As we all know, kidney transplant, a common treatment to kidney diseases including PKD, is an operate in which the damaged kidney will be replaced with a healthy and matching one from donor. Actually, it is hard to find a suited kidney. Therefore, they wonder whether PKD can come back after kidney transplant or not.
PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) which is a kind of genetic disorder means the kidney is injured as the unnumbered large and small cysts grow in the kidney. That is to say, in the situation of PKD, the kidney can not completely remove the excess water and waste products from body. As a consequence, the patients will feel ill because of the deposited excess water and waste products.
These are the reasons why the PKD patients are in sore need of treatment and hope that the PKD does not reappear.
Why the PKD will reappear after kidney transplant?
First at all, the cysts have a strong pollutional ability. So that, the new kidney will be polluted. Then, there will be more and more cysts developing in the kidney.
Secondly, no matter how high the matched-degree is, the human body will consider the enthetic kidney as a foreign material. Hence, the immune system will challenge the kidney. As a result, the patients have to take anti-rejection drugs in the rest of their life. Also, the kidney may be injured by the immunity.
Last, if the patients can not take a good life-style containing diet, living habit, the time of work and rest and so on, the kidney will be damaged again as the rebuilt kidney is more weaker than others.
According to this, PKD is more likely to come back after kidney failure. By the way, if the PKD patients are treated by other treatments such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Full Bath Therapy, Cycle Therapy, Acupuncture and so on, the recurrence rate of PKD will be reduced.
