No salt, No Oil Diet For Pregnancy Induced Hypertension

Posted on: February 19, 2010

Pregnancy induced hypertension is an all too common problem. Hypertension is a serious medical condition that requires medical intervention. One of the most common ways to control elevated blood pressure is to use prescription hypertension medication.

One can use a variety of spices to add some taste to your food. (Garlic powder, white pepper…) I know it’s hard, but it will be over in a few weeks. One can also try the option of having lots of fruit and Veggies.  

Unlike regular hypertension, pregnancy induced hypertension is not largely impacted by the woman’s sodium intake. Only reducing your sodium intake in order to control blood pressure simply will not work. Most doctors will place pregnant women with hypertension on a low sodium diet in order to help women make more healthy food choices. Also, lowering the amount of salt in your daily diet may help reduce some of the swelling you are experiencing as a result of pregnancy induced hypertension.

Most doctors will prescribe a high protein diet for pregnant women to follow throughout the remainder of their pregnancy. 100 grams of lean protein is the recommended norm. Many women find they have more energy and gain less excess weight as a result of their hypertension diet. However, the best incentive is the healthy newborn baby that will be born.
