Can Women with Glomerulonephritis in RA Get Pregnant

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-10-17 17:21

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and it may cause inflammation in kidneys leading to glomerulonephritis. Can women with glomerulonephritis due to rheumatoid arthritis get pregnant?

As rheumatoid arthritis itself can affect physical ability, strength and endurance, it is necessary for them to judge if they would be albe to care for a baby. Therefore, it is important to question your capabilities before pregnancy.

In most cases, the actual course of pregnancy is not affected by rheumatoid arthritis itself. However, women with the condition tend to have greater chance of premature birth and neonatal complications.

If women with glomerulonephritis due to rheumatoid arthritis do not have obvious kidney damage and they can endure it, they can get pregnant.

However, if they have serious kidney impairment, pregnancy may be life-threatening to them, especially when they have high blood pressure and proteinuria.

If their renal function declines seriously, their kidneys will fail to remove wastes and excessive fluids from body adequately. If the women get pregnant, the wastes produced by the bay will also have to be filtered out by the mother’s kidneys. Therefore, it will put extra strain on their kidneys.

Additionally, if the women with glomerulonephritis have more than 1g protein loss in urine and high blood pressure, it will increase the risk of pregnancy significantly. These conditions may increase the medical conditions like eclampsia, premature delivery and stillbirth. In serious case, it may cause acute renal function decline.

Therefore, before pregnancy, women with glomerulonephritis due to rheumatoid arthritis should consult a doctor and assess their overall illness condition to see if they can have a baby.
