How Is Autosomal Dominant PKD Treated  Autosomal dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease, also called ADPKD, is a common type of PKD. Generally, children of parents who have ADPKD will have a 50% chance of getting this disease. If untreated timely, nearly half of patients with PKD will have renal failure by age 60. Therefore, all of them are concerned “how is autosomal dominant PKD treated”.

Then, high blood pressure, blood urine, proteinuria and high creatinine level will occur. These complications all can make patients’ condition worse.
