There's an expanding research field looking at the effect of low dose asprin on vascular epithelium and consequences for hypertension. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if this wasn't the relevent mechanism associated with potential protective effects rather than via anti-coagulation.

Sorry, I guess I'm not following your question, then! Can you say a little bit more?

Both do thin the blood but asprin is an entirely different family of medicines.

If I understand right, aspirin in a blood-thinner, just a less potent one than lovenox.

So the aspirin idea could pose difficulty to asthmatics due to a sensitivity risk to asprin that can worsen the degree of asthma attacks. This occurs in 2 to 5 percent of asthma population. There are possible medicines that could decrease those risks..i'm not a dr and I'm typing without my glasses:) but I'm curious to see if blood thinning could make an improvement

It's a bit of pseudoscience that tries to explain preeclampsia as a consequence of our inadequate diets. But someone over there reads our stuff and has already taken care of it. :)

Sorry...there is already someone talking about diet and preeclampsia and Caryn (the moderator) usually has solid explanations for those arguments.
