Obesity is a medical condition of excess body fat accumulated overtime, while overweight is a condition of excess body weight relatively to the height. According to the Body Mass Index(BMI), a BMI between 25 to 29.9 is considered over weight, while a BMI of over 30 is an indication of obesity. According to the statistic, 68% of American population are either overweight or obese.

You can calculate your BMI index BMI= weight (kg)/ height (m2)

The Studies of Preeclampsia and Obesity

Preeclampsia is a major public health issue, associated with a significant maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Among young women, obesity is especially important because maternal obesity confers an increased risk ofpreeclampsia, a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy. According to the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, Recently, extensive vascular infiltration of neutrophils and vascular inflammation has been reported in both preeclamptic women and obese women. Therefore, if the vasculature of obese women is inflamed, they could be at increased risk of developing preeclampsia when they become pregnant and are exposed to the additional burdens of pregnancy, posted in PubMed. Other study, posted in PubMed, indicated that the risk of preeclampsiaand eclampsia increased significantly with increasing BMI and decreasing age. Extremely obese teenagers were almost four times as likely to developpreeclampsia and eclampsia compared with nonobese women aged 20-24 years (adjusted odds ratio [95% confidence interval] = 3.79 [3.15-4.55]). Whereasobesity elevated the risk for preeclampsia and eclampsia among all women in the study, teenagers were most at risk because of the combined effects of young age and obesity.
