  • Energy and Weight Gain in Pregnancy 2012
  • Slide 2
  • Energy Requirements in Pregnancy Increased energy costs in pregnancy: increased maternal metabolic rate fetal tissues increase in maternal tissues
  • Slide 3
  • DRI for Energy in Pregnancy - 2002
  • Slide 4
  • Estimated Energy Requirement Average dietary energy intake that is predicted to maintain energy balance in a healthy adult of a defined age, gender, weight, height, level of physical activity consistent with good health. In children, pregnant and lactating women the EER is taken to include the needs associated with deposition of tissues or secretion of milk
  • Slide 5
  • Slide 6
  • BEE: Basal Energy Expenditure BEE = energy consumed while at rest and fasting In pregnancy BEE increases due to metabolic contribution of uterus and fetus and increased work of heart and lungs. Variable for individuals

  • T1 and T2 ~ 180 kcal per day

  • Slide 12
  • Longitudinal Data from DLW Database Median TEE (total energy expenditure) change from non-pregnant was 8 kcal/gestational week. TEE changes little in first trimester.
  • Slide 13
  • Slide 14
  • Slide 15
  • Variations in Energy Requirements Body size - especially lbm Activity: most women decrease activity in last months of pregnancy if they can increased energy cost of moving heavier body BMR rises in well nourished women (27%) rises less or not at all in women who are not well nourished -Diet Induced Thermogenesis?
  • Slide 16
  • Evidence of energy sparing in Gambian women during pregnancy: a longitudinal study using whole-body calorimetry (AJCN, 1993) N=58, initially recruited, ages 18-40 25 became pregnant 21 participated in study protocols 9 completed BMR and 24 hour energy expenditure 12 completed BMR Adjusted for seasonality, weight loss expected during wet season
  • Slide 17
  • Poppitt et al., cont. Mean maternal prepregnancy weight was 52 kg Mean prepregnancy BMI was 21.2 + 2 Mean birthweight was 3.0 + 0.1 Mean gestational length was 39.4 Mean weight gain was 6.8 kg Mean fat gain was 2.0 kg at 36 weeks
  • Slide 18
  • Poppitt et al., cont. BMR fell in early pregnancy Values per kg lbm remained below baseline for duration of pregnancy Individual variation was high
  • Slide 19
  • Slide 20
  • Poppitt et al., cont. Energy sparing mechanisms may act via a suppression of metabolism in women on habitually low intakes. This maintains positive balance in the mother and protects the fetus from growth retardation

  • Longitudinal assessment of energy balance in well-nourished, pregnant women (Koop-Hoolihan et al, AJCN, 1999) N=16, SF area 10 became pregnant BMI range was 19-26 Mean weight gain at 36 weeks was 11.6 + 4 kg Mean birth weight was 3.6 kg
  • Slide 24
  • Koop-Hoolihan, cont Protocol: 5 times before pregnancy, 3 times during, once 4-6 weeks postpartum RMR (resting metabolic rate/metabolic cart) DIT (diet induced thermogenesis/metabolic cart) TEE (total energy expenditure/doubly labeled water) AEE (activity energy expenditure/difference between TEE and RMR) EI (energy intake/3 day food records) Body composition - densitometry, tbw, bmc with absorptiometry
  • Slide 25
  • Koop-Hoolihan, cont Women with the largest cumulative increase in RMR deposited the least fat mass (this was the only prepregnant factor that predicted fat mass gain) In all indices there was large individual variation Average total energy cost of pregnancy was similar to work of Hytten and Leitch (1971) Food intake records indicated 9% increase in kcals with pregnancy, but highly variable

  • Determinants of Gestational Weight Gain
  • Slide 46
  • Determinants: Social & Policy Findings Health Services Evidence for influence is weak; advice missing, inconsistent, erroneous Communityneighborhood environments can influence GWG by providing access to healthy foods and opportunities for PA FamilyMarried women more likely to gain within guidelines; association between partner violence and insufficient GWG; family support associated with good GWG SESInteractive and confounding effects; food insecurity in obese women associated with high GWG
  • Slide 47
  • Determinants: Genetics Maternal: insufficient evidence Fetal: GWG associated with birthweight; preliminary conclusions about fetal genotype and birthweight: (a) there is a fetal genotype effect on weight at birth (about 30 percent of the adjusted variance) (b) both parents genes influence birth weight with a stronger effect for maternal genes (c) specific allelic variant
