Here are some more statistics regarding preeclampsia. Hope they help. Hypertension and preeclampsia are the leading cause of maternal death worldwide and can result in over 10,000 infant deaths in the U.S. alone. A recent medical breakthrough is helping to make these statistics a thing of the past. The MIST test is a completely non-invasive test that allows the physician to know 2 – 3 months in advance of the onset of preeclampsia. A treatment plan can then be put into place early, avoiding many of the complications of pregnancy induced hypertension, including bed-rest for the pregnancy's duration and the dangerous symptoms of preeclampsia. With the only known “cure” for preeclampsia being delivery, find out now how you can prevent that possibility. Visit http://www.misttechnologies.com/ for more information and at 16 – 22 weeks of pregnancy start asking your doctor for the MIST test.
