Urine abnormalities: the main manifestation of proteinuria or hematuria, is one of the symptoms of early appearance. The most frequent proteinuria is associated with the barrier function of the glomerulus. Hematuria is a major factor in the finding of polycystic kidney disease in patients with polycystic kidney disease. Also includes no urine, frequent urination, urgency, urinary pain, hematuria, oliguria and polyuria.
Anemia: most patients with polycystic kidney disease experience a light weight anemia process and are often accompanied by nocturia. This symptom is usually associated with decreased renal production of erythropoietin and decreased renal function. But some people think that anemia is due to other causes, thus ignoring polycystic kidney disease. Therefore, anemia symptoms must not be ignored.
Renal pain: pain in the renal region is an important symptom of polycystic kidney disease. It is often oppressive or dull pain in the waist and back. It also has severe pain and sometimes abdominal pain. Pain can be aggravated by physical activity, long walking time, and prolonged sitting, which can be alleviated after bed rest. Renal hemorrhage, stone movement or infection are also causes of sudden pain.
Abdominal mass: when the kidney increases to a certain extent, it can feel a different size in the unilateral or bilateral upper abdomen, and it will move with the breathing, accompanied by tenderness accompanied by infection.
Both sides can reach abdominal masses of polycystic kidney patients, about 50%-80%, unilateral about 15%-30%.
Hypertension: high blood pressure is one of the more frequent symptoms of polycystic kidney disease, accounting for about 50%-60%. It usually occurs before renal failure, accompanied by headache and dizziness, and is closely related to the hyperfunction of renin angiotensin system.
