Serum concentrations of iodine, thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3), thyrotropin (TSH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) during the last trimester of pregnancy, during labour, and in early puerperium of women with normal pregnancy or with intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR).

Abstract

In women with intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) concentrations tended to reduce during the last trimester of pregnancy. Parameters of thyroid function in maternal serum were not distinctly influenced by IUGR, except for high concentrations of iodine. Triiodothyronine (T3) concentrations in cord blood of normal… (More)
