Plasma retinol value which is considered as marginal in children is?
A. 0.25 to 0.35 μmol/L
B. 0.35 to 0.7 μmol/L
C. 0.7 to 1.05 μmol/L
D. 1.05 to 1.45 μmol/L
Correct answer: C. 0.7 to 1.05 μmol/L
- The plasma retinol value of 0.7 to 1.05 μmol/L is considered to be marginal.
- Values more than 1.05 μmol/L are considered to be adequate for children.
- Values between 0.35 to 0.7 μmol/L are considered to be deficient.
- If the value is less than 0.35 μmol/L, it is considered to be very deficient.
