Were you looking for information about Preeclampsia? Preeklampsia is a common misspelling of preeclampsia.
High blood pressure, swelling of the hands and face, and unexplained weight gain are all possible signs of preeclampsia. This dangerous condition occurs during pregnancy and is the leading cause of maternal and fetal death in the United States. Although the exact cause of preeclampsia is unknown, the condition is known to cause the blood vessels to narrow, decreasing blood flow to the kidneys, brain, liver, retina, and placenta. The only cure for preeclampsia is to deliver the fetus.
