I see a lots of children with respiratory challenges in my clinic.
What if I tell you that 10% of those can be avoided?
9.3% of moms suffer from Anemia during pregnancy. (Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)
Iron deficiency is one of the most common complications of pregnancy.
A recent study compared anemia rates with childhood asthma rates and found that anemia during pregnancy led to a 3 TIMES increase in early-onset wheezing.
It also leads to a 50% chance that a child develops asthma by age 6.
Iron deficiency is just a marker for other nutritional deficiency. Earlier studies have found that deficiencies of selenium, vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, vitamin E, and folic acid can contribute to respiratory development problems in babies.
Protecting your baby’s lungs during pregnancy starts with a healthy diet.
