Abstract Low vitamin D (VitD) status is common among newborn infants, more so in temperate latitudes with evidence that maternal VitD deficiency is a major risk factor given that the neonate relies solely on maternal-fetal transfer of VitD. This scoping review was conducted to provide an overview of the latest evidence from studies regarding the impact of maternal risk factors on infant 25-hydryoxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentrations with a focus on studies in Canada and the United States. Several...

Abstract Background: A leaner body phenotype in infancy plays an important role in the early life prevention of obesity. However, there is a dearth of reference data for body composition in infancy. This study aimed to create a normative reference dataset for lean (LM) and fat (FM) mass and accretion rates in healthy infants. Methods: Healthy term-born infants (35 boys; 35 girls) were studied at ≤ 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 mo of age for growth and compared to World Health Organization standards. LM (g)...

The relationship between 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), parathyroid hormone (PTH) and metabolic traits appear to differ among ethnicities and may be influenced by obesity. The aim of the study was to examine the association of serum 25(OH)D or PTH with metabolic syndrome (MetS) while controlling for adiposity in black women. Using a cross-sectional study design, 209 urban black women aged ≥ 43 years from the North West Province, South Africa, were included. Multiple regression models were used t...

The rising prevalence of obesity and excessive adiposity are global public health concerns. Understanding determinants of changes in adiposity over time is critical for informing effective evidence-based prevention or treatment. However, limited information is available to achieve this objective. Cultural, demographic, environmental, and behavioral factors including socio-economic status (SES) likely account for obesity development. To this end, we related these variables to anthropometric measu...

Introduction: The relationship between 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), parathyroid hormone (PTH) and metabolic traits appear to differ among ethnicities and may be infl uenced by excess adiposity. Aim: To examine the association of serum 25(OH)D and PTH, respectively, with the metabolic syndrome (MetS) while controlling for adiposity in black women. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out among 209 urban black women aged ≥ 43 years from the North West Province, South Africa. The relation...

Introduction: Information on the relationship between body composition and bone health among African women is scarce. We examined the association between body composition(body mass index {BMI}, fat mass and lean mass) and bone health (bone mineral density {BMD} and fracture risk) in urban black South African women. Materials and Methods: BMD and body composition were measured in 189 postmenopausal black women using dualenergy X ray absorptiometry (DXA). Questionnaires were administered to examin...

Our study assessed the health profile of neonates in relation to anemia in pregnancy and pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH). This was a retrospective study where a systematic random sampling technique was used to select a total of 1046 case records of pregnant women registered for ante-natal care at Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, Lagos, Nigeria, between 2005 and 2009. Socio-demographic characteristics of the mothers, prevalence of anemia and PIH, and neonatal health profile were obtained fro...
