What is Polycystic Kidney Disease?

"Polycystic Kidney Disease or PKD refers to the outgrowing cysts on the kidneys. This condition occurs due to genetic factors, which are mainly based on the presence of faulty genes which one receives from one or both of the parents.It hampers the functioning of the kidneys due to the sudden growth of the cysts on the outer part this results in the enlarged size of the kidneys.

PKD can lead to the growth of the cysts on the other parts of the body , such as the liver, ovaries, etc. It is a life threatening disease which results in high blood pressure and kidney failure. However Ayurvedic treatment for PKD has some lifestyle changes and prevention tips that can help fight off damage to the kidneys.

Allopathic Treatments can only suppress the complications but may not fully cure it which arises during PKD. Several medications can be taken to get relief from the pain caused by the cysts but a better approach is still required like seeking treatment in Ayurveda to get permanent relief from the disease

Causes of Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Throughout your life, the genetic mutation that results in polycystic kidney disease may occasionally occur on its own without being passed on to you by either of your parents.

ADPKD is carried on by a mutation in one of the genes. Most of the people having the condition ADPKD have this mutation in one of their genes, either PKD1 or PKD2. ADPKD is inherited in families and goes from generation to generation.

This suggests that there's a high chance that one of your parents either has PKD1 or PKD2 gene mutation even if they haven't been diagnosed. It just takes only a single mutant copy of the gene to cause ADPKD. It is almost always passed on to an ADPKD parent's offspring.

In ayurvedic treatment, the cysts are targeted by examining the underlying causes of their genes. If poor eating habits or lifestyle choices are the root of the problem, then that is how the issue is addressed.

A particular gene's alteration, or mutation, is the cause of ADPKD. One of these genes—PKD1 or PKD2—changes in the majority of ADPKD patients. ADPKD does not skip a generation and is inherited in families.

This suggests that even if your parents haven't been diagnosed, there's a strong likelihood that one of them carries a mutation in the PKD1 or PKD2 gene. To have ADPKD, a single mutated copy of the gene is sufficient. It is usually inherited by the child of an ADPKD parent.

The cysts in Ayurveda treatment are targeted by analyzing the reasons behind its development. If the issue is caused due to poor lifestyle or dietary habits, the problem is focused upon accordingly.

Types Of Polycystic Kidney Disease

Once the experience of this type of disease is discovered then the natural cure for the polycystic kidney disease is produced.

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is a form of polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Because such a kind of PKD is autosomal dominant, the person who is affected only receives the defective genes from one parent. While cysts are frequently formed from birth, ADPKD may show signs and symptoms that typically start in late adulthood. Type 1 and type 2 autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease are distinguished based on the genetic aetiology and mode of mutation. Kidney failure is typically more likely to occur in those with type 1 ADPKD than in those with type 2 ADPKD.

Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease

It is rare for this type of PKD to occur, and it is known to be very fatal at an early age. Usually, the indications and instances are noticeable since birth or in the first few months of birth. Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease can cause infantile PKD, which is when a child loses kidney functioning while still in the womb. This kind of kidney disease can be identified early in there childhood, unlike ADPKD.
