Conclusion

Until now the major trace element which was considered during pregnancy was iron and iron supplementation was quite systemic among clinical pratician. Our findings indicate that the proportion of pregnant women at risk of Zn deficiency is around 20 times more important than iron. Considering the role of zinc in the replication protein a particular attention to this trace element must be considered during pregnancy.
