Difference Between Folamil Genio And Folamil Gold?
evening. I want to ask “my gynecologist is now entering 19 weeks. I checked with the doctor last month. I am taking folamil genio recommended 2 times a day. The doctor said if new folamil gold is 1 times a day. Today I want to replace folamil gold. but why I am hesitant to consume it. I share the color on the internet folamil gold for pregnancy 7 months and above. So what is the solution I do.
Hello Ms. Tri! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The two drugs that you mentioned are supplements intended for pregnant women. The difference between the two is that vitamin content in folamil genio is more complete, but folamil gold contains higher DHA. The DHA content in folamil genio is 40 mg, whereas in folamil gold 200 mg. Because of the higher DHA content, folamil gold is usually given to help optimal growth and development of the fetal brain and bone. In addition to more complete vitamins, folamil genio also contains iron which is important for pregnant women. If you only consume folamil gold, you still need to take iron supplements. Both of these drugs can be taken by pregnant women, regardless of the age of the womb. The usual dosage of these two drugs is 1 capsule per day, but the right dosage is according to the doctor's recommendations based on your age and body weight and your maternal condition. If your obstetrician recommends taking 2 times a day, then this is a better recommendation for you to follow. If you are still confused, you can ask your obstetrician what medical considerations make the doctor recommend giving 2 times a day. Usually, mothers with fetuses who have a high risk of developing nerve or brain disorders will be asked to consume more folic acid. The two drugs that you mentioned contain the same folic acid, 1 mg, so if you really need 2 capsules of folamil genio, you should also need 2 capsules of folamil gold. You should discuss it again with the obstetrician who usually treats you. The doctor will explain the consideration of providing additional supplements to the mother. In addition to supplements, it is important for mothers to always choose healthy foods, increase consumption of vegetables, fruits, and various sources of protein (milk, fish, eggs, chicken, etc.). Avoid raw or undercooked foods, such as fresh vegetables or satay. Mothers also need to avoid cigarettes and alcohol. If it is not forbidden by the doctor, you should also do regular physical activities, for example walking in the afternoon or swimming for 30 minutes per day.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
