ABSTRACT

Preeclampsia has been called a disease of theories. One theory proposes a complex relationship between nutritional imbalance and the pathophysiology of this disease. The theoretical importance of selected nutrients is considered through reference to several recent basic research studies and clinical trials. With the clinical prevention of preeclampsia as a focus, suggestions for outpatient nutritional counseling, dietary alteration, and nutrient supplementation will be offered.
