Nephrologists treat pregnant women with dialysis, despite lack of specific guidelines

A study shows that nephrologists are beginning to feel uncomfortable about treating pregnant women with dialysis. Despite the fact that nephrologists were uneasy about treating these women, a significant portion of nephrologists reported having to take on these cases. The study shows that approximately  three-fourths of pregnant women treated with dialysis resulted in complications or infant mortality. Currently, there is a lack of guidelines for nephrologists on how to treat pregnant patients that require dialysis.
