CKD stage 4

How long will it take for a ckd stage 4 patient to stage 5? and can a CKD stage 4 be pregnant, is it risky?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

It is difficult to predict the progression as this depends on the underlying cause, which has caused the kidney failure. If not adequately controlled, it could progress faster. Pregnancy can cause adverse effects on the kidney due to the altered hemodynamic status and sometimes may cause renal impairment. So, please discuss the possibilities with your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
