Family History Of Toxemia Preeclampsia
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.
Mold: This is claimed to be a cause of everything from infertility to insanity. Now pre-eclampsia. You will not be able to "prove" this in the scientific sense, but if you can find sufficient statistical correlation you may be able to convince a jury. This is a constant issue in litigation and one of the things that helps to enrich tort lawyers.
What are ways to prove mold exposure to be the cause of pre-eclampsia toxemia complications? Http://www. Altmeds. Com/toxicitytoxemia/description
Unknown: There continues to be much research and scientific debate about the causes of preeclampsia. The web- site you note suggests toxemia and toxicity can be interchangeable---that is not true in the obstetric community. It also suggests preeclampsia may be caused by "toxins". That is an over simplification. There is no good data to prove mold exposure causes preeclampsia.
Multiple: Swelling especially in the hands/face, headaches, blurry vision, nausea or vomiting are warning signs. If you have any of the above symptoms - see your doctor right away. Your doc will check your blood pressure & your urine for protein to check for toxemia (preeclampsia, pih-pregnancy induced hypertension). Straight to l&d if you have abdominal pain (esp over your liver), vision loss, or seizures.See 1 more doctor answer
Many systems fail: Pneumonia, usually due to bacteria, but some viruses, causes failure of many organs, toxemia usually applies to pregnancy complications, not always associated with pneumonia. To answer your question properly, you need to define your question, whether it refers to pregnancy, or patients very ill with pneumonia who are not pregnant. And die from life threatening pneumonia.See 1 more doctor answer
Delivery: Toxemia is only relieved or cured with the delivery of the baby. If toxemia develops before the pregnancy is carried to full-term, medications, bedrest and close monitoring may be used to try to keep mother & baby stable until baby is a little more mature. Magnesium sulfate is used to reduce seizure risk prior to and during delivery, and other blood pressure medications may be used as well.
Preeclampsia: Toxemia of pregnancy, or preeclampsia, is a multi-system disorder involving high blood pressure and proteinuria in the last half of pregnancy. The degree of hypertension and proteinuria, and the presence or absence of other clinical manifestations of the disease vary from patient to patient. About 1/4 of patients will have nonspecific symptoms like headache, belly pain, and visual changes.

Not unless pregnant.: Recurrence risk is up to 25-65% (for severe, early onset pree). You can decrease that risk by maintaining a normal weight for your height, cohabitating with the same sexual partner for at least 2 years and taking Aspirin 81 mg daily prior to conception (or starting at the latest by 16 weeks). If you are not pregnant, there is nothing to worry about.
I suffered with toxemia two years ago, and since then have horrible pain in my neck--what can I do for it?
See your doctor: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.
>25% - really high.: I would recommend starting baby Aspirin (80-81 mg orally daily) before conception (or by 16 weeks at the latest) to decrease your risk by 15% or more. Preeclampsia predisposes you to future hypertension and neurological deficits (albeit subtle). Maternal-fetal medicine consultation is paramount in properly managing your high-risk pregnancy.See 1 more doctor answer
High BP in pregnancy: Eclampsia is a disease of pregnancy. It usually occurs in the third trimester as a result of severely elevated blood pressure. Preeclampsia occurs first. When recognized the patient is started on IV magnesium which prevents seizures. If the disease gets worse a seizure can occur (eclampsia). This puts the mother and baby at rick.See 2 more doctor answers
Eclampsia.: Eclampsia (greek for "shining") is known since antiquity to affect young women in their first pregnancy either before or after delivery. If is a vasoconstrictive disorder originating from poor placental implatnation possibly due to a form of allergic reaction of the maternal body to the paternal antigens of the conceptus. It tends to recur with future pregnancies and Aspirin may help prevent it.See 1 more doctor answer

Multifactorial.: Family history of preeclampsia (also known as toxemia of pregnancy) does increase the likelihood of preeclampsia in any given pregnancy, however it is not the most significant risk factor. Short sexual cohabitation, young or advanced maternal age (<20, >35) and first pregnancy (or previous affected pregnancy) are all much more potent risk factors.
Less than 24 hours: Toxemia or pre-eclampsia complicates about 8% of pregnancies. The cure for toxemia is delivery and the resolution usually starts in less than 24 hours. However, it can take days or weeks for the disorder to completely resolve - and it could recurr even several weeks after delivery after it has seemed to go away. Importantly, some cases of toxemia do not even start until after delivery.
