In brief: HELLP

Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets (hellp) syndrome is considered a variation of severe preeclampsia (a pregnancy complication).
It is diagnosed (as the name suggests) by testing for signs of ruptures red blood cells (hemolysis), elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets. Your OB doc will be watching for this as part of your prenatal care.
