Even mild vitamin C deficiency may have negative effect on vascular function

he Magee-Womens Research Institute.

Women who have previously experienced preeclampsia, also known as toxemia and characterized by high blood pressure, swollen ankles and the presence of protein in the urine, have an even greater chance of developing the disorder in subsequent pregnancies. Other risk factors include maternal age of less than 25 or more than 35 years and preexisting hypertension, diabetes or kidney disease.

Preeclampsia is one of the leading causes of maternal, fetal and neonatal disability and death, said Dr. Roberts.
