Are Sheehan's syndrome and renal insufficiency inter-related?
not much prevalent
Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
Postpartum acute intra-pituitary hemorrhage causes Sheehan's syndrome. It is not a predisposing factor for renal insufficiency, unless in association with diabetes, hypertension.
You can go for routine urine analysis and renal function tests like Blood urea nitrogen, Serum Creatinine & serum electrolytes as first line investigations.
Many of the symptoms of chronic renal insufficiency are non-specific e.g headache, lethergy, fatigue, muscle cramps etc.
Let me know if you have more queries.
