Can Women with Glomerulonephritis Have Successful PregnancyMany women with glomerulonephritis consult our experts whether they can have successful pregnancy. They mainly concern about the following questions:

Pregnancy can cause significant alterations in acid-base, electrolyte,and renal function due to pregnancy-associated physiologic changes in renal and systemic hemodynamics.

If your kidneys are not functioning well, the wastes produced by your baby will cause extra strain on your kidneys. This will worsen your renal function further. However, there are many cases of successful pregnancy among women with glomerulonephritis. You should consult your doctor before planing a pregnancy.

Proteinuria is an independent predictor of progressive renal failure. Pregnancy may cause increased excretion of protein in urine. Controlling proteinuria less than 1g/d can increase the chance of successful pregnancy in glomerulonephritis significantly.

Additionally, some medications may be harmful to fetus and affect their development. Planing a rational treatment regime is an important premise for successful pregnancy and keep the safety of both mother and baby.
