Pregnancy with Nephrotic Syndrome
I am a 22 year old girl with Nephrotic Syndrome which was diagnosed when I was 18. I was previously on Steriods for the first year, then was medication free for a year. When my kidneys started leaking protein again I was put on Ramipril. This is now my 3rd year on Ramipril but I am still leaking around 3+ of protein. My doctor keeps telling me that I cannot get pregnant on this medication. I am just wondering what the likely outlook it for my condition if it continues as it is and also what would happen if I wanted to become pregnant? Is there any other medication I could take instead or would my Kidneys not be able to cope?

Thank you,
Hannah

we should have a well knowing of the relationship between pregnancy and Nephrotic Syndrome.
1. The types of Nephrotic Syndrome in pregnancy
Nephrotic Syndrome in pregnancy can be divided into four types:
· Nephrotic Syndrome associated with pre-eclampsia
It is the most common type of Nephrotic Syndrome in pregnancy.
· Cyclic Nephrotic Syndrome of Pregnancy
Its characteristic is it will attack in the duration of pregnancy, and will remit spontaneously after the pregnancy terminates. However, it will relapse when the women are pregnant once again. This type is rarely seen.
