Tables 2 and 3 show data for hormonal and metabolic parameters at birth and at 8 years of age for the children included classified as intrauterine growth restriction

Babies were more likely to be small for gestational age, have intrauterine growth restriction
(OR, 2.16; 95% CI, 1.34-3.48; NNTH, 21), and be delivered preterm (OR, 1.35; 95% CI, 1.02-1.79; NNTH, 35).
Small for gestational age and intrauterine growth restriction
decreases cognitive function in young adults.
A combination of environmental, genetic, and epigenetic factors, still partially unknown, can be responsible for a condition in which a fetus is unable to reach its genetically determined growth potential: this condition is defined as intrauterine growth restriction
Background: Pregnant women, infants, and children are adversely affected by disasters resulting in an increased number of infants with intrauterine growth restriction
, low birth weight, and a small head circumference.
Her pregnancy was therefore at high risk for developing intrauterine growth restriction
. Her US Navy ObGyn was advised by a maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialist to monitor the pregnancy closely with frequent ultrasonography and other tests that were never performed.
