    The topic we are talking about today is: What is Polycystic kidney disease ?

    Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic disease. Affected by toxins both inside and outside of body, kidneys has multiple cystic lesions, which impair the intrinsic cell and damagethe kidneys. The clinical manifestations are the symptoms of enlarged kidney, proteinuria, blood in the urine, and elevated blood pressure.

    Adult polycystic kidney disease, also known as autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, is one of the most common autosomal dominant genetic diseases with an incidence of about 1:1000. The disease accounts for the third highest number of cases of end-stage renal failure worldwide. The occurrence of renal cysts begins in all areas of the nephron. From the onset of intrauterine growth, the size and number of renal cysts increase slowly with age. The size of the kidneys in the early stages of the disease may be normal or slightly increased. Progressive cystic changes disrupt the structure of the kidney and lead to chronic renal insufficiency. Renal hypertension is common and there is a great chance to progress to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

    Mainly manifested as kidney enlargement, urine protein, blood in the urine, elevated blood pressure and other symptoms. Recurrent episodes of gross hematuria, infection, large amounts of urinary protein, premature blood pressure, and premature renal failure are the main indications for poor prognosis of polycystic kidney disease.

    What is the causation of blood in the urine, urine protein, high blood pressure and edema ? Because of human body genetic defects and other various bad habits, the accumulation of toxins in the body exceeds the anti-inflammatory ability of the human body. The anti-inflammatory and inflammatory balance of human cells is constantly shifting to inflammation. Under the repeated stimulation of infection and/or injury, renal tubular epithelial cells undergo phenotypic transformation, abnormal proliferation, occlusion of renal tubules, and then transdifferentiation into cyst linings. The cells secrete a large amount of cystic fluid, causing the cyst to become larger and larger, compressing and injuring the intrinsic cells of the kidney, and thered blood cells and plasma proteins leak into the urine to form urine blood and urine protein, and clinical manifestations such as edema, hypertension, and decreased renal function occur.

    Traditional Chinese medicine believes that polycystic kidney disease is due to the deficiency of congenital kidney qi, which makes it easy for damp heat evil invading the kidney network and stay there. With time going on, further aggravation produces wet and heat poison that further blocks blood and produces stasis. The combination of damp and heat forms poison, which directly damages the kidney. there are clinical symptoms such as increased foam in the urine, blood in the urine, and elevated blood pressure.
