  • My friend just had her second child. She had a bad kidney infection which sent her into labor. After giving birth, she found out she had polycystic kidney disease. Yes, it is a silent disease. No, it was not preventable.

  • that number sounds so far fetched. the only way i would believe this statistic is if they tested about 6 billion people. these numbers come from studying a few thousand folks if that..

  • sure you can get a blood test but how often do people get that done...if you feel okay why go in to the DR
