When my cousin had her baby after p.e she was given kidney scans to make sure her kidneys were functioning normally. Is this something that's often done? I have had it twicw but no one has ever looked at my kidney function. What are other peoples experiences of this?

Hi Chelle,

Kidney scans are sometimes done particularly if in your experience with PE your kidney function was in doubt. It may be worth taking to your GP or ideally your consultant about what happened through your pregnancy & if there were an y 'markers' that need to be focussed on.
Scans can sometimes reveal real suprises...like you only have one kidney or if tere are interruptions to the blood flow to the kidney itself.

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes
Liz

Hi chelle,

My consultant did organise a scan to check my kidneys and carried out a lot of blood tests.

She asked me if I'd ever had any water infections as a child (which I hadn't) because she said that can sometimes leave scarring and damage your kidneys and maybe contribute to PE. She said she didn't expect to find anything, but wanted to rule out all possibilities. It turns out she was right and my kidney function was fine.

Maybe you could ask your GP/Consultant about this-It's better to cover all bases.

Hope that helps a bit.

I've had quite extensive kidney tests, which have revealed some reduction in kidney function, though not the reason why.

At the time of having PE though the OB identified that my kidney function was not normal even for severe PE, so that is why I was referred to a renal specialists.

If you send me a private email I am happy to explain what tests I have had, and their results.

Best wishes
