Your Question

I have nail-patella syndrome. Can you tell me if the risk for pre-eclampsia in pregnancy is increased significantly for a woman over the age of 35? This will be my second pregnancy and I did not have any issues with my first child except for a minimal amount of proteinuria at 20 weeks.

Can you tell me if the risk for pre-eclampsia in pregancy is increased significantly for a woman over the age of 35?

Although age is only one of the risk factors for developing pre-eclampsia, it appears that the risk is highest for pregnant women younger than 20 and older than 40.[1][2][3]

Are women with nail-patella syndrome at an increased risk to develop pre-eclampsia?

Yes. In pregnancy, women with nail-patella syndrome appear to have an increased risk of pre-eclampsia. Kidney problems may present during (or be exacerbated by) pregnancy. This should be considered when dealing with pregnant women who are affected by nail-patella syndrome, whether or not they have diagnosed renal abnormalities. Such pregnancies may be regarded as high risk and should be managed appropriately.[4][5][6]
