You are correct, there are no prevention strategies for preeclampsia which have been shown to be effective. At this point, frequent MD visits, blood pressure measurements and checks for protenuria are you best option for early detection.

I am currently 23 weeks pregnant. I am getting increasingly anxious and worried because, in my first pregnancy, I developed preeclampsia at 33 weeks. My son was born at 34 weeks. Is there anything I can do to reduce my chances of developing this disease again. I have read enough to know that I can not prevent it completely. PLEASE HELP.
