My name is Anastacia, and I am a 22 year old young woman. I, along with my mother and older brother, have ADPKD. My mother was diagnosed with ADPKD when she was 24 years old, shortly after I was born. Due to my mother’s adoption, she knew nothing of her family history and the doctors have been treating her as if she were the first in our line. I was diagnosed with ADPKD at 4 years old, after chronic bladder infections. My mother had told the doctors that she had PKD and requested that I be tested as well. After my positive diagnosis, my mom requested that my brother also be tested. He too was diagnosed with PKD.
