Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR)

Preventing Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR)

Preventing intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) may not be possible even for healthy mothers. It is possible for women to reduce or eliminate or reduce risks associated with the condition. Cigarette smoking and poor dietary choices are known to directly relate to IUGR as well as contributing to other causes such as high blood pressure and heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease.

While healthful lifestyle choices make significant contributions to preventing IUGR, regular prenatal care and early detection help assure the best outcome.
