The causes and predisposing factors can cause kidney disease during pregnancy or exacerbation of existing chronic:

  • increase the burden on the genitourinary system;
  • weakened immunity;
  • disruption of the normal movement of urine - reflux (reverse throw urine in the upper urinary tract);
  • foci of chronic infection (tonsillitis, caries More about caries - take care of your teeth until it's too late  More about caries - take care of your teeth until it's too late

  • chronic constipation;
  • anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract;
  • recurrent cystitis Cystitis: urgently take action  Cystitis: urgently take action
   before pregnancy;
  • diabetes;
  • releases hormones (progesterone relaxes the smooth muscles of the ureters, they expand, lengthen and curve).

Often it occurs during pregnancy pyelonephritis, hydronephrosis and asymptomatic bacteriuria. Much less marked glomerulonephritis, tuberculosis Tuberculosis - a full recovery is not guaranteed  Tuberculosis - a full recovery is not guaranteed
   kidney, urolithiasis Kidney stones - why women tolerate it harder?  Kidney stones - why women tolerate it harder?
   and malformations of the urinary system.



During pyelonephritis are three risk:

  • Grade 1 - uncomplicated pyelonephritis, arising during pregnancy;
  • 2 degree - chronic pyelonephritis, which existed before pregnancy;
  • 3 degree - pyelonephritis and hypertension or anemia, pyelonephritis only kidney.

Incubation of pregnancy is contraindicated in the third degree of risk. Treatment of pyelonephritis is full, vitamin and diet, excessive drinking, antibacterial and detoxification therapy.



Glomerulonephritis - is infectious and allergic disease leading to kidney impairment immunnokompleksnomu. Proceeds in three forms: nephrotic, hematuric and high blood pressure. Incubation of pregnancy is contraindicated in acute glomerulonephritis, an exacerbation of chronic glomerulonephritis with severe hypertension and azotemia.



Hydronephrosis can be congenital or acquired, and is characterized by the compression of a stone, tumor, or bend the ureter, which leads to stagnation of urine in the renal pelvis system and its expansion. Prolong pregnancy in hydronephrosis can not.


Urolithiasis disease

Kidney stones characterized by the presence of stones in the urinary tract, often with the addition of a secondary pyelonephritis. During the attack (cramps), pain in the lumbar region, groin, in the course of the ureters, hematuria and stone passage.
