JIMENEZ ACOSTA, Santa Magaly; RODRIGUEZ SUAREZ, Armando  y  DIAZ SANCHEZ, María Elena. Implementation of national references for the anthropometry assessment of pregnants in the nutritional surveillance in Cuba. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.2, pp.182-189. ISSN 0138-600X.

Introduction: the surveillance of the maternal nutritional status is conducted in Cuba from 1979, but never has been possible to have our own references for pregnants. Objectives: to compare the nutritional status of pregnants using the Cuban references and that of the Institute of Medicine of the United States of America (IOM) 1990. Methods: using as basement information the sentinel sites for the maternal nutritional surveillance authors assessed the cut points of the IOM 1990 and of the national references of the pregnant nutritional status obtaining the comparison between the body mass index (BMI) for capture, the weight gain during pregnancy according to the initial nutritional status and the pregnant age according to both references. Results: it was possible to verify the existence of a decrease in the low weight pregnants at onset of pregnancy with the use of Cuban standards, the ideal weight gain according to the initial nutritional status is relatively low using both standards, the Cuban tables diagnose more frequently the excess weight and the obesity than that of the IOM, the pregnant aged under 15 are who have a greater ratio of weight gain lower than the ideal one. The significance of the use of own references is demonstrated. Conclusions: the data on maternal nutritional status surveillance are better interpreted according to the Cuban tables because they are obtained from the same population.

Palabras clave : weight gain during pregnancy; pregnant nutritional status; pregnant excess weight.
