    2015-02-10 14:39| Font Size A A A

    Causes of No EPO from Polycystic Kidney Disease PatientsPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder which is featured by multiple fluid-filled sacs on the kidneys. With the type of kidney disease, patients may suffer from numerous conditions and discomforts. One of the performances is the lack of EPO (erythropoietin), which can bring more symptoms. Well then, what are the causes of no EPO in PKD?

    As we all know, our kidneys are important organs which are endowed with numerous functions. One of significant kidney function is to produce erythropoietin which can make more red blood cells. Normally, red blood cells use oxygen to change the glucose we get from food into energy. When there is no enough red blood cells, it indicates that less oxygen is sent to the cells. As a result, insufficient oxygen will induce organs and tissues have less energy to function adequately. For patients with polycystic kidney disease, they may suffer from severe anemia due to lack of EPO. Because Polycystic Kidney Disease itself can cause the following the condition which can affect the erythropoietin.

    For PKD patients, their enlarged kidney cysts will gradually oppress the surrounding tissues of kidneys, which can induce kidney ischemic and anoxic. If the condition can not be relived in time, impaired kidney function will happen, leading to anemia and other complications.

    Multiple cysts on the kidneys can damage the kidney tissues and decrease renal function. Along with the decreased renal function, kidneys may produce little or no EPO, leading to anemia.

    Through the above analysis, we can see that the cysts on the kidneys are the root cause of no EPO for PKD patients. Therefore, the fundamental treatment is also accordingly to shrink these cysts and improve renal function.
