Pregnancy hypertension 임신성 고혈압
Blood pressure that is higher than normal is called hypertension.
If your blood pressure, which was high before you became pregnant, continues to be high during pregnancy, it is not called gestational hypertension.
When high blood pressure in a pregnant woman is caused by pregnancy, it is called gestational hypertension.
Gestational hypertension usually develops after the 20th week of pregnancy.
It can occur in 8% of pregnant women, and it is common for high blood pressure to return to normal blood pressure after delivery.
Gestational hypertension is a type of preeclampsia.
Gestational hypertension should be treated appropriately to lower blood pressure to normal. Copyright ⓒ 2014 John Sangwon Lee, MD., FAAP
