PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) is a genetic condition, which can pass down your generation. The disease can cause many different sizes and shapes cysts (fluid-filled sacs) in your kidneys. Since it cannot be cured totally, some patients have the concern: what is the oldest age of patients with polycystic kidney disease?
Some facts about PKD
There are two types of the disease, ADPKD and ARPKD. Compared with the latter, the former is the most common type. With autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, problems commonly do not develop until the age of 30-50, with some people never developing any problems. The two common problems that develop are high blood pressure and kidney failure. About half of people with ADPKD develop kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant by the age of 60.
Well then, what is the oldest age of patients with PKD?
Generally speaking, there are 9% of those patients are older than 70 years. But this is just a reference. To be frank, there is no certain answer for the question. Because every patient has different illness conditions. In my opinion,, it is more significant to know how to prolong PKD patients’ life than know the specific life expectancy.

Then, how to prolong PKD patients’ life expectancy?
In the curses of the disease, patients will suffer from obvious symptoms like back pain, high blood pressure, urinary tract infection, kidney infection, blood in urine and so on. Those are due to enlarged cysts or rupture of cysts. Therefore, it is necessary to shrink multiples cysts naturally. Compared to surgery, I prefer recommending a more safe and natural treatment called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to you. The treatment not only can help relieve related symptoms, but also can expand the blood vessels around cysts, and increase the permeability o cysts wall. Eventually, cysts can be shrunk naturally.
