WHAT IS PKD?

POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASE

An inherited disorder which clusters of cysts develop in the kidneys. The cysts in PKD are non cancerous sacs containing water-like fluid. They can grow very large. Many people with this condition have kidney failure by age 60.

Treatment can help, but this condition can't be cured. PKD requires a medical diagnosis. Lab tests or imaging always required. Symptoms include high blood pressure, back or side pain, and a swollen abdomen.
