I did see a nephrologist with the last pregnancy and he placed me on medicine to control my bp, but that was about all. He also gave me medication for my migraines - I am a migraine sufferer. When I was admitted to the hospital, he stopped by to consult with my OB. I actually have not research kidney disorder/issues with PE, but as you mentined, I suspect that it is a contributing factor. I will do some additional research and post the info. Many women do not know that they have duplicate kidneys. I knew b/c I have uterine didelphysis (two uterus, two vaginas and two cervix) and since the urinary and reproductive system develop at the same time, if there is a developmental abnormality with one, there is usually an issue with the other. They discovered that I had three kidneys after my diagnosis of uterine didelphysis. I wonder how many women with PE have a reproductive abnormality. Anyway, thank you for the inquiry and I will investigate this more.
