Is It Safe to Get Pregnant As A Nephrotic Syndrome Patient

Is It Safe to Get Pregnant As A Nephrotic Syndrome PatientNephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder in which the kidneys become leaky so that massive protein spills into urine, which in turn causes swelling, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. Is it safe to get pregnant as a Nephrotic Syndrome patient? Many female patients have such a doubt.

It is not safe to get pregnant if you have the following conditions.

-High blood pressure. About 75% Nephrotic Syndrome patients with hypertension suffer from severe pregnancy-induced hypertension after pregnance, which can cause premature delivery and stillbirth. It can also cause preeclampsia or eclampsia so as to threaten your life. When blood pressure increases very high, you may have headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, even convulsion. In such case, you may have to stop gestation to reduce the workload of kidneys.

-Impaired Kidney function. If your kidney function is impaired by Nephrotic Syndrome, you had better not conceive before your kidney function is restored, because pregnance put extra stress on the kidneys to speed up kidney failure.

It is safe to get pregnant if your Nephrotic Syndrome is under control.

If your Nephrotic Syndrome is under control, your kidney function is normal and you have stopped the use of medications for a long term, you can prepare for pregnance. But you should have a good rest and supplement enough nutrients, such as protein and vitamins. Besides, you should strengthen your immune system to help you fight against aliments, such as infections. When you are pregnant, you should check kidney function regularly, measure blood pressure, examine protein in urine, etc. If you just have a small amount of proteinuria, it is possible for you to conceive as well. In China, we have developed a series of treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath and Mai Kang Composition. If you are interested in them, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
