about

Describes changes in the metabolism of important nutrients during pregnancy and lactation, including the physiological basis for the changes and their implications for nutrient requirements and assessment. Considers such issues as inter-relationships between endocrine changes and nutrient metabolism at the tissue, cellular, and molecular level; alterations in nutrient binding proteins; the efficiency of nutrient absorption and retention; and the impact on maternal as well as fetal nutritional status. The 25 papers are from an August 1992 conference in Helsinki, Finland. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
