Dr. Lazarus encourages pregnant women to take proper care of their health during this particularly taxing period in their lives. Pregnancy is a drain on the body in any number of ways. Vitamin supplements are a good means of protecting themselves from a multitude of potential health issues.
One such important health issue is getting sufficient iodine in relation to thyroid. Regularly taking a vitamin supplement with iodine is an excellent choice, in his view.
Generally in the United States, although iodine levels have fallen in the last decade, there is still normally sufficient iodine for normal pregnancy to occur.
