My Body After Having HELLP
question greatly discussed is what are or can be the lingering effects
of HELLP? Are my new health problems because I had HELLP? Will
my Blood Pressure ever go back to where it was before I had HELLP? The
answer mainly lies in whether a underlying auto immune disorder triggered
the HELLP or not.
are some of the complaints that woman have had post HELLP?
*Increased Headaches or Migraines
*Numbness in the face or other
Sure some of these problems could
be coincidental but discussions among those who have had HELLP seem to
notice and increase in these areas. Again an underlying renal or
auto immune disorder will also present with some of these issues.
Those who have experienced a very severe case of HELLP which involves stroke,
infarctions or liver/kidney transplants will experience a whole different
set of problems.
are no studies out there that I am aware of that discusses the potential
for the after effects of having HELLP. I too have experienced numbness
and vision issues since having HELLP.
Some literature I have come across
has suggested that women who experience HELLP should have their kidneys
and livers looked at periodically to make sure they are functioning
on the correct levels.
Since no real study has been done
on women who have had HELLP and how their bodies are say 50 years down
the line it is impossible to say what other effects there might be.
