Polycystic Kidney Disease And Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
My father had polycystic kidney disease. I have a 50 % chance of getting it, but I do not have it and I am at the age where it would have shown. Is there a higher chance I could get polycystic ovarian syndrome as a child of a father who had polycystic k
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Totally unrelated: Apart from the word connection these are totally unrelated conditions. Having 1 does not lead to the other. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) is a complex disorder affecting the ovaries which may cause irregular cycles, fertility or metabolic problems. Polycystic kidney disease is genetic disorder and comes in two versions, both causing kidney problems, which may end in kidney failure / dialysis.See 2 more doctor answers
Here are some...: PKD is overwhelmingly a inherited disorder as autosomal inheritance to affect adults who usually become symptomatic at age 30-45... or as autosomal recessive to affect the young, or acquired in late age such as 50-70.

Inherited problem: Polycystic kidney disease is something you inherit from a parent. If you know you have it, you will want to learn as much as you can about monitoring and protecting your kidney function. You will also want to learn about the treatment of kidney failure. Many people with polycystic kidneys receive kidney transplants - which is probably the best of all options when kidneys aren't working. Lgromkomd.
NO: Parapelvic cysts do not suggest polycystic kidney disease. Parapelvic cysts are rather common in occurrence and incidence increases with age.
Consistency: Make healthy decisions: low sodium diet, exercise, no tobacco, and be consistent. Take prescribed medications, control blood pressure, avoid all nsaids, if diabetic manage it well, and like everyone it helps to have a little bit of good luck too. Get a nephrologist (kidney doctor) who will look for ways to slow/prevent loss of kidney function, and if needed prepare for end stage kidney disease.
Yes, but......: Testing for this disease is safe and simple but beware of what you ask for. Knowing that you have polycystic kidney disease will make it difficult or expensive to obtain life and health insurance. Best to get these issues under control first as early diagnosis (before renal insufficiency) offers no benefit. Knowing that you have the gene prior to having children is useful for family planning.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: As the name implies, "autosomal dominant" indicates genetic pattern of spread to children. In this case, the affected person need only pass one of two genes to his/her child for them to be affected wight he condition.
No straight answer: If your kidney function remains preserved, no effect. If the kidney function declines and you wind up on dialysis, the life expectancy becomes more consistent with what people on dialysis get. And that can be pretty good if everything remains ideal. At some point kidney transplant may be an attractive option if there is no contraindication to the surgery which is involved in transplant.
Multi vs poly kidney: Multicystic kidney is usually a developmental anomaly of the kidney, usually unilateral and is due to the renal tissue not connecting to the developing urogenital tissue. Usually the kidney does not function, and presents during birth or early childhood. Polycystic kidneys are inherited and usually are functional but eventually will cause progressive renal failure depending on the severity.See 2 more doctor answers
See below: The current diagnostic criteria to detect cyst in the kidney is by ultrasound, however this is not a 100% accurate way as very small cysts can be missed. Ct scan can detect cysts which are smaller like 1 mm. There are no diagnostic criteria dveloped for ct scan yet. In case a young kidney donor wants to donote, but make sure he/she doesnot have the disease, there are genetic tests available.
See below: Polycystic kidney disease is a inherited disorder and in your fetus case called autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. Cysts are fluid filled cavities in the kidney. Your doctor will consult a pediatrician/pediatric nephrologist to decide the next steps.
PKD: Adjust diet significantly. Avoid saturated fats. Minimize animal protein to 30 grams per day. Minimize salt. Avoid caffeine. Drink 4 liters of fluid per day. Achieve ideal body weight. Do not smoke. Control blood pressure to 130/80. Avoid trauma. Avoid infection. Soy and omega 3 can help daily.See 1 more doctor answer
Here are some...: On average, some 40% of patients with PKD, by age 60, will not have kidney failure, which is the worst risk to life. But, a basket of gifts from healthy lifestyle without overindulgence + available good medical advice + willingness to cope with reality, certainty, & uncertainty + hope to get kidney transplant will render patients the best possible help and hope.

Is there a name for someone that has multiple cysts on all organs and also has polycystic kidney disease? And what is the outlook? Thankyou
Polycystic kidney: Polycystic kidney is a genetic disease, inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. The kidney dominates with multiple cysts and organ enlargement. Cysts appear in the liver, pancreas, and brain. Vascular aneurysms are present in about five percent of individuals. There is no special name for the affected person. Close medical care is essential.See 1 more doctor answer

Taking tolvaptan can help but with side effectSee 1 more doctor answer
