Abstract

Objective: To estimate the levels of zinc and copper in the cases of preeclampsia. To know the importance of the same in pregnancy.
Materials and Methods: 30 preeclamptic cases and 30 pregnant women with normal blood pressure were estimated for serum zinc and copper levels.
Results: The levels of the trace elements, zinc and copper were found to be decreased in preeclamptic pregnancy when compared to the normal pregnancy without complications.
Conclusion: The decreased levels of zinc and copper in preeclampsia might be responsible for the complications in pregnancy as well as post-pregnancy complications.

Keywords: Zinc, Copper, Preeclampsia, Pregnancy.
