[Periconceptional folic acid prophylaxis and neural tube defects].
Ugeskr Laeger. 2015 Mar 09; 177(11)UL

Abstract

Neural tube defects (NTD) affect 60-70 pregnancies each year in Denmark. Folic acid (FA) intake can reduce the risk of NTD in pregnancy. The Danish Health and Medicines Authority recommends Danish women to take 0.4 mg of FA daily periconceptionally. Several studies have found low compliance regarding FA supplementation. In more than 70 countries around the world FA fortification of food products has been introduced and in USA and Canada this has lead to a decrease in NTD. FA fortification has not yet been introduced in Denmark. A revision of national Danish recommendations is needed.
