    Pre-eclampsia is what is known as the voltage rise during pregnancy and differs from what usually happens in a normal adult State. This voltage rise in pregnant women can lead to a serious commitment in most of the organs of the person. To differentiate it from simple voltage it should be a simple analysis. The presence of protein in the urine or proteinuria is an indicator of pre-eclampsia. What is this causing? This is because during pregnancy the amount of blood in the mother can increase to seven litres. This fact under normal conditions would be very dangerous to a normal adult but during pregnancy the blood vessels change their morphology routine, dilating much and allowing the heart to work in optimal conditions, more relaxed. If the blood vessels do not respond to this stimulus for dilation or relaxation during pregnancy, these contract and cause a type of hypertension that is called pre-eclampsia.

    This can cause serious problems in the mother, since in the past in the leading cause of death. That is why, the treatment of pre-eclampsia obliges occasionally having to extract the fetus to ensure the health of the mother, born as premature baby (lower weight than usual). Why the pre-eclampsia occurs? One of the reasons by which it is believed that this type of hypertension occurs is a poor implantation of the placenta. This situation is the most serious since it leads to a delay in the growth of the fetus and is usually given to the seven or eight months of pregnancy. Other causes occurs in patients who are obese or who already depart from a previous hypertension since they have a higher risk of developing pre-eclampsia, and are the so-called risk patients.

    In recent years has observed an increase in pregnancies in adolescents and in turn a delay in the arrival of the first child, due to various factors such as the employment situation, late emancipation, economic level, etc is for this reason that the World Health Organization has a basic recommendations before pregnancy and the potential risks to the fetus and the mother: the best age for a first pregnancy is between the ages of 20 and 24. You should have at least 2 children, between 20 and 30 years. The intervals between pregnancies in women must exceed 2 years for that body to recover and return to optimal functional status. Nor is recommended spending more than 5 years. Pregnancy is not recommended in women who exceed the 35 years of age, especially those in which is your first child. Require strict control during pregnancy in the event of the mother’s illness. You will find up-to-date information on our web.
