Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a progressive and debilitating kidney disease. This disease is characterized by numerous cysts formed in the kidneys. The common symptoms of PKD contain:

● Occult blood in urine (Hematuria, cola-colored urine)

● High blood pressure

● Cysts in other organs

● Urinary tract infections

The major cause of PKD is hereditary factors, although it has also been linked to other factors, such as gene mutation. PKD will run in the families. PKD is a progressive disease that develops slowly in the early stage often over the course of decades. However, it can develop very fast when symptoms occurred. Most patients will advance into kidney failure if no effective treatment is received to control the growth of kidney cysts. In the following articles, I will mainly introduce the symptom of occult blood in urine for PKD patients.

Most patients do not feel their disease is a concern until they find occult blood in urine, which makes them to go for medical help. There are mainly two reasons which can lead to occult blood in urine.

1. Cysts bleeding: with the continuous growth of kidney cysts, when they are 4cm larger in diameter, there is high possibility that they are going to rupture. Most patients have cysts rupture even without provocation. When cysts break, the red blood cells from the blood vessel will go out of body with urine. Cyst bleeding is the main reason of occult blood in urine occurs.

2. The damage of kidney units: the continuous growth of kidney cysts will damage kidney units. Gradually, kidneys will lose its function and the glomerular filtration membrane and the renal tubules will be damaged. When the filtration membrane and the renal tubules are damaged, the red blood cells will filter out, while the renal tubules can not also reabsorb them. Thus, these red blood cells will go out of body with urine.

To deal with occult blood in urine, patients should not only take hemostatics, which is temporary.
To deal with the problem, a natural therapy is needed. Surgeries are not proper because so many cysts are involved, experts have found a natural therapy-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. If you need more information about it, please contact our online
