My father has Polycystic Kidney Disease, and his latest report shows creatinine 10, present 300ml~400ml urine output for 24 hours and proteinuria ++. The doctor told me that my father has lost the corticomedullary differentiation. Now, he is going through hemodialysis. How to improve his condition? Please, tell me.
From your father’s test reports, we can know his disease is already in end stage renal failure. The reason why his corticomedullary differentiation has lost is that the big cysts take place of the normal renal tissues gradually. His creatinine is so high and he also has proteinuria. All of these remind us of the severity of his condition. Fortunately, he still has 300~400ml urine output. This means part of his kidney function is good. If treated in time, it is possible for him to stop dialysis.
Firstly, correct blood purification is needed to cleanse excess wastes and toxins from the body completely. In fact, hemodialysis is the most common kidney replacement therapy. There are some other blood purification technologies that can purify blood more fully and prepare a clean internal environment for the following treatment.
Secondly, we must try to repair part of your father’s kidney cells. Because his disease has developed end stage, some kidney cells are just damaged but some others are necrotic. At present, what we can do is to make those damaged kidney cells alive again, while we can do nothing for the necrotic cells. Don’t worry! Our kidneys are great organs. Once 15% of kidney function recovers to work again and maintains stable, your father can get rid of dialysis successfully.
Lastly, a healthy diet is also important to improve patient’s condition. If you still have some questions about the detailed treatment or diet, you can send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or consult online.
