HIGHER RISK IN BIRTH DEFECTS OF CHILDREN BORN FROM MOTHERS WITH DIABETES. WHAT YOU CAN DO TO REDUCE THAT RISK?
In an article published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, researchers found that diabetic women who were not taking folic acid supplements at the time of their conception may double the risk of having a child born with birth defects.
The researchers who were from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that, “Clinicians should encourage all patients contemplating pregnancy to initiate prophylactic (preventive) folic acid supplementation.”
A good way to get your folic acid would be to take a multiple vitamin containing between 400-800 mcg per day of folic acid and also contained at least 100 mcg per day of vitamin B-12.
