Vitamin D and Preeclampsia, Joining the Dots – Professor Yuping Wang, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Centre

health and medicine

Preeclampsia is a common but serious complication of pregnancy that can harm both mother and baby. Recent research has identified vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for developing preeclampsia and also the beneficial effects of vitamin D supplementation on this pregnancy disorder, but the mechanisms for this are still not clear. Professor Yuping Wang at Louisiana State University has been investigating this question by studying the effects of vitamin D on the placenta.
