At this time, Dialysis is needed to replace part of kidney function and maintain patients’ basic life. If doesn’t take any kidney repair treatment but refuses to begin dialysis, will be have: Loss of appetite, Swelling or edema, Constipation, Changes in breathing, Fatigue and tiredness, Disorientation.

Besides, if too much waste products such as creatinine and urea acid deposit in the body, they will attack kidneys as well as other organs like heart. This may even lead to death.

Does this mean dialysis is the only solution for end-stage Polycystic Kidney Disease? Of course not. If you are suffering from advanced PKD but still have some urine, some treatments can help you avoid dialysis.

Since low kidney function is the main factor that urges you to start dialysis, the effective treatment should be the one that can not only repair the damaged kidney cells but also shrink PKD cysts.
