Background/Objectives:There are several biomarkers for measuring iron deficiency (ID) in pregnancy, but the prevalence of ID and its association with inflammation and adverse pregnancy outcomes is inconclusive. The aim of this work was to describe the prevalence and determinants of first trimester ID and associations with pregnancy and birth outcomes.Subjects/Methods:A record-linkage cohort study of archived serum samples of women attending first trimester screening and birth and hospital data… CONTINUE READING
