Mandeva: I am 5 months pregnant. This is my second pregnancy and during my first pregnancy I had high levels of albumin in my blood and was diagnosed with toxicosis. Please tell me what is the reason for this and how to avoid it? I currently have good albumin.
Walter Last: Avoid cows milk, sweet food and gluten products. Eat mainly fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes, goats cheese and fish. Drink much peppermint and in the last month raspberry leaf tea. Take a magnesium supplement with most meals, e.g. 200 to 250 mg 3 times daily. Also take a multivitamin once or twice a day, and frequently take acidophilus and other lactobacteria cultures, but not in cows milk. Magnesium deficiency in pregnancy can cause high blood levels of albumin.
