New research confirms that high doses of vitamin D supplements can lead to fewer complications during delivery, but to reduce the chance of the first pregnant woman posing.
This is a correspondent in Rome, announced today by the Danish physician and Dr. Gitte Rasmussen Bloch in 2016 ECTS, the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) 43rd Annual General Assembly.
Dr. Rasmussen to have been 193 women with low levels of vitamin D, and all who are planning a pregnancy test reports in Aarhus, Denmark, to attend a single Center. These tests have been Dr. Rasmussen and colleagues from Aarhus University Hospital, conducted in Denmark.
Dr. Rasmussen said:
Women of childbearing age are often found to have low vitamin D levels, which are associated with low birth weight, decreased fertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes related. Our aim is to look at the impact of vitamin D supplementation on women with vitamin D levels in these areas is low
20,193 women ages – 40, is planning to become pregnant, had 25-hydroxyvitamin D (also known as 25-hydroxy vitamin D, the most accurate way to measure the levels of vitamin D) of less than 50 nmol / L, which is in inadequate border level. Before conception, they are assigned to a group, a group of vitamin D3 and is given a daily dose of 70mcg 35mcg daily supplement, matches, while the placebo group. Women continue the trial until 16 weeks after birth and evaluate its 25OHD level, birth weight, fertility and any complications.
It envisaged 56% for 12 months within the women in the placebo group was 38%, 29% and 33%, taking 70mcg supplement taking 35mcg supplement. 44% of people can not imagine.
Dr. Rasmussen continued:
The two of us, we evaluated four areas found a significant difference. At the same time under the daily dose of vitamin D3 did not significantly affect the chances of pregnancy, higher 70mcg daily supplementation significantly reduces the chance of pregnancy. On the other hand, further confirmed that the risk of complications during childbirth are advantageous because they are a combination of vitamin D3 group (23% risk) than in the placebo group (52% risk) significantly less frequently.
However, birth weight was not significantly different between those treated with vitamin D3 and those receiving placebo; there was no difference between the groups for any safety measures.
Dr. Rasmussen concluded:
High doses of vitamin D3 can reduce the likelihood of conception, but with fewer complications during childbirth, although not increase birth weight.
