Pregnancy is not common in women on dialysis due to impaired fertility. A new study from UC finds that among patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), there are racial disparities as to who is more likely to become pregnant. Native American, Hispanic and black women have a higher likelihood of pregnancy than white women.
The research, by Silvi Shah MD, which was featured in Drugs.com, shows for the first time that pregnancy rates in women with ESKD on dialysis are higher than in previous reports.
