Re: Aspirin to prevent Pre-E?

Pre-E does have to do with blood flow issues to the placenta, but I don't think you are high risk enough to worry about the aspirin. A normal amount of protein is great, but too much can actually stress your body. The Brewer diet has been dis proven in the last several years. It probably did help women who were truly nutritionally deficient, but as a rule, we are not. You were probably spilling some protein because you were dehydrated.

I have to respectfully disagree. I think people are still nutritionally deficient. Perhaps not to the same degree as sixty or seventy yrs ago, but the typical American diet is grossly lacking in many important areas.

I would be interested in seeing studies that disprove the Brewer diet.

I have also read that the Brewers diet has been disproven, and heard it can be dangerous.

My MW had me take aspirin to help prevent pre-e until 37 weeks along with magnesium and D3

Re: Aspirin to prevent Pre-E?

Interesting reading (and links) regarding information on the 'ineffectiveness' of the brewer diet.

http://navelgazingmidwife.squarespac...be-damned.html


I've had PIH and HELLP with baby #1, PIH and preeclampsia with baby #2, and so far I've gone from picture perfect BP to 'borderline' BP already at 12wk with baby #3. Now that I've hit the 2nd trimester - or am right here at it - I've started cal/mag and 10,000 IU of D3. Regular physical activity, regular rest, lots of water, and a healthy balanced diet. We'll see how it goes...
