PKD discussed in this article refers to ADPKD (Autosomal Dominant PKD) or adult PKD. This form of PKD is not to be confused with ARPKD (Autosomal Recessive PKD) or infantile PKD.

Who is affected by Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Autosomal Dominant PKD is a hereditary disease which affect both men and women equally. If one of the parent has PKD, the children have 50% chance of inheriting the disorder.

Therefore, couples need to consider the possible impact of PKD when considering marriage and planning a family. A diagnosis of Autosomal Dominant PKD doesn’t mean that having children should be entirely avoided. You can talk with our doctors, and they are glad to provide you some advice about genetic consulting services and possibilities of genetic screening.

Prognosis of Polycystic Kidney Disease

Prognosis is affected by many factors such as the patient’s age of onset, severity of symptoms and treatment history. In general, patients with ADPKD do not see any symptoms. About half of them develop Kidney Failure at the age of 50 to 60. Yet, if they can be well treated, they are likely to avoid dialysis.

Treatment options for Polycystic Kidney Disease

-Control high blood pressure and hematuria. When these symptoms occur, patients should be concerned and need immediate treatment. Taking certain medicines is necessary but you should choose medicines that won’t cause kidney damage.

-Improve kidney function. This is the key of preventing Kidney Failure. In that case, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. It is very beneficial for improving blood circulation and protect renal function.
