In brief: Examples include
Poly cystic kidney disease and fabry's disease.
Also, many heritable illnesses like diabetes and hypertension and high cholesterol could precipitate kidney disease. Also, bad habits running in families e.g. Unhealthy eating habits will cause obesity and increase the risk of kidney disease.
