Hi gang. I've been having problems with my electrolytes (potassium and magnesium) and just got a call from my PCP office because my midwife asked them to refer me to a nephrologist (I'm told that's a kidney specialist?) to see whether my problems - and my body not really responding as well as they'd like to the 11 pills I'm taking daily now (over the last 2 weeks) or whether I have kidney problems.

I'm just wondering if anyone out there has kidney problems and what that has meant for your pregnancy? Does that make you high-risk? Is there potential of harm to my son? Am I more likely to go into labor early or have other delivery problems?

I don't see my midwife until Friday, and certainly will ask these questions to the specialist on November 3rd, but I was just hoping that someone out there might have some info for me in the mean time?

I have a problem with chronic kidney infections. I would assume you would be high risk because your kidneys filter toxins for you and you baby so if your kidneys aren't functioning then that can definitley be a problem
