In brief: Stress test for body
Consider any pregnancy a stress-test for the body and the female heart and vessels.
The preeclamptic women fail that test and are at increased risk for chronic hypertension and heart disease down the road - not as a consequence of preeclmapsia, but rather because of their genes, lifestyle, weight, activity and diet.
