Serum Uric Acid Level in Primigravidae with Pre-Eclampsia:A Case Control Study from Karnataka
Introduction: Pregnancy inducedhypertension is an exclusive condition affecting 10% ofpregnant women. The study of uric acid in serum is an interesting problemespecially in normal pregnancy and pregnancy inducedhypertension (PIH). Objective: To compare the changes of serum uric acid level in healthy non pregnant, PIH and normotensive pregnant women. Methodology: Cross sectional observational study conducted in the Obstetrics and Gynecology department, hospital, Navodaya medical college , Raichur, Karnataka involving 30 each pregnant, PIH and non-pregnant women. Serum uric acid levels were measured and analysed the data using SPSS 23 version software. Results: Comparison ofmean serum uric acid level in pregnant normotensive (4.14±1.05) and in PIH women (6.03±1.61) was found significant. Comparison of mean serum uric acid level in pregnant normotensive women (4.14±1.05) and in non pregnant women ( 3.39±0.5) found significant. Mean serum uric acid level in PIH women was 6.03±1.61 whereas in non pregnant women was 3.39±0.5 (p<0.001). Conclusion:Serum uric acid level is at higher side in PIH women as compared to pregnant normotensives and non pregnant women in our study.
