Preeclampsia Linked to Heart Disease Risk
Date:11/2/2007

gests that there is a specific relationship between preeclampsia and heart disease, the researchers said.

One expert agreed with the conclusions of both studies.

"I believe in these findings that preeclampsia is related to cardiovascular disease," said Dr. Richard Levine, a senior investigator at the U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. "In women who develop preeclampsia, there are already signs of metabolic syndrome, which is linked to subsequent cardiovascular disease," he said.

Women who develop preeclampsia should be screened for heart disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, and women at risk for preeclampsia before becoming pregnant should also try to reduce their cardiovascular risk factors to help prevent the condition, Levine said.

"Get your weight under control," Levine said. "If you have diabetes or chronic hypertension, get that attended to and take medications to lower your cholesterol, exercise, and eat well."
