Is the onset of kidney cyst related to climate?
Simple renal cysts are often found by accident. Most of them are asymptomatic and usually cause symptoms when they reach 10 cm in diameter. The main symptoms are pain in the side abdomen or back. The symptoms are obvious when complications occur. If a large amount of hemorrhage in the cyst causes the cyst wall to stretch suddenly, the compression of the cyst may cause lumbar colic. When secondary infection occurs, in addition to increased pain, it may be accompanied by elevated body temperature and general malaise, generally without hematuria. Occasional compression of the cyst near the renal parenchyma may cause microscopic hematuria and sometimes high blood pressure. When the cyst is huge, a mass may appear in the waist and abdomen.
In the four seasons of the year, the climate has different characteristics, such as spring is warm, summer is hot, autumn provides dryness and cold. This is the general law of climate change, and people's adaptability to natural climate change is also very different, especially for all kinds of kidney disease patients, including polycystic kidney disease, due to the special physiological and pathological nature of the kidney, they may have a high sensitivity to climate change. " Disease in the kidney, which will get well in spring; If it is not better in the Spring, it will worsen in summer. It will lasts in autumn and starts in winter. " This fully shows that Chinese medicine has long attached great importance to the influence of the four seasons changes on kidney disease. Everything grows in spring, which is good for the recovery of kidney disease, but it is windy, so it is easy to suffer from wind evil. Summer is hot and the patients will be vulnerable to fire evil; If it is hot and humid in summer, the evil of summer-heat and dampness will easily hurt the human body. If the autumn is dry, be careful of the yin of lung and kidney due to dryness. In cold winter, kidney disease patients are prone to damage the yang.
From our clinical point of view, the hottest and coldest times of the year are likely to cause adverse changes in the condition of polycystic kidney patients, while the hot weather is likely to lead to multiple infections, such as urinary tract infections, intestinal infections, upper respiratory tract infections, etc.
