Abstract

Introduction: Vitamin D is an essential factor in the regulation of calcium and phosphorus balance. It is
synthesized in the skin but is also present in the diet.
Objective: To study the prevalence of pre eclampsia in vitamin D supplemented non supplemented
primigravida women.
Materials and Methods: Group I included 100 pregnant women who received vitamin D supplementation
in the form of oral cholecalciferol sachet 60,000IU weekly till 10 weeks along with routine iron, folic acid
and calcium supplementation. Group II comprised of 100 pregnant women who received only routine iron,
folic acid and calcium supplementation.
Results: Out of 200 patients, 22(11%) patients developed pre-eclampsia out of which 19 patients were not
supplemented with vitamin D. The p-value was 0.0004 making this correlation statistically significant. Out
of 200 patients, 19(9.50%) patients were managed with oral medication and 3(1.5%) required intravenous
labetalol. The p-value was 0.001 making this correlation statistically significant.
Conclusion: there is significant role of vitamin D supplementation in pregnant women in prevention of pre
eclampsia.
