Magazine Inject

Postby cara » Wed Apr 06, 2005 07:38 am

Hey all-

I remember seeing something about this on my local news not too long ago and then it was a small inject in the American Baby magazine this month. It was a research project that showed that a Dr can test protein in the urine and predict if you will have Pre-e up to 2 months before you even show symptoms. It also stated that the testing is not yet available. Does anyone know more about this?? If it is close to being available?

From what I have read they say it is 2 or 3 years away from being developed. They say it will be a routine test done during prenatels and will be able to pin point the at risk moms.
