Can A Woman on Dialysis Have A Baby

Can A Woman on Dialysis Have A BabyOne excruciating fact shows more than 90% of dialysis patients are suffering from the decline of pregnant ability. However, this doesn’t mean the women will lose their right to have a baby forever, because some therapies can help increase dialysis patients’ fertility.

The loss of fertility is due to deposits of waste products and renal anemia. Dialysis can help diseased kidneys to remove waste products and extra fluid, but it is unable to do all the tasks of kidneys. Therefore, dialysis is unable to normalize kidney failure patients’ periods and increase their fertility effectively. Even though it is uncommon, about 1 to 7 percent of patients on dialysis do get pregnancy successfully.

If dialysis patients want to restore their fertility, they can try the following treatments.

1. Eat more iron-containing foods: Iron is one essential mineral for the production of red blood cells. In view of this, iron-containing foods or even iron supplement can help regulate the formation of red blood cells, so as to normalize women’s periods.

2. Accept erythropoietin (EPO) treatment: Normally, EPO is secreted by kidneys, and it is one essential hormone for red blood cell production. It is reported that EPO treatment can cause 50 percent of women on dialysis to get their periods again. This will increase patients’ pregnant ability largely.

3. Improve kidney function level: The higher patients’ kidney function level, the more chance patients can have to get pregnant. Therefore, if patients still have urine output, they can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can rescue impaired but not dead kidney cells to increase their kidney function level and give a new hope for women on dialysis to have a baby.

If you want to try the above methods to have a baby, you can ask help from the doctor online for more detailed treatment plan.
