The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between maternal serum Zn levels and birth weight of the offspring and correlation of these with cord blood Zn, IGF-1 and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3 (IGFBP3) levels. 22 term small-for-gestational-age (SGA) and 34 term appropriate-for-gestational -age (AGA) babies and their mothers have been evaluated. There was no significant difference between the IGF-1 and IGFBP-3 levels and birthweight of the babies of the mothers with and without Zn deficiency. A correlation was found between the birthweight, IGF-1 and IGFBP-3 levels, BMI of the mother and weight gain of the mother during pregnancy (p<0.01).
