Common Questions and Answers about Dha pregnancy recommended dose


Avatar f tn At the moment I am 9 weeks pregnant and according to my laboratory results from 5th week (TSH 1.77 and fT4 14.71 (normal ranges 13.77-24.25) my dose of levothyroxine was doubled to 50 mcg. I would like to ask wheter I can or should take also some iodine supplements. If yes, what dose are recommended (I do not take prenatal multivitamin, only single vitamins adviced by my doctors, such as folates, B6, B12, selenium, zinc, vitamin D, DHA). Thank you very much for your answer.
Avatar n tn I should've mentioned I was on 125 mcg of synthroid, but since pregnancy by TSH shot up to 4.69 and my dosage was increased to 150 mcg. They haven't tested the Free T4 yet, but will this week. FYI first pregnancy was in '06 w/ ZERO complications, but am worried again. Wasn't on selenium last time. Thanks to whomever replies.
Avatar n tn yes i did.lol My mother in law recommended it after my husband and i were have problems ttc. I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!

1281900 tn?1320340002 Fish oil capsules contain both DHA and EPA. Supplements containing EPA may not be recommended for infants or small children because they upset the balance between DHA and EPA during early development. Pregnant women should talk to their doctor before taking fish oil supplements. Fish oil capsules may cause minor side effects, such as loose stools, abdominal discomfort, and belching. In addition, they may prolong bleeding time slightly.
223372 tn?1240924276 I received a presciption for a prenatal vitamin recently, but when I was pregnant with my DS a took GNC Prenatal with Iron throughout the entire pregnancy (okd by midwife). It was twice daily dose like yours and I never had any problems with them. I had a wonderful and healthy pregnancy and my son is perfect!

12426295 tn?1426879595 Today I went to check on some vitamins at the vitamin world but ones does not have iron, others does not have DHA, others have only 400 of folic acid when the recommended dose en that is 800. I'm going to check tomorrow on the ones you are suggesting me. Thank you!!
Avatar f tn I have been taking One A Day Prenatal which were recommended to me. I was told they are one of the best.
Avatar n tn Metafolin is a superior source of Folate. Prenate DHA also contains the recommended amount of DHA for pregnancy and lactation, 300mg. Neevo does not. Prenate DHA has been reformulated with Potassium Iodide. It is now called Prenate Essential. Neevo has not. The current recommendation is that all pregnant women should be supplimented with Iodine.
674725 tn?1367443230 So, what B vitamins are you taking ? I need to make a shopping list. The nurse told me the new recommended dose of folic acid is 5 mg so I've been taking a prenatal that has 1 mg, then I take two or three 1mg extra folic pills plus one 81mg aspirin daily. Do you separate your pills throughout the day or take them in one shot ? Just wonder if its okay to take them together. Oh, and don't you ( or anyone ) ever apologize for a "long" response.
Avatar f tn Although cmoretti is right for the most part...DHA supplements are actually proven most effective much later in pregnancy (late 2nd trimester to birth) when the brain is progressively forming and developing, then up to 2yrs after that. Once you become pregnant there are prescription prenatals with added DHA. Don't make yourself crazy buying supplements off the shelf...
Avatar f tn Benefits of Fish Oil Even if you don’t suffer from infertility, high-dose fish oil is the most important supplement you can take during pregnancy for several reasons, but most importantly for the development of the child’s brain. Long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for fetal brain development to provide your child the best possible mental advantage coming into this world.
1346723 tn?1300722341 Mothers at extra risk for having a baby with a spinal defect usually will be told to take 10 times the recommended dose of folic acid. This 4 mg dose is only recommended for women who have had family members with spina bifida or are on drugs that increase their risk, such as some epilepsy medicines. This high dose of folate has not been shown to benefit those at average risk. Other vitamins and minerals Babies are excellent nutrition magnets!
210951 tn?1203145344 hi- i am taking a few different types of recommended prenatal vitamins and they usually stipulate, i wouldve thought, if u have to take/ store them separately? What are you taking I am on (daily) folate, omega 3, vitamin C, chromium, zinc and a (twice daily) fruit/juice/grain concentrate. I also take Tribulus Day 1-14 and Vitex Day 14-28. Ive also heard Evening Primrose is good? Have you heard anything about its benifits?
Avatar f tn During pregnancy, it is recommended that you get at least 250 mg of Omega 3 every day. However, Omega 3 oils are especially important during the final trimester. It is during this time that your baby uses Omega-3 to form approximately 70% of her brain system. She is also working on the rest of her nervous system. Good Omega 3 Sources Omega 3 is best found in fish and fish oil products.
Avatar m tn The brain uses large amounts of DHA to function and also for protection. Of the two components of fish oils, DHA is the most important. It protects against excitotoxicity, reduces inflammation, and calms microglia. In addition, DHA repairs the injured nervous system. The dose is 1,000 milligrams a day. (The best brand is Neuromins, which can be found at www.vitacost.com.) • Silymarin. This component of the plant milk thistle, is commonly used to protect and heal the liver.
1765695 tn?1313673183 This diet allows more latitude and can still get a person to the recommended targets.The Ornish diet puts no restriction on calorie intake mainly because it’s hard to consume too many calories eating fruits and vegetables you’ll need to limit your calories on the South Beach Diet or a Mediterranean diet (another good one). A typical unrestricted diet for the average adult contains about 2,400 calories per day. Aim to keep your calorie intake to between 1,500 and 1,800 calories.
628735 tn?1273879377 Other side effects may include rapid heartbeat, hair loss, headache, dry mouth, nausea, rash, itching and bleeding between periods. Vitex is not recommended during pregnancy. It shouldn't be used by nursing women unless under the guidance of a qualified health professional. People with hormone dependent conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and cancers of the breast, ovaries, uterus or prostate shouldn't take vitex.
Avatar f tn only 2% at best of the omega-3 linolenic acid component is converted to the useful omega-3 fats DHA and EPA, and that is IF there are no omega-6 fats competing for uptake. Other than that, the linolenic acid in flax oil has no known use in the body, and flax oil obviously has shortcomings by containing a relatively high amount of inflammatory omega-6 linoleic acid.
Avatar m tn Yesterday, I took the the first weekly dose,but after taking this I am feeling weaker, I do not know why? Do I need to take Calcium Tablets along with Vitamin D3?

Avatar m tn what is the recommended preventive dosage for vit D? is 5000 IU every two weeks suitable?? my last vit D level was 60.
280891 tn?1261016650 Obviously it has something to do with hormonal changes (puberty, ovulation, pregnancy, and menopause). That's my theory anyways. What's my real theory? The body does an incredible job at eliminating toxins. It's what we have a liver and kidney for. It's amazing. People can drink alcohol and smoke a number of substances and take Tylenol, and guess what? Eventually it's gone. "Toxins" are not hidden parasites that hang out in extracellular material, people!
Avatar n tn I first noticed the severe itching during the last 3 months of my last pregnancy, of course this type of itching is common in pregnancy so I assumed it would go away once she was born. It has now been 4 months and I continue to have what I can only call"severe itching " on my lower legs and arms. The term itching doesnt even touch it though , it feels like someone is pouring acid on your skin or stabbing little needles in your leg.

Avatar n tn I had a Hep C treatment which wiped out my ovarian function, I wish I had known or the doctor had told me the side effects, because the H-C treatment was to clear the path for pregnancy. Now I am 43 and have FSH reading at 39. I am told my chance to pregnancy is around 1% and told to use donor egg. I am thinking of trying DHEA but no one out there will work with me.
