Abstract Objective The primary aim of this study was to characterize the rate of adverse pregnancy outcomes in a multi-cultural group of low-income women. Methods Data were extracted from the Montreal Diet Dispensary’s database between June 2013 and December 2015. Risk was evaluated using logistic regression adjusted for covariates. Results Of the 1387 pregnancies, the prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) was 17∙2% (95% CI 15∙1, 19∙3), maternal anemia 44∙9% (95% CI 41∙9, 47∙9), and ...

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 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...
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...
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...

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...
