"In women who have had a successful kidney transplant, fertility can be at least partly restored and chances of successful birth increase", said Dr Giorgina Piccoli of Italy's University of Torino and the Centre Hospitalier Le Mans, France. Dr. Sylvia Anie said. That's because women with serious CKD tend to live longer than men and it takes them longer to reach the critical stage of disease where a transplant is required. Dr. Massengill says roughly 30 million adults in the US suffer kidney disease. While there are more men than women on dialysis for reasons that "are not fully understood", data from different countries, including Canada, U.S. and the United Kingdom show that higher proportions of women live with advanced CKD.

"So, if treated during pregnancy, women still need to be monitored to be sure she is not developing hypertension or it is not persisting". In this respect, pregnancy may be also a valuable occasion for early diagnosis of CKD, thus allowing planning of therapeutic interventions. "Kidney disease may also worsen during pregnancy.This awareness needs to be spread among public". As fluid intake varies over time, it is essential the kidneys also maintain the body's appropriate electrolyte (sodium and potassium) and water balance.

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) has a devastating impact on the patients worldwide, only a few are aware of their disease.
