    Can Diuretics Treat Polycystic Kidney Disease

    2014-08-24 03:21| Font Size A A A

    Can Diuretics Treat Polycystic Kidney DiseasePolycystic Kidney Disease is an inherent disorder and characterized by the multiple cysts around the kidneys. How to teat this kidney disease is one of urgent tissues for patients with PKD. Well then, can diuretics treat it?

    PKD is especially dangerous because it can cause liver cysts and problems with blood vessels in the heart and brain in addition to causing kidney malfunction. PKD can also cause blood in the urine, frequent urinary tract infections, high blood pressure, kidney stones, swelling and so on.

    In order to control these symptoms, doctors sometimes may prescribe diuretics to you. A diuretic is any substance that promotes the production of urine. In medicine, diuretics are used to treat heart failure, liver cirrhosis, water poisoning and certain kidney disease. As a matter of fact, diuretics are helpful to control the symptoms rather than solve the root problem, namely kidney damage.

    As the mentioned above, high blood pressure and swelling are the common symptoms in PKD. Fortunately, diuretics can be prescribed to treat:

    High blood pressure--sustained high force of blood flow against artery walls.

    Swelling-- discharge the extra fluid through increasing urine output.

    Hypercalcemia--excess calcium levels in the blood.

    Diabetes insipidus--water in the body is improperly removed from the circulatory system by the kidneys.
