I hadn't heard about the recommendation for 5mg of folic acid for BMI>35, and I'm having trouble finding it in the literature. That is a majority of my patients. Anyone know the source for that tidbit?

Thank you!

Hi Kaitlyn! Here's where we first read it: https://www.aafp.org/afp/2013/1015/p499.html, and it looks like the original reference is:
Wilson RD, Davies G, Désilets V, et al.; Genetics Committee and Executive and Council of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. The use of folic acid for the prevention of neural tube defects and other congenital anomalies. J Obstet Gynaecol Can. 2003;25(11):959–973.
