I'm 52. I have polycystic kidney disease. Also my 30 year old daughter and 27 year old son. Both myself and my daughter have insulin dependent diabetes, anemia, and severe hypertension. My son has hypertension. It's a difficult, tiring disease. What gets us through the rough days and painful days is our faith, a great nephrologist, and hope for a cure someday. Gotta have hope. GOD BLESS EVERYONE.
