Multivitamins during pregnancy linked to lower rates of autism with intellectual disability

Mothers who regularly took multivitamins during pregnancy were significantly less likely to give birth to children with autism and a co-occurring intellectual disability, according to new research out of Drexel University.

RELATED ARTICLES Nowhere to go: Young people with severe autism languish in hospitals 'Provocative' CHOP study identifies new potential risk factor for autism Penn to launch genetic research program on Asperger syndrome 

The research team at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute analyzed data collected over more than a decade in Stockholm, Sweden, finding that the 30 percent decline in risk was specifically linked to autism with attached intellectual disabilities. There did not appear to be a similar outcome for the development of autism without intellectual disabilities.

“A potential link between supplement use during pregnancy and autism is intriguing because it suggests a possible avenue for risk reduction,” said Brian Lee, associate professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health and senior author of the study.

I ask because my multivitamin already contains 400 IU of vitamin d.

Calcium needs vitamin D (and magnesium) to be absorbed.

There is some debate going on in the medical community as to what is the safe upper limit or maximum daily intake of vit-D. The old limit was 2,000 IU, but some researchers believe

Yes, it is ok to take these together.

Is it safe to take a multivitamin and a Vitamin D tablet, if you have a slight Vitamin D deficiency?

Yep. The overdose for vitamin D is like 100 times greater than in the pills for an adult

overdose around 100,000 IU.
Normal pill dose 1,000 IU

Vitamin D is a common deficiency, because so many of us never get out in the sun anymore, but it is sort of hard to get it balanced just right.

You might want to monitor it with a blood test after you have been on the D for awhile. --
