Author(s): Dr. Archana Bharti, Dr. Santosh Kumar, Dr. Mani Bhushan, Dr. Sude Kumar Singh
Abstract: Preeclampsia affects 3–5% of pregnancies. Along with preeclampsia, other diseases which are included in the group of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are eclampsia, gestational hypertension and chronic hypertension. The Normal serum calcium is 9 -11 mg/dl.The Normal serum Magnesium is 1.8 – 2.4 mg/dl.
This study was done in Department of Biochemistry and patiens were selected from Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in AIIMS Patna. Total 50 women s had been included in the study, there were divided in two groups as 25 females in Preeclamptics group and 25 females in Control study group. Estimation of Serum Calcium was done by Ortho cresol thale in complex one method. Estimation of Serum Magnesium was done by Calmagite method.
Hence from the above generated data it can be concluded that Preeclampsia is related with hypocalcaemia and hypomagnesaemia. Hypocalcaemia may have a starring role in the etiology of pre eclampsia. Hence calcium supplementation is beneficial in lowering blood pressure and reducing incidence of preeclampsia.
