Keto diets are a hot topic in the PKD community. What are these diets and how much evidence is there that they work?
We interview Professor Patricia Wilson, Trustee of the PKD Charity and Curator of the PKD BioResource, to find out more about new research into the use of lab-grown ‘mini kidneys’ to find new treatments for PKD.
Research supported by the PKD Charity has uncovered links between vitamin A and ARPKD, which might lead to possible treatments in future.
On Thursday 17 June, kidney doctors and scientists gathered online to share and discuss the very latest research working out how best to protect kidney patients from Covid-19.
A BIG thank you to all our wonderful supporters that took part in the 21k Challenge in April and May 2021 and raised a whopping £8,300 for PKD Charity. Our largest amount of money raised in this challenge yet!
