Assessment of Lipoproteins in Pregnancy Induced Hypertension

Gestational hypertension, also referred to as pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) is a condition characterized by high blood pressure during pregnancy. Gestational hypertension can lead to a serious condition called preeclampsia, also referred to as toxemia. Hypertension during pregnancy affects about 6-8% of pregnant women. The present study was conducted in the Hospital in the North India. A total 80 women’s were included in the study. 40 normal condition and 40 pregnant womens having hypertension were included in to the study. The blood samples were collected and the estimation of blood urea, serum creatinine, Cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL, LDL, & VLDL is done. The present study showed the changes in the lipid parameters in the pregnancy induced hypertension womens and normal pregnant womens. The levels of the Proteinuria, Blood urea, Serum creatinine were estimated as the function of the kidney function test. The lipid parameters were also estimated and showed marked changes in the two study groups. Hence the monitoring of the lipid parameters in PIH womens is important to avoid any complications.
