My mom has kidney disease and didn’t find out she had it till after her first child. Is there a chance that that will happen to me?

Some kidney diseases are hereditary. Hence, there may be a chance that you have inherited your mother’s genes. Given your family history of chronic kidney disease (CKD), you should be tested for CKD by having blood and urine tests performed by your physician.
