PKDnetwork is a community of people who are dedicated to increasing the awareness of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). Through increased awareness, collaboration and information-sharing, our mission is to improve the future outcomes for individuals with polycystic kidney disease.
Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic disease (passed from an affected parent to their child) causing uncontrolled growth of cysts in the kidney eventually leading to kidney failure. It affects all racial and ethnic groups equally. (Source: https://pkdcure.org/what-is-pkd/)
