Study: Low Vitamin D Can Cause Pregnancy Complications

When it comes to prenatal health of mothers and infants, it is crucially important for doctors and nurses to recognize the signs of a potential complication as soon as possible. Time is often of the essence and an earlier response can have a big impact.

One recent study is highlighting another warning sign-doctors in Ohio and around the nation should pay attention to this research. The study concluded that low levels of vitamin D can indicate a higher risk of a wide range of serious and potentially dangerous complications. These pregnancy complications include preeclampsia, low birth size and various pre- or post-natal infections. 

A leading researcher said that the study "support[s] a goal of vitamin D sufficiency for all pregnant women." Doctors may be able to benefit pregnant mothers in several ways based on this research. First, all medical professionals should warn expectant mothers to carefully maintain their vitamin D levels. Second, when a mother has low levels of the vitamin, doctors and other medical staff should watch even more carefully for other signs of an imminent complication.

When doctors ignore or fail to notice these warning signs, they may be liable for medical malpractice. Malpractice lawsuits can give families the resources they need to help provide for the increased care needs of an injured or disabled infant.
