Health: Polycystic Kidney Disease

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm the secondary applicant of my wife's 175 visa. I've been diagnosed with ADPKD when I was 13. Blood tests since then have shown my condition has not progressed, which means there's little chance I will develop chronic kidney disease in the future.

 

I'm in contact with my doctor to prepare a report stating the condition, current state and long-term prognosis. I've read a lot about health requirements and I'm aware that conditions like this can cause visa refusal, even if I may never need dialysis.

 

Still, I would like to hear from people who have applied and had ADPKD (or similar conditions), and what was the outcome. I read other threads in this forum that mention polycystic kidney disease, but the outcome was not mentioned.

 

I appreciate any information that may help us in increasing the chances our visa application will be accepted.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Cheers,

 

Will

vandeep, there's still a chance, some of us have passed with transplant, so the best we can ever have is 50% as we only have one functioning kidney,

Vandeep, I just recommend you talk to your doctor and work with him to prepare a report. I should contain your history, current condition and prognosis.

That's what I'm doing. I'll keep you posted of the outcome.

Hi Caylin,

 

I eventually got the visa, but the process of obtaining the clearance from a nephrologist, added at least 2 months to the process, after the case office had been assigned. So I suggest you start this process now.

In the end, the doctor was very helpful and wrote an extensive and reassuring letter regarding my condition. But he did so only after requesting and getting the results of several lab tests (e.g. creatinine, ultrasounds, etc), on which he based his report. Note that I had not seen this doctor before, so he was not 'my doctor', hence the need for new tests.

In the end, given all the tests were OK, he could write a good report with 'migration specific' wording, such as "I see no reason for not granting this man his visa".

Also, he mentioned he does this "all the time", for various conditions, so you might ask beforehand if the doctor you go is familiar with writing reports for these sort of cases.

this is enlightening... i am almost losing hope here. thanks so much for taking the time to reply. i hope my nephrologist is as good in making reports as yours.

Hi Caylin

I was just wondering how your visa application went with regards to the PKD? Have you been successful. My hubby has the same and we are exploring the best way forward. Any suggestions would be helpful - thank you.

Hi all,

I am a 25 year old with polycystic kidney disease.

Has anyone else on this thread been granted their visa? What happened?

Thanks

The best advice is to get specialist advice from an agent that specialises in visas with medical conditions such as George Lombard
