ARPKD(Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease)

Here’s a little more information on ARPKD(Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease). In order for the child to be affected by this disease both parents carry the PKHD1 gene. Now there is a possibility that the child won’t be affected at all but can be a carrier. My daughter wasn’t affected by the disease but there is a possibility she can be a carrier but I have to wait until she’s a teen to get her tested. I want to bring awareness to PKD because this disease has affected my sons, me and my family. Making people aware of this disease can make difference and hoping scientists can find treatment and cure so others won’t be affected.
