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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
