This disease occurs in the US to over 600,000 people. They have been mapped out in family history for who ever has had it. It's not often for people to get the same disease in the family.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1246/- It is a multisystem disorder. This disorder has a 6% chance of being in the family history. But if common to other family members its has a 25% chance of happening to any family member. This disease could spread in one family member who has it. It can go from 6% or 25% into a 100% where it will be out of reach to treat the disease.

Any of these machines can catch and see if they have any kind of disease. They say Polycystic kidney disease is hard to find at first. If they run other scans like a CT scan it will be able to catch it.

In patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), pharmacologic therapy is necessary to accomplish the following: Control blood pressure. Control abnormalities related to renal failure. Treat urinary tract infections. If treatment patients don't take it serious by following rules they good die. This disease is not easy to live with because their is constant pain.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1246/- If no family member had this disease then they would live a positive life without. But if a family member had it there could be a 6 to 25% chance of them getting this disease and if not treated early then they could die. If any person was treated with this disease and survived it can be carried over to future children because they can be born with it.
