This chapter begins by describing the normal physiological changes that occur in pregnancy, including changes in tubular function, increased renal size, and increased blood flow. It then describes management strategies in a range of renal disorders, including haematuria, proteinuria, urinary tract infections, and both acute and chronic kidney disease. Hyperkalaemia, dialysis (and haemodialysis in pregnancy), transplantation, and medications suitable for use in the pregnant patient are all described, among others.
