I don't know if Polycystic Ovary Disease always goes with PKD. PKD has two forms and I have the hereditary kind, from my mom. She just passed away on March 10th from complications from her dialysis. Anyway, I had a 50% chance of getting it, if ONE parent has it, so I got it. my 6 siblings didn't! So much for odds. I have no loss of kidney function. Mom did at my age. I've had this since birth, but was diagnosed at 19 when she also was diagnosed. ALL my doctors have said the only thing to do now is KEEP BLOOD PRESSURE LOW. Eat a low sodium diet, and exercise. Being in the best shape possible *if* I ever have reduction in function is key. I highly recommend seeing a renal specialist, getting full ultra sound scans of your kidneys, liver, basicalky the whole pelvis. It doesn't hurt, takes 20 mins. Also ask for the 24 hour urine collection and all the blood work, also easy. If you do have it, don't freak out, because there is nothing you can do to make it go away or make it worse, other than having high blood pressure.
