Project Title:


Project Type:

Clinical Trial, Enrolment ongoing
Adjunct biobank: DNA, Serum, Plasma, Urine

Disease group(s):

AD structural kidney disorders

Project Summary:

Recently, it has been shown that ketosis-inducing dietary interventions slow disease progression in animal models of polycystic kidney disease (PKD), even when the state of ketosis is only induced for a short period of time. The present study aims to investigate the effects of short term ketosis on total kidney volume (TKV) (and other parameters) in 10 ADPKD-patients with rapidly progressive disease.
