Who has heard of Polycystic Kidney Disease?
I have never heard of it before and all of a sudden there are tons of commercials on the radio for it being a common disease with 'walks' for it.
Polycystic Kidney Disease is one of the reasons my mother passed 4 1/2 years ago. It is a disease that attacks the kidneys causing cysts to develop all over them. The kidneys enlarge, lose their efficiency; and, can eventually cause death. If someone in your family has had it, check checked as it is an inherited disease.
A friend's mother was diagnosed with it, but honestly I know little about it
Polycystic kidney disease is the most common genetic kidney disease that there is. It's passed down from generation to generation. If one of your parents has it, you have 50% chance of having it. If both of your parents have it, you have a 100% chance of having it. There are a couple of different versions, but the most common one is polysomal dominant PKD. There is no cure for the disease. In advanced stages, your only options are dialysis or a kidney transplant. My great-grandmother, my grandfather, and two of my uncles, and one of my cousins have died either directly from it or as a result of other complcations that were related to it.
