Pregnancy and IgA Nephropathy
People with kidney disease are usually concerned about pregnancy, and IgA Nephropathy patients are no exception. Here, we will talk more about pregnancy and IgA nephropathy in detail:
IgAN is a common type of glomerulonephritis. It can occur in any age, but it is commonly detected from adolescence to the age of 40. According to the study, it accounts for about 10% of end stage renal disease cases(and this may last for 10 to 25 years or more).
Honestly speaking, the risk of getting pregnant is relatively high in IgA patients, but they are not impossible. Before contemplating pregnancy, it is necessary to consult with the nephrologist or other physicians carefully. Generally, the advice should be in accordance with individual’s condition. And factors that can be considered are the degree of kidney damage, the amount of protein in urine, hematuria, high blood pressure and the findings of different tests and so on.
Here, let’s take hypertension for example. To help lower hypertension, drugs like ACE Inhibitors or ARBs are usually used. In terms of pregnancy, high blood pressure is more risky than the disorder itself.
