Nephrologist 's  Response
You need to quantify the proteinuria in your urine. If it is less than 1gm in 24 hours you can go ahead with the pregnancy as your creatinine is also with in reasonable range. But you should understand this comes at a slight increased risk of prematurity of baby, preeclampsia and worsening of renal functions. You should also stop coversyl once you conceive and have a close follow up with the nephrologist through out your pregnancy
