Pre-Eclampsia happens in about 7% of pregnancies and developing HELLP Syndrome effects .02 to .06% of pregnancies.
The cure as most of us know is to deliver the baby but for me my blood pressure actually went higher after I delivered!!
I Recently discovered a facebook page called HELLP Syndrome Awareness and "liked the page.
They recently posted this article from on a study done that low vitamin D levels are linked to Pre-Eclampsia that I wanted to share on Low Vitamin D During Pregnancy Linked to Pre-Eclampsia
At my last well visit a vitamin panel was done. Something my doctor never really checked before? My vitamin D levels came back were very low. I now am on 2000iu's of Vitamin D a day.
Vitamin D deficiency is pretty common, especially for those of us living in the Northeast or in an region that does not see a lot of sun (particularly in the winter months)
Low Vitamin D levels are linked to other problems the most common Osteoporosis. I guess it should be routine for us to always have your Vitamin D levels check!
