Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) - Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment


Episode 226: Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) - Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment with Lisa Baxter. Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an inherited disorder in which clusters of cysts develop primarily within your kidneys, causing your kidneys to enlarge and lose function over time. Cysts are noncancerous round sacs containing fluid. The cysts vary in size, and they can grow very large. Having many cysts or large cysts can damage your kidneys. PKD varies greatly in its severity, and some complications are preventable. Lifestyle changes and treatments might help reduce damage to your kidneys from complications.

Lisa Baxter shares insights on Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) based on her personal experience with PKD. She is a YouTuber content creator, author, actress, kidney advocate, documentarian, volunteer, social worker, and health ambassador. Lisa is always on the lookout for new ways to educate dialysis and PKD patients, family members and the general public why proactive measures are instrumental to living a healthy and full life, even on dialysis.
