About The Polycystic Kidney Disease Charity
We support an estimated 70,000 children and adults affected by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) in the UK. PKD is the most common inherited kidney disease worldwide and causes kidney failure. It is characterised by the development of multiple cysts which overwhelm normal kidney tissue. Polycystic kidneys can grow as large as rugby balls and weigh 100 times heavier than healthy kidneys. Other organs, notably the liver, can be damaged by PKD. Brain aneurysms are more common in PKD and can result in premature death from cerebral haemorrhage. In a rare childhood form, PKD results in 1 in 3 babies losing their lives before birth. We raise public awareness of PKD and are a strong collective voice for affected individuals and families. PKD is under-researched so we also raise funds for basic and clinical research studies.
