My wife has a history of high blood pressure in her family and is currently 16 weeks pregnant. We just received Quad test results that were taken at 15.5 weeks, and hCG and inhibin A levels were very high (2.44 MoM and 2.24 MoM respectively) with normal AFP and uE3 (1.30 and 1.02 MoM). Being a biochemist, she researched elevated hCG and inhibin A levels in pregnancy and found that they were linked to a development of pre-eclampsia. Is there a link between high hCG and inhibin A second trimester levels and pre-eclampsia? What should we do to avoid developing pre-eclampsia?
Thank you for any advice you can give.
