DNA Study 2014

Supplying the specific needs of the expectant mother through appropriate dietary management is the basis for the successful course of a pregnancy. Especially with women affected by PCOS, it is particularly important to provide specific micronutrients because of the underlying metabolic disbalance.

Potential risks for a pregnancy:

  • Premature births (premature birth refers to the birth of an infant before completion of the 37th week of pregnancy)
  • Miscarriage (abortion)
  • Preeclampsia, also known as toxemia of pregnancy, is a condition where the woman has excessively high blood pressure and too much protein being excreted via the urine. This condition affects approximately one in every 10 women.
  • Neural tube defects in babies (the fetus having an “open back”, for example, which can lead to death in the womb in the most severe cases)

Solution to the problem:

  • Reduction of the risk for mother and child
  • Reduction of the premature birth rate and preeclampsia rate
  • Reduction of the risk of neural tube defects
