Polycystic Kidney Disease abbreviated is a genetic disease. A genetic disease is one that is determined by your genes and can be passed on from one generation to another.


If you carry the gene for Polycystic Kidney Disease but do not have the disease, you are a carrier. Typically, this disease causes cysts to grow inside your kidneys and therefore makes them larger in size, where they start pushing the other organs towards the periphery. These cysts end up marrying the kidney tissues and over a period of time kidneys lose their function. PKD can be fatal as it results in chronic kidney disease which in turn leads to end-stage renal failure, in other terms, kidney failure.

One major feature of this kidney disease is that PKD not just causes cysts to develop in the kidney but also affects other organs like the liver. It can cause the development of cysts in the liver and also in other areas of the body thus becoming potentially harmful. It can further be divided into two according to its type: Autosomal Dominant PKD and Autosomal Recessive PKD. Autosomal Dominant PKD is usually recognized at the age of 40-50 but even children can develop this disease. It is important for one parent to have this disease for it to pass it on to the next generation. This form is the most common and leads to 90 percent of kidney diseases. Second, Autosomal Recessive PKD is far less common and its symptoms are visible shortly after birth. It is necessary for both parents to have abnormal genes in order for the offspring to have this disease.

Cysts in the kidneys grow from nephrons and are filled with fluid. There may be thousands of cysts present in a person suffering from Polycystic Kidney Disease. Symptoms of PKD include:

  • Headache
  • Hypertension
  • Pain the lower side or the back
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Kidney Infection

  • Blood in urine
  • Kidney failure
  • Feeling of fullness in your abdomen

If you are facing any other abovementioned symptoms on a regular basis, make sure to get the right polycystic kidney disease Ayurvedic treatment as soon as possible to eliminate the risk of multiple kidney diseases. There are certain complications which are a characteristic of polycystic kidney disease:

  • Loss of kidney function
