How to Manage Skin Itching for Polycystic Kidney Disease Patients

How to Manage Skin Itching for Polycystic Kidney Disease PatientsSkin itching isn’t as common as back pain and high blood pressure for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients, but it does occur especially when PKD develops into end stage. To get rid of this bothering symptom, patients should take effective methods to manage it.

What causes itchy skin for patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease?

As more and more kidney functioning tissues are replaced by enlarged kidney cysts, kidneys will lose their ability to filter waste products and extra electrolytes. With the deposit of large molecular waste products and phosphorus in the body, patients’ skin begins to itch easily.

Effective treatments to alleviate skin itching for PKD patients

If PKD patients want to get rid of skin itching from the root, the treatments should have three basic therapeutic effects.

1. Remove extra waste product and phosphorus

2. Stop enlarged kidney cysts from damaging inherent kidney cells further

3. Try to increase kidney excretory ability

What treatments can help achieve the above goals?

To cleanse the internal environment, we would like to introduce Blood Purification. Different from simple dialysis, this therapy uses various methods to eliminate all sizes of waste products and extra electrolytes effectively and repeatedly. Once extra phosphorus and large molecular waste products are discharged out of the body, skin will stop itching immediately.

Then, what we need to do is to improve PKD patients’ overall health condition and reverse their kidney damage. In this case, we would like to introduce herbal remedies. Some herbal medicines like lalang grass rhizome and semen plantaginis are proven to be effective on shrinking kidney cysts, while some other herbal medicines such as astragalus membranaceus and Chinese rhubarb can help repair impaired kidney cells and increase kidney function level. When kidneys can do their work relatively normally, they don’t need to worry their skin problem any more.

The prescribed medicines should depend on patients’ illness condition. To know what medicines work for you, you can email your test report or illness description to or in the form below. Then, kidney experts can answer you immediately, after analyzing your medical case.
