  1. 1. Effects of iron supplementation on iron status, health and neurological development in marginally low birth weight infants

    Author : Staffan Berglund; Magnus Domellöf; Olle Hernell; Michael K Georgieff; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Auditory brainstem response; behavior; breast feeding; cognition; erythropoietin; ferritin; growth; hemoglobin; hepcidin; human infant; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; iron supplementation; low birth weight; morbidity; neurodevelopment; nutritional requirements; randomized controlled trial; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    Abstract : Background Due to small iron stores and rapid growth during the first months of life, infants with low birth weight (LBW) are at risk of iron deficiency (ID). ID in infancy is associated with irreversible impaired neurodevelopment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Iron absorption and iron status related to diet : an experimental and epidemiological study

    Author : Per Tidehag; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; iron status; iron absorption; bioavailability; dietary fiber; phytate; calcium; radioiron; diet;

    Abstract : The absorption of iron from the diet is a major determinant of the iron status of an individual. Accurate measures of iron absorption are thus essential in the determination of the effects of diet composition on iron absorption and status. READ MORE

  3. 3. Iron absorption in man - diet modification and fortification

    Author : Michael Hoppe; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Iron absorption; Serum iron; Relative bioavailability; Elemental iron; Iron bioavailability; Iron fortification; Dietary modification; Developing countries;

    Abstract : Background: Iron (Fe) deficiency is globally the most common form of nutrient deficiency. The approach to combat this problem can be divided into two major strategies a): increasing the dietary Fe bioavailability by diet modification, or b): increasing the Fe intake through fortification.

  4. 4. Effects of Delayed versus Early Cord Clamping on Healthy Term Infants

    Author : Ola Andersson; Lena Hellström-Westas; Magnus Domellöf; Heike Rabe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; active management; birth; breast feeding; cord clamping; ferritin; growth; haemoglobin; human infant; infections; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; morbidity; neurodevelopment; randomised controlled trial; umbilical cord; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study maternal and infant effects of delayed cord clamping (≥180 seconds, DCC) compared to early (≤10 seconds, ECC) in a randomised controlled trial. Practice and guidelines regarding when to clamp the cord vary globally, and different meta-analyses have shown contradictory conclusions on benefits and disadvantages of DCC and ECC. READ MORE

  5. 5. IRON NUTRITION DURING EARLY CHILDHOOD. Factors influencing iron status and iron intake

    Author : Ann-Cathrine Bramhagen; Preventiv pediatrik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; feeding situation; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Pediatrics; Medicin människa och djur ; iron deficiency; Pediatri; maternal experinces; influencing factors; iron intake; child*;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to describe the prevalence of iron deficiency (ID) and factors influencing iron status and iron intake among otherwise healthy children. The specific aim in paper I+II was to describe the prevalence of ID among 2 ½-year-old children in relation to intake of cow's milk and follow-on formula. READ MORE
