As a human being, when we diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), we always feel depressed and then eager to know how long can we live.
First, I would like to explain that PKD is a hereditary disease and it is possible for us to stop it from appearing, but we can do something to delay its occurrence or control its development.
PKD is a genetic disease, so once you found one of your family members has this disease, and then you should go to do examination to find out whether you have this disease as well.
