Can Polycystic Kidney Disease Be PregnantPolycystic kidney disease can be passed to the next generation since it is a hereditary disease due to gene mutation, therefore many PKD parents concern whether they can be pregnant or not for the sake of the baby’s health. Another concern is the gravida’s health. PKD can cause loss of kidney functions and pregnancy will have definite impact on the illness progression, therefore more caution should be paid before pregnancy.

Nephrologists have pointed out that PKD patients can be pregnant, but there are many restricted conditions. Patients should have a clear understanding of these conditions to avoid harms or injuries to the the mother and the baby.

Pregnancy is relatively safe in case of the following conditions:

Illness conditions are stable and urinary tract infections are well controlled;

Serum creatinine level is in the normal range;

Blood pressure is within normal range after several measures.

In case of the following cases, pregnancy is not very suitable.

The patient has high blood pressure. About 75% PKD patients will develop pregnancy-induced hypertension and increase the risk of preterm birth or even stillbirth.

Kidney functions have been damaged especially if the patient has proteinuria, high creatinine and high blood urea nitrogen. Pregnancy can further worsen the illness conditions.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a good treatment option for those that want to be pregnant. Active ingredients in Chinese medicines can shrink renal cysts, lower high blood pressure, repair damaged renal tissues and improve kidney functions so as to greatly improve the patient’s illness conditions. What is more important, it is natural and safe and causes no harms or side effects to the patients. When illness conditions are stabilized, pregnancy can become possible.

When the gravida’s health is ensured, the next concern is the baby’s health. Prenatal gene diagnosis can help the parents make clear whether the unborn baby will have the disease.
