Will PKD Damage A Transplanted Kidney

2013-11-19 15:04

Will PKD Damage A Transplanted KidneyWith the continuous expansion of sac-fluid cysts, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) can damage kidney inherent cells gradually. When almost all of kidney function is lost, kidney transplant may be needed. Since PKD is one inherited disease, will it damage a transplanted kidney?

Firstly, learn more about the onset of PKD.

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one kidney disorder associated with abnormal genes. In most cases, PKD appears in one family from generation to generation, because PKD is inherited. However, in some cases, PKD patients say there is no other people in their family having this disease. This may indicate the onset of their PKD is contributed to gene mutation.

In conclusion, abnormal genes determine sac-fluid cysts form in kidneys. Since no specific treatment can normalize gene deficiency, PKD can’t be cured completely at present.

Secondly, make clear when PKD patients need to do kidney transplant.

Kidney transplant is one treatment option for kidney failure patients. Generally speaking, PKD patients are recommended to place in kidney transplant list when their kidney function declines to 20% or less. At that moment, numerous kidney cysts or even up to several hundreds develop in both kidneys.

Thirdly, know what will happen after kidney transplant.

Many kidney failure patients are worried about that their kidney disease will appear in their transplanted kidney. In clinic, FSGS and IgA Nephropathy both has a high recurrence rate after kidney transplant, while fortunately, PKD is one condition that rarely occurs in transplanted kidney. However, it doesn’t mean all PKD patients can get recovery after transplant, as rejection reaction may cause kidney failure again.

Finally, remember kidney transplant isn’t your only choice.

If you are also suffering from kidney failure due to PKD, remember you still have other treatment options other than kidney transplant. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is one natural treatment that can both shrink all kidney cysts and repair damaged but not necrotic kidney cells effectively. If you want to live healthy with PKD, you can leave a message below, so kidney experts here can tell you whether you are the candidate to this therapy.
