Pre-eclampsia?
I wrote to you a week ago. My BP went up from 120/70 to 140/86 and they found traces of Glucose in my urine. I live 900km from the nearest hospital, should I be worried or not?

Thank you

If there is no protein in your urine, then you are still okay though you will need careful monitoring. Your GP should be able to check your blood pressure and urine. In terms of the glucose, they will probably do a more formal sugar test. Wait and see what the result is.
