To assess vitamin D levels in eclampsia, preeclampsia and healthy pregnant women and the role of vitamin D deficiency in the etiology of preeclampsia (PE).
Forty healthy pregnant women, 83 preeclamptic and 42 eclamptic pregnant women were included. Maternal and infant medical records were reviewed. Blood samples were obtained from all groups. Demographics and serum vitamin D levels were compared between the groups.
No statistical differences were observed in age, gravidity, parity, weight, height and BMI between the three groups. Week of pregnancy and weight at birth in eclamptic and preeclamptic patients were lower compared to the healthy patients (p<0.001 and p<0.001, respectively). Systolic and diastolic blood pressures were higher in eclamptic (p<0.001) and preeclamptic patients (p<0.001) compared to the healthy pregnant group. The rate of cesarean section was found to be higher in preeclamptic and eclamptic patients (p<0.001). Vitamin D levels were lower in both preeclamptic and eclamptic patients compared to healthy normotensive pregnant women (p<0.001). Preeclamptic and eclamptic women were similar in terms of the data compared.
Vitamin D supplementation is considered to decrease the risk of both preeclampsia and eclampsiain the patient population at risk for vitamin D deficiency.
