I have a friend who is 79 years old and was diagnosed with PKD when she was in her 30s. She was diagnosed with kidney failure in one kidney two years go and this past December found herself in the ER with massive swelling and end stage renal failure. She is been having dialysis since just a few days before Christmas 2016. Her overall kidney function was 5% then and is 5% now. Just two weeks ago she began having dialysis overnight at home. My question, is there ever a point when dialysis does not work? If someone is on life-support, they will continue to live as long as they are connected to the machine. Is this the same with dialysis? Or will there be a point where she will have to be on a machine 24 hours a day?
Hi every body I am new. I am in PKD stage 4 I feel tried alot. I need to know how to get some energy?
Hi everyone, I Am brand new to this. I was diagnosed with PKD in June of 2007, I will make this short the best I can as a lot has happened. I was very lucky to land the best of the best doctors at UCI Medical Center in California. Over the years I had over 400 cystic tumors removed which also had spread to my liver and uterus. After several operations unfortunately I had to have a hysterectomy...
