Latest Free Webinar
On March 28, 2015, PKD Foundation Chapters were invited to participate in an exclusive, online educational conference! PKD experts from across the United States discussed topics that are important to PKD patients. This year's focus was complications associated with PKD including aneurysms, hypertension, cardiovascular issues, cardiac valve abnormalities and polycystic liver disease. Not everyone that has PKD will experience every complication associated with the disease however, understanding these issues will help you to be your best advocate when you visit your physicians.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
