Semalam ada sahabat yang bercerita berkenaan isteri beliau yang menderita pre-eclampsia bagi setiap kali mengandung.
Pre-eclampsia adalah darah tinggi yang dialami oleh 1 dalam 20 orang wanita mengandung.
Artikel berikut menyebut berkenaan supplemen yang boleh diambil untuk membantu merawat dan menguruskan pre-aclampsia. sekurang-kurangnya membantu agar tidak terjadi kelahiran pra matang dan komplikasi kelahiran/kehamilan yang lain yang boleh mengancam nyawa ibu dan bayi. Ayuh
Supplements for Managing Preeclampsia
Whether used as a culinary seasoning or taken as a powdered capsule, garlic is one of the most effective natural treatments for all forms of hypertension. Although its effect on preeclampsia itself remains unstudied, numerous placebo-controlled studies, including groundbreaking recent research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, have confirmed that it is capable of lowering both systolic and diastolic blood pressure because it contains the antihypertensive compound hydrogen sulfide. Garlic’s ability to reduce blood pressure eliminates one of the most problematic symptoms of preeclampsia.
An article published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology stated that preeclampsia may be associated with low levels of selenium. Although this new discovery has not yet been studied in detail, this may be an important step in advancing the natural treatment options for women who have preeclampsia. Selenium supplementation, as part of a carefully managed treatment plan, might both prevent and treat symptoms associated with pregancy-induced hypertension.
It may be sound like a joke, but semen is actually believed to be one of the most effective treatments for pre-eclampsia. Several studies have shown that women who have more exposure to their partner’s semen are less likely to develop pre-eclampsia than women who only sporadically have contact with their partners’ sperm. Frequent contact with the semen of the fetus’s father might work as both a prevention and a treatment for pregnancy-induced hypertension. Exposure to the semen can be either oral or vaginal.
The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology published an article based on a 2006 study by the world health organization, which concluded that calcium supplementation does not generally prevent preeclampsia. However, the study did find that calcium supplements given to women with preeclampsia worked to reduce the frequency of severe complications related to the condition.
From 1997 to 2001, the University of Pittsburgh conducted a study which found that vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women is often linked to pre-eclampsia and the complications that may be associated with it. The study found that women who had adequate levels of vitamin D were less likely to develop the condition, and that the women who suffered from severe preeclampsia-related complications had the lowest levels of the vitamin, on average. As a result of this study, most obstetricians and midwives now recommend vitamin D supplemenation at all stages of pregnancy.
Preeclampsia can be a dangerous condition, but it is manageable for most women. Combined with a healthy diet and conventional treatments prescribed by your doctor or midwife, you may find that natural supplements may help to both prevent and treat pregancy-induced hypertension and the complications that it causes.
