PKD Charity

PKD Charity

About 70,000 adults and children in the UK have Polycystic Kidney Disease or PKD – life-threatening inherited conditions that can cause renal (kidney) failure and affect other organs in the body. The majority affected have the common form, Autosomal Dominant PKD or ADPKD, the world’s most commonly inherited kidney disease. Around 2,000 have the rare, sometimes lethal form, Autosomal Recessive PKD or ARPKD.We support those affected, their families and carers, with information, help and understanding. We raise awareness and fund research into the causes of PKD, with the hope of discovering treatments and a cure.
