Pregnancy, nutrition and parasitic infection of rural and urban women in northeast Thailand.
Outcome of pregnancy as well as nutritional status and intake, haemoglobin, albumin and parasitic infection rate of pregnant women from the villages and of women in a high socio-economic class from the urban sector in Northeast Thailand were investigated.
Females in the rural areas get pregnant at a younger age.
Generally, the nutritional status of urban women is better than that of their rural counterparts.
Differences in haemoglobin between the groups could only be observed at the onset of pregnancy because pregnant rural women were treated frequently with iron tablets.
No difference in the albumin level could be observed between groups.
