How long does it take to be diagnosed with PCOS? Because I'm currently under a Nephrologist and I will be having various full Blood tests but I have to wait till June 2011 as thats my next appointment. But I have all the symptoms for PCOS, even the female family medical history but they all got diabetes type 2 then type1... My consultant thinks I might have kidney/diabetes. But I have had menstrual problems since day one. I also have fibroids on both side. But my GP does not take me seriously.[/list]

Blood tests can be hit and miss so you can be diagnosed from symptoms alone. You need to see an endocrinologist - why are you seeing a neurologist?
