Can Kidney Cysts in PKD Cause Vomiting

2013-09-10 09:56

kidney cysts, PKD, vomitingAs we all know, PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) is a common hereditary disease which is characterized by numerous kidney cysts growing on kidneys. With the progression of the condition, more and more symptoms or complications of PKD are likely to appear. However, can kidney cysts in PKD cause vomiting?

Well, vomiting can really be one of symptoms PKD patients are complaining about. But there is no scientific evidence that kidney cysts in PKD can cause vomiting directly. The possible causes of vomiting in PKD patients include:

-The enlargement of kidney cysts can oppress the surrounding kidney tissues, which then causes the kidneys to be ischemic and anoxic. This can directly cause fatigue and weakness. If this state of kidneys can not be relieved in time, kidney function can be impaired. As we all know, our kidneys help remove the wastes and excess fluid out of body. Now because of the damaged renal function, the wastes, toxins and excess water will build up in the body, which will cause nausea and vomiting.

-People with PKD have a 5% to 10% risk of developing an intracranial aneurysm. Some aneurysms can leak or rupture, causing symptoms such as sudden severe headache, nausea and vomiting, and pain when moving the neck. These symptoms require immediate medical attention.

Though some medications and other measures can help relieve vomiting and some other symptoms of PKD, the most important thing is to help PKD patients shrink those kidney cysts and recover renal function. Some related data shows that about a half of PKD patients will develop End Stage Renal Disease by the age of 70, in that case, patients have to experience dialysis treatment or receive a kidney transplant to maintain their lives.
