What Is Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Polycystic Kidney Disease means the kidneys have outgrowing cysts on it. It is a genetic condition, the presence of which is mostly based because of the faulty genes one receives through one or both of the parents. The growth of the cysts on the outer part results in the enlarged size of the kidneys and hampers the kidney function.

PKD also allows the cysts to grow on the other parts, such as the liver, ovaries, etc. The disease can threaten your life to an extent by way of high blood pressure and kidney failure. Along with pkd treatment in Ayurveda, some lifestyle changes and prevention tips can also help fight off damage to the kidneys.

Since it is mostly inherited, the allopathic doctors have only ways to suppress the complications that arise along with it but may not completely cure it. Yes, you can have the medications to get relief from the pain resulting because of stretching of the cysts. Still, you would need a viable approach, such as polycystic kidney disease treatment in Ayurveda, to get over it completely.

What Are The Causes Of Polycystic Kidney Disease?

During 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.

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 implies that even if your parents have not received a diagnosis, it is highly probable that one of them also possesses a mutation in the PKD1 or PKD2 gene. To have ADPKD, a single mutated copy of the gene is sufficient. It is nearly usually inherited by the child of an ADPKD parent.

The cysts in ayurveda treatment are targeted by analysing the reasons it holds 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

The polycystic kidney disease natural cure is formulated once the type of disease being experienced is detected.

  • Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease
  • Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is a prevalent form of polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Because this kind of PKD is autosomal dominant, the affected person only receives the defective genes from one parent. While cysts are frequently present since 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 manifest, and it is known to be fatal at an early age. Usually, the indications and manifestations are noticeable at birth or in the first few months of life. Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease can cause infantile PKD, which is when a child loses kidney function while still in the womb. This kind of kidney disease can be identified early in childhood, unlike ADPKD.

    Sunny Arora

    Hi, my name is Sunny Arora. Two months back, I went for a regular health check-up and doctors told me that I had enlarged kidneys and asked me to go for further tests. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease. The disease was in an early stage, so that was kind of a good news for me at least. I started few medications such as ACE inhibitors, however, the side-effects were a hassle for me. I discontinued that treatment and started looking for herbal treatments. I got to know about Karma Ayurveda and consulted the doctors. They gave me few herbal medicines and also advised me on a renal-friendly diet. After few months, my kidney health improved greatly and the size of the kidneys also returned to normal. Would like to convey my huge thanks to Karma Ayurveda



    Hi, Karina here and I want to thank Karma Ayurveda for my mom’s treatment for PKD. The treatment was all-natural and the diet prescribed by Dr. Puneet improved the kidney health of my mom significantly. Right from staff to treatment procedures, everything about Karma Ayurveda is just about perfect.



    My name is Rachin, 51 years old. I had an ultrasound few months back, as I was troubled by a consistently mild pain around my abdomen. The test results confirmed me having PKD. That got me worried. I checked out a local nephrologist and he prescribed me few medicines. However, those drugs didn’t really suit me. One of my friends suggested me to go for an ayurvedic treatment. I read more about the herbal treatment and came across Karma Ayurveda YT channel. I booked an appointment and started my treatment. The ayurvedic medicines prescribed worked like magic and my abdomen pain also eased down completely. I hope to completely recover from this disease soon.



    My father-in-law had kidney infection symptoms for some time. Along with this, he developed migraine kind of headaches as well. A regular health check-up led to the discovery of PKD. Apparently, all these symptoms were linked to PKD. Doctors advised us few medications such as ACE inhibitors, however, they gave temporary relief only. After consulting few other doctors and not getting satisfactory results, we decided to check out Karma Ayurveda, after one of my friends suggested that hospital. Their treatment method consisted primarily of Ayurvedic herbs. Those herbs worked pretty well and now my father-in-law’s kidneys are working fine and the infections are gone too. Thanks Karma Ayurveda.



    Hi, I am Paramjit from Shimla. I was troubled with frequent kidney infections. My family doctor advised me few tests and I was diagnosed with PKD. Since I rarely take any allopathic medicines due to allergies, my family searched for an herbal treatment for my disease. We came across the website of Karma Ayurveda and visited the hospital the next day. The doctors were friendly and after listening to my symptoms, gave me a combination of ayurvedic herbs and a curated diet. After following the course for two months, I saw a marked improvement in my health. Kidney infections are a thing of the past. Other symptoms have also eased down.



    My name is Aisha and my kid was diagnosed with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease. He often complained of mild abdominal pain. Since he is just a little kid, we weren’t willing for going for allopathic medicines. Then, my friend Sheena advised me to visit Karma Ayurveda, as the treatment here is completely ayurvedic. I took my kid there and started the treatment. After few months, his abdominal pain was completely gone. The functioning of his kidneys has also improved a lot now.
