Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Postby clairedavas » Thu Oct 20, 2016 8:41 pm

How likely is it to have both.... I know I am positive for the PCOS....but they are reading my ultrasounds for the Kidney Disease.... On Wikipedia it says this can be fatal...and many other terrible things... How many of these are true? What are some things I can do? I just really hope I don't have the Kidney Disease.. I'm an only child...and my mom is worried and I already have enough on my hands.
I'm a prime example of the way kidney disease strikes silently.
