Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare serum calcium, total protein, and uric acid levels between hypertensive and healthy pregnant women. In this cross-sectional study, 100 healthy and 48 hypertensive pregnant women with singleton pregnancy who were at ≥ 28 weeks of gestation were included and serum calcium, total protein, and uric acid levels were compared between these two groups. Hypertensive group consisted of 28 subjects with mild preeclampsia, 17 with severe preeclampsia. Mean (±SD) serum calcium level was 7.88 (±0.94) mg/dl (range, 6.94-8.82) in hypertensive and 8.28 (±0.77) mg/dl (range, 7.51-9.05) in control group (P = 0.01). Mean (±SD) serum total protein level was 6.023 (±0.91) gr (range, 5.32-7.14) in hypertensive and 6.13±0.77 (5.36-6.9) in control group (P > 0.05). Mean (±SD) level of serum uric acid was 5.32 (±1.41) mg/dl (range, 3.91-6.73) in hypertensive and 4.55 (±1.14) mg/dl (range, 3.41-5.09) in control group (P = 0.001). Mean serum Ca level was significantly lower in hypertensive pregnant women in comparison with healthy ones. Considering this factor in prenatal care is important.
