Why high-fat diet increases pre-eclampsia risk
Washington: Pre-eclampsia is a relatively common pregnancy disorder that is characterized by high blood pressure and high quantity of protein in blood.
In a recent study pregnant rats were fed a high-fat diet for 20 days.
The scientists found that these pregnant rats experienced preeclampsia-like syndromes such as hypertension and proteinuria.
Simultaneously, metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 mRNA and protein expressions were upregulated in the rat hippocampus.
These findings indicate that increased expression of metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 promotes the occurrence of high-fat diet-induced preeclampsia in pregnant rats.
Therefore, the control of fat intake is significant for the prevention of pregnancy-induced eclampsia.
The study has been published in the Neural Regeneration Research.
