This report, a condensation of a publication titled "Laboratory Indices of Nutritional Status in Pregnancy," summarizes the effects of normal gestation on certain laboratory indices of nutritional and metabolic status in an effort to provide the clinician with normative data applicable to healthy pregnant women. The report is divided into six sections: physiologic adjustments in general, hematologic indices, electrolytes, carbohydrates and lipid metabolism, nitrogenous indices, vitamin indices, and trace elements. Numerous tables illustrate the use of indices in determining the status of pregnancy. (CM)
