May is National Preeclampsia Awareness Month. 

This is a condition that only occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects the mother and unborn baby.  It affects around 5-8% of pregnancies and is a rapidly progressive condition.  Some of the symptoms include:  swelling, sudden weight gain, headaches high blood pressure, protein in the urine and changes in vision.  Pregnancy Induced Hypertension, Toxemia and HELLP syndrome are other terms related to preeclampsia.  Proper prenatal care is essential to diagnose and manage preeclampsia.

 

May is also National
Osteoporosis Month.
This is a loss of bone density that can occur as we age.  One in two women over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.   This condition is the cause for over a million broken bones each year, along with back pain, spinal problems and loss of independence.  Many affected people don't even realize that they have this condition until they have a fracture.  For the most part, once bone has been lost it cannot be replaced.  So the focus is to maintain existing bone and stop further loss.  Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help slow or stop the loss of bone mass.
