Arpita Basu (Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences) co-authored a paper on the role of haptoglobin (Hp) phenotype in predicting risks of preeclampsia in women with Type 1 diabetes. Preeclampsia, a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy, is increased manifold in women with diabetes. Causes still remain unclear. The reported data show women with  Hp 2-2 phenotype had higher LDL and total cholesterol and subsequent onset of preeclampsia. Identification of Hp phenotype may lead to better managment of risks of preeclampsia.
