Why Kidney Disease Develops during PregnancySome women may develop kidney disease during pregnancy.It can be dangerous for both mother and the baby.Knowing why kidney disease develops during pregnancy can reduce its incidence.

Urine infection

Urine infection is commonly seen during pregnancy. One of the reasons is that the baby lies above the bladder, and can reduce the flow of urine from the kidneys to the bladder. As urine contains many bacteria, it is very likely to cause infection in urinary tract. If the infection spreads to the kidneys, it may lead to a kidney problem.

As some antibiotics may have side effects on baby, you should consult your doctor before using any drugs.Or you can consult us to get to know what antibiotics are safe for you and your baby.

Because of checks performed during pregnancy, this condition may be checked out. Minor kidney disease does not have effect on the baby and mother. However, in serious cases, it can cause high blood pressure which can cause bad side effects.

New kidney disease develops during pregnancy

New kidney disease may develop during pregnancy, but it is rare.For example, lupus may develop for the first time of pregnancy.

Eclampsia is another cause of kidney disease, but this case is rare.
