Gestational Nightblindness Among Women Attending a Public Maternity Hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Report) Journal of Health Population and Nutrition read online review & book description:

INTRODUCTION The impact of vitamin A deficiency on reproductive health, in terms of its repercussions on maternal and infant health, has been well-documented (1-5). Identification of women at risk of vitamin A deficiency during pregnancy allows for intervention, aimed at improving maternal hepatic vitamin A reserves and preventing insufficient placental transfer to the foetus, as observed in cases of severe maternal deficiency (6,7). The measures currently recommended for the prevention and treatment of gestational vitamin A deficiency and nightblindness are based on supplementation, food enrichment with vitamin A, and alimentary diversification (4,8,9), always considering the ingestion amount safe for each biological moment (10).
