Prevention of vascular dysfunction after preeclampsia

In particular, preeclampsia has emerged as an independent risk factor for maternal cardiovascular disease and has recently been recognised as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in children exposed in utero. Preeclampsia and cardiovascular disease may share important pathophysiological and molecular mechanisms and further investigation into these is likely to offer insight into the origins of both conditions.

Yes, you *and your kids* are more likely to have cardiovascular disease. Lifestyle's about all we've got for prevention at the moment, so now that we're in the "official risk factors" it's a good plan to follow up with your internists and make sure your pediatrician knows to note this in the kiddo's chart.
