Women need to attain good nutritional status before, during and after pregnancy to optimize maternal health and reduce the risk of birth defects and chronic disease in their children in later adulthood. Neural Tube Defects (NTDs) are the most common congenital malformation in Indian population. NTD has been the subject of more studies than any other congenital anomaly not only because of the ease with which this disorder can be detected, but also because of their importance as a cause of fetal death and malformation where strong interaction between environmental and genetic factors in causation has been documented.

Abstract


Women need to attain good nutritional status before, during and after pregnancy to optimize maternal health and reduce the risk of birth defects and chronic disease in their children in later adulthood. Neural Tube Defects (NTDs) are the most common congenital malformation in Indian population. NTD has been the subject of more studies than any other congenital anomaly not only because of the ease with which this disorder can be detected, but also because of their importance as a cause of fetal death and malformation where strong interaction between environmental and genetic factors in causation has been documented.
