Prognosis Of Polycystic Kidney Disease: How Long Can Patient With PKD Live

Prognosis Of Polycystic Kidney Disease: How Long Can Patient With PKD Live Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic kidney disease, and the cysts in patient’s kidneys will grow gradually, which will cause patient to have kidney failure eventually. And how long can patient with PKD live?

As we know, different patients have different conditions, and we can not conclude how long can someone live blindly. In fact, there are some points that patient with PKD needs to know, which is helpful for them to judge his prognosis.

1. Patient with PKD will have multiple cysts from his birth, but most patients do not have any symptom at this point.

2. Patient often has symptom after he is thirty years old, and the later patient’s disease appears, the worse patient’s symptoms will be.

3. After patient has symptoms, the average time before patient’s kidney disease progresses into kidney failure is about ten years. But that also has big difference due to the symptoms that patient has.

On the other hand, patient’s prognosis can be also affected by many factors, and if patient has done well in these aspects, PKD patient’s prognosis will be improved obviously.
