  1. High dose vitamin A supplementation of breast-feeding Indonesian mothers : effects on the vitamin A status of mother and infant.

    Article - En anglais

    For regions where vitamin A deficiency is common, high dose ritamin A supplementation of lactating mothers is currently recommended, but the effects of this intervention have not been carefully evaluated.

    We conducted a randomized, double-blind trial in which 153 Indonesian mothers 1-3 wk postpartum received either a capsule containing 312 mumol of vitamin A as retinyl palmitate or a placebo.

    Mothers' serum retinol concentrations in the vitamin A group tended to be lower than in the placebo group at baseline but higher at 3 mo postpartum (1.39 vs. 1.24 mumol/L, P=0.03) and 6 mo postpartum (1.23 vs. 1.08 mumol/L, P<0.01).

    The milk retinol concentrations of the vitamin A group were higher than those of the placebo group by 0.48 to 1.18 mumol/L at 1-8 mo postpartum (P<0.05).
