The Average Life Expectancy of ARPKD

The Average Life Expectancy of ARPKDARPKD is the abbreviation of autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease, and it is the rare form of PKD. Because it usually occurs in baby and children, their parents quite concern the average life expectancy of ARPKD patients.


Patients’ ARPKD is inherited from their parents, so the onset of this disease is usually in babyhood. Since it is autosomal recessive, nearly all of patients’ parents don’t have a same illness history. Therefore, most patients are found to have this disease, when they have severe symptoms.

The average lifespan of ARPKD

In severe cases, patients diet quickly after birth. Only if ARPKD is relatively mild, can patients live to childhood or adulthood. During this period of time, patients’ kidneys fail to work gradually and more and more life-threatening complications appear. From this point, we can know the average life expectancy of ARPKD is shorter than 20 years old.

What can we do to prolong these patients’ life expectancy?

If patients are in babyhood and their illness condition is very severe, we can do nothing to improve their health condition. If their illness condition is not so bad or they are enough old to take medical therapies, some methods indeed can help improve these patients’ health condition and prolong their lifespan.

On one hand, some medications and treatments can help control ARPKD complications. For example, ACEI and ARB can help control high blood pressure and antibiotics can help manage infections. On the other hand, some other treatments such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, traditional Chinese medicine and Hot Compress Therapy can help deal with PKD kidney cysts.

The treatment option should depend on patients’ illness condition. If your baby or you are suffering from this disease, you can consult the doctor online to develop a correct treatment plan.
