In present study, the prevalence of LBW
babies in anemic mothers was high 78.
Considering the teenage pregnancy LBW
was 50%, and in advanced age, pregnancy LBW
was found in 38 (55.
We concluded that the frequency of LBW
babies amongst women who suffer from prenatal depression during 3rd trimester of pregnancy by comparing with control in a military care setup is higher.
Never the less, several studies have reported that the mean birth weight and the incidence of LBW
vary greatly in different populations and communities and are affected by many social, demographic and health related factors (Wardlaw et al.
Mean values of mother's age for LBW
, VLBW, and ELBW groups were 29.
Gestational age is one of the most important predictors of LBW
, and we observed majority of LBW
were full term (IUGR) babies and it is shown 55.
10) we could not find any gender majority among LBW
We compared patients who were LBW
(Tables 2 and 3).
Dependent variables were offspring birth weight in grams (g), LBW
(birth weight < 2 500 g), preterm birth (gestational age < 37 weeks), and SGA (below the 10th percentile of birth weight for gestational age and sex of the Williams curves).
also has been associated with ART, but a large part of the elevated risk for LBW
among ART births has been attributed to an increased incidence of multiple gestations (3).
All the anthropometric measurements and nutrients measured namely total protein, albumin, cholesterol triglycerides, calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron were significantly lower in LBW
babies compared to term control babies.
Monty Panesar's attitude when he demanded to know "why" he didn't get an LBW
decision could be the thin end of the wedge and could lead to trouble from the crowds, also placing umpires in an embarrassing position of competence.
