Abstract: Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy including gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia are among the most common complications associated with pregnancy, affecting 5-10 % of all pregnancies worldwide and some evidence indicated the role of nutrition in the development of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. The objective of the present study is to evaluate the role of nutrients consumption in normal and hypertensive disorders of antenatal women. The study was conducted in rural area of chandragiri, chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, India for a period of one year between june2010 -june 2011. Four hundred antenatal women are included in this study. In this study, out of 400 antenatal women, 70 women developed pregnancy induced hypertension. The incidence of pregnancy induced hypertension is more in women who consumed higher intakes of energy, mono unsaturated fattyacids, poly unsaturated fattyacids and lower levels of multivitamins, micro and macro nutrients. The present study concludes that consumption of high doses of total fats including saturated fats, mono and poly unsaturated fatty acids in early pregnancy and lower levels of micro, macro nutrients and multivitamins including potassium, magnesium, copper, vitamin C and vitamin K may increase the risk of developing hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.
