Does anyone know anything about Toxemia and what causes it? I did a search and couldn't find anything. My cousin is 32 wks preg and was diganosed yesterday with this. She is on bed rest the next 8 weeks. She has a dr appt Friday and they will do a ultasound...they may take the baby Friday. All I know is it's some sort of blood disease?

Her dr office is in the same building that she works in, so she called them because she wasn't feeling well. She took her blood pressure and it was at stroke level...they told her to get to the hospital immediately...can you believe she drove herself??!!

Re: Toxemia

Toxemia and preeclampsia are the same thing. You could probably find alot of info if you do a web search for preeclampsia.
