Vitamin D

Am I Vitamin D deficient?

New data shows one third of SA women do not get enough Vitamin D in pregnancy. With so many things to think about during pregnancy, it can be difficult for expectant mothers to keep up, particularly with the latest advice on how to stay healthy. Vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy has been linked to several conditions including high blood pressure and preeclampsia in expectant mothers, and low calcium levels, rickets and myopathy (muscle disease) in newborns. Current South Australian guidelines recommend that low-risk women should take daily supplements containing 400IU of Vitamin D.
