Living Donor Research Living Donor Risks Living Kidney Donor

Pregnancy in Living Donors

According to a paper just presented at the American Society of Nephrology’s 41st Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, living donors do not have an increased risk of developing hypertension or diabetes during pregnancy than non-donors.

Am I the only one a bit disturbed that the medical community has seen this issue to be SO unimportant that this study of 2025 women is the LARGEST study to date, especially considering how hard pregnancy is on a women’s kidneys?
