Vitamin D during Pregnancy

July 25th, 2012 by DoctorZaidi

During pregnancy, fetus depends upon mother for the vitamin D supply. Make sure you have a good level of vitamin D during pregnancy, which is 50-100 ng/ml (125-250 nmol/L), measured as 25-OH Vitamin D. Don’t count on Prenatal vitamin to provide you with enough vitamin D as it contains only 600 IU which is a miniscule amount of vitamin D. Most pregnant women require 2000-5000 IU per day.

Low vitamin D during pregnancy is associated with high risk of pre-eclampsia, hypertension, Cesarean-Section in mother, and in the newborn it can cause soft skull bones, low calcium level, and asthma.

Stress Management Quote By Dr. Zaidi

Live in your field of awareness, created by your five senses: what you see, hear, taste, smell and touch. If it is not in your field of awareness, it is unreal for you at that moment.
