Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency as one of the leading risk factors for preeclampsia, and possibly a simple, modifiable risk. Data sources: Three cohorts of gravid women between 1994-2010 in the United States, Canada, and Sweden.
Study eligibility criteria, appraisal, and synthesis methods: Gravid women had serum banked during the first and second trimester and maternal serum was measured for vitamin D 25(OH)D.
Results: With maternal serum concentration of vitamin D 25(OH)D over 50nmol per L there was a decline in the risk of preeclampsia.
