The present study was undertaken to understand the changes in the biochemical parameters in serum and urine such as blood urea nitrogen, uric acid, LDH (Lactate dehydrogenases), platelet count, serum protein, 24 hour urinary creatinine and protein which would help in early diagnosis of preeclampsia and women at high risk of developing the disease and also to investigate the role of BUN:Cr as a preeclampsia predictor and as prognostic marker of underlying prerenal damage in preeclamptic women.
