What is polycystic kidney disease (PKD)?

PKD is a genetically inherited disease that is characterized by metabolic defects, renal cyst growth, progressive chronic kidney disease, and other serious complications. It affects more than half a million people in the United States and currently has no cure.

We focus on education for patients, practitioners, and other researchers while empowering people to advocate for their health and raise awareness for those living with PKD and kidney disease.
