Hi, i am 31 years old. last december i had an abortion due to pre eclampsia in my 24th week. my uric acid and blood pressure had shot up to alarming levels. normally i am a low blood pressure person. my BP shot up because of the pregnancy. i am pregnant again and my LMP was 5th october. i weigh 89 kgs. my uric acid is 5. i am very worried that the same thing will happen to me again since i am overweight. :( please help me...
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Pre eclampsia is not related to weight. However, pre eclampsia tends to recur in subsequent pregnancies. I will suggest you to take salt restricted diet, have regular antenatal check ups and get your blood pressure checked regularly, to detect pre eclampsia at the earliest and get appropriate treatment timely. Hope you found the answer helpful. Regards Dr Deepti Verma OBGYN
