Vitamin D during Pregnancy


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, rickets, secondary hyperparathyroidism and asthma.
