Preeclampsia is considered "silent" since the signs of preeclampsia can go undetected if one doesn't attend regular check-ups. Below are the physiological signs of PE.

  • High blood pressure (hypertension): reading higher than 140/90 mm Hg, or a substantial increase in systolic, diastolic or both blood pressures.
  • Protein in urine (proteinuria): urine protein excretion over 300 mg in 24 hrs.
