Modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease among women with and without a history of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
Women with a history of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) (i.e. pre-eclampsia, gestational hypertension and chronic hypertension) are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Little is known about the rates of modifiable risk factors for CVD (i.e. unhealthy diet, physical inactivity/sedentary behaviour, smoking, excessive alcohol intake, excess body weight and poor mental health) following HDP. Our aim is to: a) describe the rates of individual and multiple modifiable risk factors for CVD among women following a HDP. b) compare the odds of individual and multiple modifiable risk factors for CVD between women with and without a history of HDP
