This support group provides a forum for patients, family and friends to come together to learn more about polycystic kidney disease and share personal stories and discuss transplant process and current drugs and research for a cure.
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD), the most common inherited life-threatening disease, affects more than 600,000 Americans and an estimated 12.5 million people worldwide — regardless of gender, age, race or ethnic origin. PKD appears in two forms — autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), which is the most common and affects one in 400 to 500 adults, and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD), which is more rare and affects one in 10,000 people at a younger age, including infants and children.
Meets the first Tuesday of the month.
