The effect on human fetuses has not been conclusively determined.
- Acute kidney failure: The sudden and acute loss of kidney function

- Blood symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood and its blood cells.
- Bumetanide -- Teratogenic Agent: There is strong evidence to indicate that exposure to Bumetanide during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus.

The carcinogenicity of the substance may be influenced by the duration and level of exposure.
- Proximal Renal Tubular Acidosis: This is a condition that is characterised by a metabolic acidosis state caused by impairment of a persons renal function
