AbstractObjective: Erythrocyte sodium-lithium countertransport (SLC) is elevated in patients with essential hypertension, those with a family history of hypertension, and in normotensive first-degree relatives of hypertensives. Studies on pregnant women have failed to show any difference between normotensive subjects and those with established pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). We therefore studied erythrocyte SLC in second and third trimester primigravid women before the onset of clinical signs of PIH to evaluate the predictive value of this test.
