Serum retinol, bêta-carotene, alpha-tocopherol and cholesterol in healthy French children.
Age- and sex-specific reference intervals of data derived from a healthy paediatric population are presented for retinol, bêta-carotene, alpha-tocopherol, cholesterol and related proteins in serum.
Age was an important covariate for the micronutrient concentration values.
Retinol was highly correlated with alpha-tocopherol and cholesterol.
Strong correlation was found with both bêta-carotene and cholesterol.
Serum levels were considered for their appropriateness as indicators of micronutrient status.
