Increased BUN/Creatinine Ratio for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Increased BUN/Creatinine Ratio for Polycystic Kidney DiseaseAs one common type of kidney disease, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is chronically progressive. With its progression, patients’ blood test may show increased BUN/creatinine ratio. What does it mean? What can patients do?

BUN/creatinine ratio increases for PKD patients

Both urea and creatinine are waste products and discharged out of the body via kidneys, while BUN is used to determine urea levels in the blood. In lab test, BUN/creatinine ratio is often used for differential diagnosis including acute kidney failure, dehydration, decline of kidney function, urinary tract obstruction, kidney disease, congestive heart failure, etc. For patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease, elevated BUN/creatinine ratio is more likely to reveal the decline of kidney function or urinary tract obstruction, due to kidney stone.

Reduced kidney function and kidney stone for Polycystic Kidney Disease

Generally speaking, most PKD patients can live with normal kidney function level in the first several decades of years. However, as kidney cysts grow both in the number and size, they will compress and damage their surrounding tissues and organs. Finally, kidney function level decreases. As for kidney stone, it is one common complication of PKD.

How to lower high BUN/creatinine ratio for patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Finding out the cause should be the first step.

If it is attributed to kidney stone, surgery or traditional Chinese medicines are recommended. Surgery can remove kidney stones directly but may cause some side effects, while TCM can dissolve kidney stones but need relatively longer time. Choose one suitable treatment to deal with your problem.

If kidney function decline is the cause, this problem must become more difficult to solve. Here, we would like to introduce Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is one innovation of TCM. With the help of osmotic devices, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidneys and work directly. For PKD patients, this therapy has three main therapeutic effects: draining sac fluid, inhibiting the secretion of sac fluid, and repairing damaged kidney cells. Once kidney function level increases, can BUN/creatinine ratio come down.
