Medical Study Links Kynurenic Acid To Preeclampsia

A Norwegian medical study has showed a convincing connection between high kynurenic acid levels and preeclampsia in pregnant mothers. The research suggests that women with abnormally high kynurenic acid levels are 3.6 times more likely to develop preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia is a condition that may progress into eclampsia if left untreated. Eclampsia can cause the pregnant mother to suffer symptoms that may endanger the health of the baby, such as seizures and high blood pressure. Severe cases of eclampsia can result in death of the infant and/or mother, so it's important for doctors to monitor women with preeclampsia.

In addition to high kynurenic acid levels, the following factors increase a woman's risk of developing preeclampsia:

  • Women experiencing their first pregnancy
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Younger women

If you believe that you or your child has been seriously harmed or killed because of a hospital's negligence involving preeclampsia or eclampsia, contact an experienced Ohio pregnancy complications lawyer to discuss your rights to legal recourse.
