Is Preeclampsia Preventative?

by Yenny (SU)
Preeclampsia is a very dangerous condition that can surface in pregnant women, usually after twenty weeks. Previously, preeclampsia was diagnosed by extremely elevated protein levels in the mother-to-be’s urine. After doctors determined that organ problems sometimes do not result in elevated protein levels but cause preeclampsia nonetheless, it became acceptable that the condition could also be diagnosed by persistent high blood pressure or the new development of decreased blood platelets.
