Would you like to take part in the DRINK Study?
The DRINK study is looking to recruit patients in the UK with polycystic kidney disease (known as ADPKD or PKD) to take part in a research study to determine how much water to drink. Participants will be randomly assigned to either a daily prescription of high water intake or to continue with their usual drinking practices.
The aims of the study are:
- To determine whether it is possible and safe for people to drink an amount of water large enough to stop the body making a hormone called vasopressin.
- To see whether participants can effectively use a home urine test to measure whether or not they have had the right amount to drink
This study will give us the information we need to design a larger study to see whether drinking the right amount of water can preserve kidney function for longer.
If you are interested in taking part, please contact the study researchers directly:

It would be particularly helpful to us to have more than one member of the same family in the study. If you have a relative with PKD, please pass this information to them.
