Risk Factors Associated With Preeclampsia In Healthy Nulliparous Women. The Calcium For Preeclampsia Prevention (CPEP) Study Group
Notes for this study:
||Non-randomized controlled trial
|Number of Subjects
Supplementation of calcium (2g) during the second half of pregnancy appears to reduce the risk of preclampsia. While there was an increased risk of preclampsia and hypertension as a result of higher than normal blood pressure before pregnancy and higher BMI calcium supplementation could not ablate that risk.
