Follow advice: My best advice to you is to follow the advice of your obstetrician (who knows you best and is in the best position to time the delivery of your baby - which is the ultimate "cure" for preeclampsia).

Preeclampsia : That is a good question, it is easier to tell you the treatment than the cause. The treatment is delivery of the fetus and magnesium for the mother. Also concerning is that women who have this are at increased risk of hypertension for the rest of their life.

Familial: The pathogenic mechanisms underlying pre-eclampsia remain to be elucidated; however, immune maladaptation, inadequate placental development and trophoblast invasion, placental ischaemia, oxidative stress and thrombosis are all thought to represent key factors in the development of disease. Furthermore, all of these components have genetic factors that may be involved in the pathogenic changes.
