  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    The causes can be broadly classified as fetal, maternal and placental factors.
    Fetal causes include chromosomal abnormalities, multiple pregnancies, fetal structural anomalies and fetal infections.
    Maternal factors include nutritional deficiencies, especially of vitamin C and E. Maternal infections, especially chronic infections like tuberculosis and malaria can cause fetal growth restriction (FGR).

    Medical problems in the mother like hypertension, anemia, diabetes mellitus, chronic lung diseases and heart disease can cause FGR.
    Maternal dietary supplementation through balanced caloric intake rather than specific protein supplementation has a variable effect on fetal growth. The effect is small, though fetal weights have been shown to increase by 100–300 g .
    l-Arginine improves Uteroplacental blood flow to overcome placental ischemia by increasing Nitric oxide. This results in vasodilation of uterine arteries.
    The use of low-dose aspirin for the prevention and treatment of pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction has been studied extensively.
    So be in touch with your doctor for regular follow up . she may start these medications depending upon the reason and cause of your problem.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
