How is Short Breath Caused by PKD

How is short breath caused by PKD? PKD is indicated by large amount of cysts which are enlarging and increasing. There are many symptoms caused by PKD such as swelling, high blood pressure, anemia, and so on. Besides, shortness of breath is a common symptom in PKD, which makes patients very uncomfortable and affect daily life.

As we all know, enlarged cysts can oppress surrounding tissues and destroy kidney function. In this case, kidney can not filter fluids like before which leads to water and sodium retention. Then swelling in body happens. Not only limbs and skins but also the inner organs are full of fluids. This can cause pulmonary edema leading to short breath.

Another reason for short breath is metabolic acidosis. Wastes and toxins are accumulated in body instead of being eliminated into urine. It can cause metabolic acidosis which can aggravate shortness of breath. Besides, anemia also can cause short breath, which is a common symptom of PKD. With lots of red blood cells leaking out of body, patients may feel fatigue, weakness as well as short breath.

In order to treat short breath, the fundamental method is to repair kidney damage and recover kidney function. Micro-Chinese Osmotherapy can get this effect. Active constituents of Chinese medicine can enter into cysts to inhibit the secretion of fluid. Waste fluid and toxins can be removed out, which can alleviate edema. Hence, shortness of breath can be treated very effectively. High blood pressure and blood urine are also get alleviated well.
