Stage 2 Polycystic Kidney Disease with Normal GFRIn stage 2 Polycystic Kidney Disease, even though the PKD cysts increase quickly in size, they are not enough big to cause kidney damage. This is why PKD patients can still have normal GFR and kidney function at stage 2.

Stage 2 Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic disorder that progresses slowly. In PKD cyst, there is one type of specific cell, called cystic epithelial lining cell. It is responsible for secreting sac fluid to cause the continuous enlargement of kidney cysts. If left uncontrolled, more and more cysts develop in the kidneys, resulting in kidney damage gradually.

According to different PKD cyst sizes and GFR levels, Polycystic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages. Stage 2 PKD is also called growth stage. In this stage, kidney cyst grows very fast and some symptoms such as high blood pressure and back pain occur one by one.
