I was born with PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) a genetic disease that causes hundreds of cysts to grow on my kidneys and liver (along with over 12.5 million people worldwide). Over half of my family also has PKD whom have died fro it as early as 35 years old. It can cause excruciating pain and leads to kidney failure in 1/2 of all cases. For example, in the United States, there are more persons with PKD than the combined
number of those with cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, Down’s syndrome,
sickle cell anemia, and Huntington’s disease! In fact, 600,000 Americans and 12.5 million
people worldwide are estimated to have PKD, making it the most common life-threatening
genetic disease. It is two times more common than multiple sclerosis and 20 times more
common than cystic fibrosis.
Information from the PKD Foundation should be reviewed with your physician if you have one or more of these common ADPKD symptoms:
High blood pressure
A family history of kidney disease
Heart problems or strokes
Kidney stones
Frequent urinary tract infections
Constant or intermittent pain in the back, side or stomach areas
Blood in the urine http://walkforpkd.kintera.org/faf/search/searchTeamPart.asp?ievent=1067894&lis=1&kntae1067894=4562B17A8384445591C222C3A1D83DD2&team=5513518
