Abstract

Aim: Hyperemesis gravidarum (HEG) is characterized by severe nausea and vomiting, weight loss and nutritional deficiency. Although exact cause of this condition is still a matter of debate, contribution of oxidative stress to pathogenesis of HEG was demonstrated in some studies. The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic value of ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) concentration and IMA/albumin ratio (IMAR) in HEG patients.
