Increased Levels Of Protein In The Urine Of Pregnant Women, Low Blood Pressure?
Good afternoon .. I’m 35 weeks pregnant. My urine test results, protein +1, while my blood pressure from the first until now is not enough … That’s where it came from? And what is the solution like ??
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Protein +1 in the urine shows that there is an increase in the protein content in the urine. Protein is one component in the blood that should be filtered by the kidneys and not wasted in the urine. An increase in the amount of urine indicates the possibility of the following conditions:
Urinary tract infection
Obesity or excess weight
High blood pressure
Among all the possibilities, the most worrying thing happens to pregnant women is the condition of preeclampsia. However, preeclampsia should also be followed by an increase in blood pressure or hypertension. With your case having a low blood pressure or drop, preeclampsia is not the first possibility. But to be more precise which among the other possibilities that you are experiencing, must be further examined.
Neither is the case with blood pressure that you call lacking. Please note in advance that blood pressure is called low if the number is less than 90/60 mmHg. Normally it is between 90/60 and 120/80 mmHg. For ordinary people, often 100/60 has been called low, when in fact, this is still within the normal range. If your blood pressure is indeed below 90/60, chances are it could be due to dehydration or lack of fluids, lack of nutrition, allergic reactions, anemia or lack of red blood cells, hormonal disorders, and infections. In addition, this condition is actually normal if it occurs in the first 24 weeks of pregnancy.
Our advice to you is to check your condition at the obstetrician, because the possibilities above can not be known if there are no conclusions and no further information, such as what is the condition of your pregnancy so far, how your previous blood pressure trends, whether there are other symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, etc. With a check, clearer conclusions can be drawn about your condition, including whether the two conditions are related or not, and what is the best treatment.
Meanwhile, keep living a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarette smoke, not consuming coffee during pregnancy, getting enough rest, consuming lots of water and nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, and immediately check yourself with your obstetrician. So, hopefully answering your question.
