Relative hypocalciuria has been reported in women with preeclampsia. However, there has been no systematic explanation for this finding. We measured serum and urinary calcium and serum calciotropic hormones in third trimester women with preeclampsia (n = 12, gestational hypertension and proteinuria) and with normotensive pregnancies (n = 24) to try to explain these changes. We confirmed that the women with preeclampsia have a relative hypocalciuria (2.9 +/- 0.7 vs. 6.5 +/- 0.2 mmol/day, P less… CONTINUE READING
