Preeclampsia is essentially high blood pressure during pregnancy. High blood pressure can damage arteries, which can lead to severe complications. There has been some research on low PAPP-A levels and preeclampsia. There is also evidence that suggests low-dose aspirin during pregnancy can benefit expecting mothers who have preeclampsia. Aspirin is a blood thinner and can lower your blood pressure, and low doses are sometimes prescribed for high blood pressure during pregnancy. There is a big difference between the safety of low dose and regular or high dose aspirin. This episode dives into the research on low-dose aspirin and preeclampsia and discusses the pros and cons of taking aspirin to reduce the risk of developing preeclampsia.
