How to protect kidneys well for PKD patients?

Nephrectomy is a major operation, which has a lot of risks, such as bleeding, problems with the heart or circulation, injury to other organs, infection, the wound reopening, etc. If you could reduce renal cysts and stop them from growing in early stage, it is possible to avoid this surgery. Here we recommend you to try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

It is a little different from traditional Chinese medicine, because it is not oral-taking, but external application of herbal medicine. The active ingredients of medicine can be transported into polycystic kidneys to take effect. This treatment can restrain the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the growth. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will become small. The earlier you start treatment, the more kidney function you will protect, and the less possibility for you to avoid dialysis, kidney transplant and surgeries.
