When Did Patients With ADPKD Need Kidney Transplant Or Dialysis

2018-12-23 11:34

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a genetic condition that causes cysts to grow in the kidneys. As these cysts gradually enlarge, kidney function falls, which results in kidney failure for many people. In the UK, ADPKD affects an estimated 70,000 people, but not everyone with ADPKD will experience kidney failure.

If the kidneys are not filtering the blood properly, excess fluid and toxins collect in the body. This has harmful effects on all systems of the body. If you have kidney failure, you’ll need dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive. Dialysis or a transplant are known as renal replacement therapy and replace some of the work your own kidneys can no longer do.

On average, people with ADPKD start renal replacement therapy aged 55 years, but this differs from person to person. Of all the adults in the UK starting renal replacement therapy, approximately 1 in 14 (7%) have ADPKD.
