In the 13th anniversary of World Kidney Day campaign in 2018, the focus is on kidney diseases and chronic kidney disease (CKD) among women. The relatively higher rates of hypertension, diabetes, overweight and obesity among women could make them vulnerable to progress CKD more than men. In addition, pregnant women and their fetuses with CKD are indeed prone to higher morbidity and mortality. One of the best methods to prevent adverse maternal and fetal outcomes would be pre-pregnancy counselling for women with CKD to aware them about the risks of their potential pregnancy and related factors such as proteinuria, hypertension and teratogenic medication. The control of hypertension might also be the best intervention for these patients. © 2018 The Author(s).
