Plasma chromium levels in small-for-gestational-age newborn infants

Turk J Pediatr. Jan-Mar 1993;35(1):37-40.


Plasma chromium (Cr) levels were determined in 24 preterms and 18 full-term newborn infants. There was no statistically significant differences in plasma Cr levels between the preterm and full-term infants. Plasma Cr levels were similar in small-for-gestational-age infants and in infants with hypoglycemia compared with healthy infants.
