Signs And Symptoms Of Pre-eclampsia In Pregnant Women?
Afternoon doctor. I want to ask I’m 32 weeks pregnant. Yesterday finished checking urine and blood lab because of 3 consecutive days of hot body cold. The result is positive urine protein 1 and blood pressure 90 and during pregnancy there is never high blood pressure. page 11.1. What I’m asking is whether it is included in the category of pre-eclampsia symptoms. While I do not experience high blood pressure and leg swelling or body.? Is there any precaution that must be taken so that the protein in the urine does not increase and can even be normal again? Thank you in advance.
Preeclampsia is a state of hypertension (high blood pressure)> = 140/90 mmHg in pregnancy which usually occurs above 20 weeks' gestation and is accompanied by a positive urine protein test. Preeclampsia can be a dangerous thing because it can cause seizures (eclampsia) and organ damage. Preeclampsia disappears after termination in pregnancy (the baby is born). Apart from hypertension and positive protein in the urine, other symptoms that can arise are:
Headache Shortness of breath Decreased urine volume Blurred vision Pain in the pit of the stomach Swelling in the soles of the feet Impaired liver function Decreased blood platelet count Diagnosis of preeclampsia is confirmed by the doctor based on physical examination and supporting examination in the form of urine analysis and blood tests. Preeclampsia management uses drugs to reduce blood pressure, drugs to prevent seizures, and appropriate labor.
Protein + in the urine (proteinuria) without an increase in blood pressure is not necessarily caused by preeclampsia. The condition of proteinuria can be caused by disorders of the kidneys or urinary tract infections. Handling is usually done depending on the results of other urine tests more directed to where. Evaluation of urine results is also needed after treatment. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
