The Survival Rate of Polycystic Kidney Disease

The Survival Rate of Polycystic Kidney DiseasePolycystic Kidney Disease is one common kidney disorder all over the world. If left alone, it may develop into kidney failure and threaten patients' life eventually. Do you know the survival rate of PKD?

The progression of Polycystic Kidney Disease

Since ADPKD is quite more common than ARPKD, today, we mainly talk about ADPKD, which is one type of chronic kidney disease.

In the early stage, all cysts in patients' kidneys are still very small, so they won't cause any damage to kidney functioning tissues. Accordingly, patients can live with their own kidneys just like normal people. That is to say, nearly all PKD patients can live without any problem before age 20 or 30.

As kidney cysts continue to grow, patients begin to suffer from various symptoms such as back pain, high blood pressure, hematuria, urinary tract infections, high creatinine level, etc at about age 30~50. During this period of time, enlarged PKD kidney cysts begin to damage their surrounding kidney tissues or other organs. In some cases, patients may even find cysts appear in liver and pancreas.

Finally, about 50% of PKD patients may have kidney failure at about age 60. Then, patients' life expectancy may be threatened by various problems.

The survival rate for PKD patients

Although Polycystic Kidney Disease is one serious kidney disorder, it usually doesn't kill patients quickly. As kidney cysts grow slowly, most PKD patients may finally die of kidney failure. At present, this is still no research to estimate the survival rate of PKD.

If you also have Polycystic Kidney Disease, we suggest you to take prompt treatments to manage your kidney cysts and symptoms actively. Then, you can live without life-threatening complications caused by PKD successfully.
