Introduction: To assess renal and hepatic functions along with the redox state in preeclampsia (PE) and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) pregnancies.
Design And Method: The study was conducted on 33 PE (mean age = 30 ± 5 years), 33 GDM (mean age = 30 ± 6 years) and age, gravida, parity, and ethnicity matched 25 normal pregnancies (NP). Biomarkers of redox status, renal and hepatic functions; aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), bilirubin, urea, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, uric acid, lipid peroxidation (MDA), total thiols (TSH), radical scavenging activities and ferric reducing antioxidant potentials of serum were measured.
