Chest Pressure and Shortness of BreathAs a common genetic disorder, PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) has become one of main causes for kidney failure. With the loss of kidney function, various symptoms will appear. Here you will learn about not only causes for chest pressure and shortness of breath also the corresponding treatments.

Causes for chest pressure and shortness of breath

The cyst enlargement will oppress the surrounding tissues and gradually impair kidney function. Once kidneys can not work normally to remove excessive fluid out of body, swelling will occur. Chest pain and shortness of breath can be caused by the excessive fluid in chest and lungs.

Usually, chest pressure and shortness of breath happens at the late stage of PKD. When condition develops to kidney failure, more obvious complications including heart attack. Most heart attacks occur when a blood clot in the coronary artery blocks the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart muscle, sometimes resulting in permanent damage to the heart. The most common symptom of a heart attack is chest pressure and shortness of breath.

How to treat chest pressure and shortness of breath for PKD patients?

If it is caused by the excessive fluid, dialysis treatment can help relieve to a certain degree. If it is caused by the heart problem, from the information mentioned above, we know that dealing with the blood is something necessary to do. What is more, most kidney disease patients have a bad blood circulation.

Chinese medicine therapies including foot bath, medicated bath, oral Chinese herbal medicine, circle therapy, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy have obvious effects on expanding blood vessels, improving blood circulation and removing blood stasis, thus protecting heart and other organs and improving ischemia and anoxic state.

While Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is expected to play more special functions like anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, offering nutrients for kidneys and promoting DNA replication of damaged inherent cells to protect kidney function; play functions of decreasing lining cells’ ability to produce cyst fluid, increasing the permeability of cyst wall and changing inside and outside pressure difference of cyst fluid to gradually shrink cyst, and we do believe that that is what PKD patients want most.

If you are not satisfied with your current PKD patients and trying your best to avoid kidney failure, you are worth learning about Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
