Harskamp and Zeeman also found that the underlying mechanism for the remote effects of preeclampsia is complex and probably multifactorial. The risk factors that are shared by cardiovascular disease and preeclampsia are as follows:

  • Endothelial dysfunction

  • Obesity

  • Hypertension

  • Hyperglycemia

  • Insulin resistance

  • Dyslipidemia
