What About The Prognosis Of Polycystic Kidney Disease

What About The Prognosis Of Polycystic Kidney Disease Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic kidney disease, and the cysts in patient’s kidney will progress slowly. While kidney cysts will damage patient’s kidney structure in this process, and they can cause kidney failure eventually. How about the prognosis of PKD patient?

PKD is divided into ADPKD and ARPKD. ARPKD refers to autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease, and ADPKD refers to autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.

The medical experience in having kidney transplant for patient with ARPKD is rare, and there are many problems need to be solved in accepting this therapy. While dialysis is a common choice in prolong ARPKD patient’s lifetime.

But all in all, patient with ARPKD will have a bad prognosis.

For example, if patient has high blood pressure, and if his medical treatment and care have not control this complication well, patient’s disease will progress much faster. Besides, patient’s diet and life habits can also affect patient’s condition very obviously.
