pain reliving medication such as ibuprofen. If the cysts are large, then surgery is required to ease the pain.
  2. High blood pressure: High blood pressure is best controlled by a following a healthy diet and lifestyle. High blood pressure can damage the kidneys severely. Medications may also be required to control blood pressure, if it rises abnormally.

I have been taking 0.25 mg Etizolam, brand name limit for the last 1 year, 1 poll every 3 to 4 hours, so that amounts to around 1 mg per day, do not seem to have any adverse effects in my body, except I pee a lot, maybe it’s because I drink a little extra water also, but just concerned if continuing with this medicine will have any adverse effects ? Going about my day is a lot easier and normal when I am taking these pills.

Doctor kiya bar bar urin hone par alkasol ko le sakte hain or ek baat admi ko kitna bar urin hona chahiye.

Doctor kiya bar bar urin hone par alkasol ko le sakte hain or ek baat admi ko kitna bar urin hona chahiye.
That depends on the reason which can be assessed by the doctor. So ideally , go for a check up as a routine once. Let the doctor diagnose after that. Frequent urination can be a symptom for many things. Do you have any other symptoms like fever, chills etc ? passing urine 4-6 times a day is normal provided you do not suffer from any other problems.

I'm suffering from stone problem.  A 0.6mm stone in my kidney.  Please tell me what should I do?
1.Make a powdered preparation of equal quantities of the bark of three-leaved caper tree (varun), puncture pine (gokhru), thatch grass (kas) and horse gram (kulthi). Have 1 teaspoon of this powder 3-4 times a day with water. This is one of the best home remedies for kidney stones. 2..Soak 2 teaspoon of radish seeds in a glass of water, boil and reduce it to half. Strain and drink 1/2 cup of it twice a day to assist in dissolving kidney stones. 3..Take 60 grams of kidney beans. Crush these. Boil slowly for four hours in four litres of water. This liquid should be strained through fine muslin and then allowed to cool for about eight hours. Then, pour the liquid through another piece of muslin, without stirring. Drink this liquid once daily. 4.. drink plenty of water, limca and lemon soda. 5. take 2 tsf neeri syrup thrice daily 1 hr after meals. 6. follow up after 10 days.

Hello, If you want you can have homoeopathic medication which will remove your stone and is safe to take! Take homoeopathic medicine - Berberis Vulgaris Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Prevention of kidney stones may include a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes You may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: Drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. Eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, your doctor may recommend restricting foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, okra, spinach, Swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose nonanimal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. Revert me back.

Mere left kidney me 2 mm and right kidney me 5 mm ka stone hai Kya ye medicine se nikal jaye ya operation se hi niklega.

Mere left kidney me 2 mm and right kidney me 5 mm ka stone hai Kya ye medicine se nikal jaye ya operation se hi niklega.
Hello lybrate user, 2 mm stone ll pass without any problem but for 5 mm stone, u need to take medicines. Homoeopathic medicines not only dissolve kidney stones but also remove d tendency to form stones recurrently. Even after u pass both d stones there r chances that a new one ll b formed. So go for homoeopathy, u ll b better. TC
