Iron supplementation during pregnancy.

Abstract

As pregnancy proceeds most women show hematologic changes suggesting iron deficiency. In this study iron dynamics are investigated by determining concentrations of hemoglobin, serum ferritin and serum transferrin in two groups of pregnant women. One group did not receive iron, the other received 105 mg iron/day. Without iron supplementation normal maternal iron stores are almost exhausted during the second and third trimester of pregnancy.
