Prenatal multivitamins linked to lower autism risk

Thomas Frazier is chief science officer of Autism Speaks, an advocacy group. "The finding of multivitamin use associated with lower risk of autism spectrum disorder with intellectual disability is consistent with previous studies," he said.

Expectant mothers and women planning to become pregnant should talk with their doctors and follow the physician's recommendations, Frazier said.

Those trying to conceive "may benefit from starting multivitamin supplementation before getting pregnant," he said.

However, DeVilbiss said it's too early to recommend multivitamins specifically for lowering autism risk.

"From a single study, we can't make any definitive statement or policy recommendations, because the results of other studies have been inconsistent," she said.

Because the study was observational, it's possible that women who take a multivitamin during pregnancy might engage in other healthy behaviors that account for the reduced autism risk, DeVilbiss said.

What is the best multivitamin for me?

I am eighteen years old and female. I did research on some popular multivitamins, and they all seem to have their fair share of side effects: nausea, stomach pains (Centrum), odors and other weird things. Is there one that has all the nutritional value

Can I give my 2 and a half year old both a multivitamin and a vitamin d supplement?

We are trying to protect against the h1n1 virus and other seasonal flues so we did some research and found out that Vitamin D is good for you. We dont get much sun where we live and my daughter doesn't drink enough milk to get the vitamins from it so


Your system doesn't make vitamin D but you can also get too much and cause problems. I am vitamin D deficient and get prescription supplements weekly but my Dr said only take what she gives me, it's dangerous to get too much. I would call the pediatrician

At the age of 2 1/2 I wouldn't give my child any type of medication/supplement without approval from his/her pediatrician.
