About PKD

Polycystic kidney disease (or PKD) is a range of inherited, incurable and often serious renal conditions that also affect the liver, brain and other organs. There are two forms of PKD: the more common Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) affects up to 70,000 adults and children in the UK, while the rarer Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD) is usually diagnosed in babies and young children, and affects about 600-1000 (20-40 births per year).

This is an uncertain and difficult time for people living with PKD, their families and friends. We are doing everything we can to support anyone affected by polycystic kidney disease, and to ensure our research will continue and make life better for them in the future.

We need your help today more than ever before. Buy your virtual #PKDballoons today in solidarity with people across the world who are living with PKD, and together, we will emerge from this even stronger.

Your #PKDballoons will buy

Help us to raise funds for essential medical research and provide support services for people with PKD. We give grants to researchers working on the causes of PKD and identifying treatments. We raise awareness about the burden of PKD. We help patients and families to cope with their difficult journey, providing them with access to information about PKD, putting them in touch with others in a similar position, and offering a friendly and reassuring ear when they feel helpless or overcome with emotion.

Your #PKDballoons will enable us to continue this vital work.
