Hello,
Thanks for your query.INCREASED IMPEDENCE TO FLOW WITH A RI OF0.86 IN LEFT UTERINE ARTERY is a predictor of development of pre-eclampsia. So its ok if you take arginine supplementation. But keep checking her BP regularly.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
Regards,
Dr Arif
