LIVELINES: WOMEN'S HEALTH CARE CALLS

A new study adds to the mounting evidence that suggests all women of childbearing age should take a folic acid supplement.

A large study of pregnant women in Norway found those who took a folic acid supplement in early pregnancy, starting four weeks before conception through eight weeks gestation were significantly less likely to have children with speech delays.

Dr. Kirk Brody was our guest this morning. He says he agrees with this study and urges women to take pre-natal vitamins a few months before they plan on starting a family. He also talked about a number of studies currently underway at his office such as diabetes, and over active bladders.
