Gosh, I hope not - we Moms of micro preemies do NOT need something else to worry about!

Guess I'll have to do some investigating also since I had a micro preemie also. I've never heard that but I'd like to know if there is any truth to it.

Molly,
You've sparked my interest. I'm not finding anything either. But I plan on poking around some more to see what I can find.
Let me know if you come across it first.
Jenn

Micro preemies/Kidney faliure?

Postby molly419 » Sun Dec 21, 2008 01:26 pm

I was told that there is a new study that came out linking micro preemies to an increase of kidney failure around the ages of 8 to 10. The doctor working on this study is out of Grand Rapids, MI.

I can not find the article online. Has anyone read the article or know where I can find it?
