Would Polycystic Kidney Disease Kill You At Age 24

Would Polycystic Kidney Disease Kill You At Age 24If Polycystic Kidney Disease progresses into end stage, it will be life-threatening. Will PKD kill patients at age 24?

PKD is one genetic kidney disorder, so no method at present can help prevent or delay the onset of this disease. Then, enlarged kidney cysts replace more and more kidney functioning tissues. During this progression, this disease may induce more and more complications, some of which may be even quite dangerous.

In clinic, Polycystic Kidney Disease has two common types: ADPKD and ARPKD. Because different genetic factors determine the onset of ADPKD and ARPKD, they present quite different characteristics and progression.

If patients are diagnosed with ADPKD, they usually don't have any serious symptom or complication at age 24. In this case, patients can still live with their own kidneys just like normal people. That is to say, ADPKD commonly don't kill the patient, because all cysts in patient's kidneys are still very small. Our kidneys have strong capacity ability, so they can bear small kidney cysts without any problem.

If patients are tested out with ARPKD, they are more likely to be more dangerous than patients with ADPKD. Compared with ADPKD, ARPKD progresses very quickly and can cause more life-threatening complications. Most patients with ARPKD may die before age 20, so it is quite possible for these patients to die at age 24.

From the above content, we can conclude if PKD patients die at age 24, it may indicate ARPKD.

In summary, if patients are diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease, they should take effective treatments to shrink kidney cysts, preserve remaining kidney function and repair damaged kidney functioning cells. Therefore, patients can prolong their life expectancy effectively. To get an individual therapy plan, you can contact the doctor online or leave a message below.
