Is there high genetic risk for polycystic kidney disease?

Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic disease, and it is precisely because of "well-known" fur and inpidual typical examples. People have made a misconception about polycystic kidney disease, that is, polycystic kidney disease can't get married and children can't be. This has added a lot of mental stress to patients with polycystic kidney disease and has caused confusion in their families. It is often subject to "discrimination" from outsiders.

Most families of polycystic kidneys are hereditary, and the heritability of some cystic kidneys is almost 100%. Everyone knows that if one family suffers from kidney disease, then this family is already very difficult. If the disease is not treated promptly, uremia may be caused.

The genetic prevalence of adult polycystic kidney disease is approximately 0.2%. It is mainly characterized by the occurrence, development, and number of kidney cysts. It is often accompanied by the formation of cysts in other organs. The liver is more common, and the pancreas, ovary, and gastrointestinal tract are also visible. .

Polycystic kidneys follow an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern:

1. The incidence of males and females is equal;

2. If one parent has a disease, 50% of the children get cystic gene and the disease occurs. If both parents suffer from this disease, the child's incidence increases to 75%;

3, non-affected children do not carry the cyst gene, the next generation (Sun generation) will not be the disease, that is, will not pass every generation. Really no more symptoms before the onset of symptoms, when the symptoms appear, the condition can develop very quickly, is one of the common causes of uremia in middle-aged people, but also one of the most common diseases of hereditary nephropathy.
