|Am I in a risk for preeclampsia?
Unfortunately, despite extensive research no one knows
what causes preeclampsia. However the risk increases for
women carrying multiple fetuses, for women over forty, diabetics
and women with chronic high blood pressure. There is also
a higher risk in women of African descent, in the first
pregnancy than in subsequent ones or if your or your partner’s
mother had preeclampsia. A lack of vitamin C and E and magnesium
has been noted in women with this ailment, highlighting
the need for careful diet.
