The LOUNA Health Values During Pregnancy package has been carefully designed to measure prenatal well-being. It is suitable for anyone planning a pregnancy and for pregnant women. Use the test package to examine your state of health and make sure there are the best possible conditions for fetal growth and development. Use the package to measure the values of vitamins and trace elements that are essential for pregnancy, as well as the body's iron levels, fat levels, and possible inflammation.
The Health Values During Pregnancy package includes a complete blood count, and the measurement of your ferritin, CRP, blood sugar, thyroid function, vitamins D and B12, and folate levels. Folate levels are particularly important for pregnant women. Folate is important for the fetus, because it affects the development of neural pathways.
The test package helps you make the right choices for your body and your child’s welfare. If you are planning a pregnancy, LOUNA's selection also includes a laboratory package specially designed for this purpose. You can read more about the package here.
