Biochemical indices of osteomalacia in pregnant Asian immigrants in Britain. (1/5172)

Serum calcium, phosphate and alkaline phosphatase, and urinary calcium excretion were examined during the second trimester of uncomplicated normal pregnancy in Asian immigrants to Britain and in local Caucasians. The mean serum calcium was significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians, and the mean serum alkaline phosphatase was significantly higher in Asians. The geometric mean of the urinary calcium excretion was highly significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians. The variances of the serum calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase, and urine calcium excretion did not differ significantly in the two populations. This indicates that there is a shift in values of immigrant Asians as a group compared with Caucasians. A comparison with figures obtained on normal nonpregnant persons of both suggests that the shift is not an inherent feature of the Asian population.  (+info)

Home care of high risk pregnant women by advanced practice nurses: nurse time consumed. (2/5172)

This study examined the time spent by advanced practice nurses (APNs) in providing prenatal care to women with high risk pregnancies. The results indicate that the overall mean APN time spent in providing prenatal care was 51.3 hours per woman. The greatest amount of time was spent in the clinic and women with pregestational diabetes consumed the most APN time and required the most contacts. Historically, home care services have been measured by number of visits or contacts. This study assists home care nurses and administrators to consider additional measurements including time spent.  (+info)

Effect of vitamin A and beta carotene supplementation on women's health.(3/5172)


Double blind, cluster randomised trial of low dose supplementation with vitamin A or beta carotene on mortality related to pregnancy in Nepal. The NNIPS-2 Study Group. (4/5172)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact on mortality related to pregnancy of supplementing women of reproductive age each week with a recommended dietary allowance of vitamin A, either preformed or as beta carotene. DESIGN: Double blind, cluster randomised, placebo controlled field trial. SETTING: Rural southeast central plains of Nepal (Sarlahi district). SUBJECTS: 44 646 married women, of whom 20 119 became pregnant 22 189 times. INTERVENTION: 270 wards randomised to 3 groups of 90 each for women to receive weekly a single oral supplement of placebo, vitamin A (7000 micrograms retinol equivalents) or beta carotene (42 mg, or 7000 micrograms retinol equivalents) for over 31/2 years. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: All cause mortality in women during pregnancy up to 12 weeks post partum (pregnancy related mortality) and mortality during pregnancy to 6 weeks postpartum, excluding deaths apparently related to injury (maternal mortality). RESULTS: Mortality related to pregnancy in the placebo, vitamin A, and beta carotene groups was 704, 426, and 361 deaths per 100 000 pregnancies, yielding relative risks (95% confidence intervals) of 0. 60 (0.37 to 0.97) and 0.51 (0.30 to 0.86). This represented reductions of 40% (P<0.04) and 49% (P<0.01) among those who received vitamin A and beta carotene. Combined, vitamin A or beta carotene lowered mortality by 44% (0.56 (0.37 to 0.84), P<0.005) and reduced the maternal mortality ratio from 645 to 385 deaths per 100 000 live births, or by 40% (P<0.02). Differences in cause of death could not be reliably distinguished between supplemented and placebo groups. CONCLUSION: Supplementation of women with either vitamin A or beta carotene at recommended dietary amounts during childbearing years can lower mortality related to pregnancy in rural, undernourished populations of south Asia.  (+info)

Effects of twinning on gestation length, retained placenta, and dystocia. (5/5172)

Constraints to maximal productivity from twinning in beef cattle include increased incidence of dystocia and retained placenta, longer postpartum interval, and lower conception rate. Incidence and cause(s) of the shorter gestation length and of the increased retained placenta and dystocia associated with twinning were evaluated for 3,370 single and 1,014 twin births produced in a population of cattle selected for natural twin births. Gestation length was shorter for twin than for single pregnancies (275.6 vs. 281.3 d, P<.01) and likely contributed to the higher incidence of retained placenta associated with twin births (27.9 vs. 1.9%; P<.01). Incidence of retained placenta was also higher in the spring (March-April) than in the fall (August-September) calving season (18.3 vs. 11.4%; P<.01). The higher incidence of dystocia with twins than with singles (46.9 vs. 20.6%, P<.01) was primarily due to abnormal presentation (37.0 vs. 4.5%, respectively) of one or both twin calves at parturition. First- (40.5%) and second- (22.7%) parity dams with a single birth had more (P<.01) dystocia than older dams (13.4%), whereas dystocia was not affected (P>.10) by parity with twin births. Because of the shorter gestation length and the increased incidence of retained placenta and(or) dystocia, achievement of increased productivity with twinning in cattle necessitates intensive management of twin-producing dams and their calves during the calving season. Management of the increased dystocia can be facilitated by preparturient diagnosis of twin pregnancies, enabling timely administration of obstetrical assistance to facilitate delivery of twin calves and to increase their neonatal survival.  (+info)

Liver disease in pregnancy. (6/5172)

Acute viral hepatitis is the most common cause of jaundice in pregnancy. The course of acute hepatitis is unaffected by pregnancy, except in patients with hepatitis E and disseminated herpes simplex infections, in which maternal and fetal mortality rates are significantly increased. Chronic hepatitis B or C infections may be transmitted to neonates; however, hepatitis B virus transmission is effectively prevented with perinatal hepatitis B vaccination and prophylaxis with hepatitis B immune globulin. Cholelithiasis occurs in 6 percent of pregnancies; complications can safely be treated with surgery. Women with chronic liver disease or cirrhosis exhibit a higher risk of fetal loss during pregnancy. Preeclampsia is associated with HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count) syndrome, acute fatty liver of pregnancy, and hepatic infarction and rupture. These rare diseases result in increased maternal and fetal mortality. Treatment involves prompt delivery, whereupon the liver disease quickly reverses. Therapy with penicillamine, trientine, prednisone or azathioprine can be safely continued during pregnancy.  (+info)

Time-dependent and tissue-specific effects of circulating glucose on fetal ovine glucose transporters. (7/5172)

To determine the cellular adaptations to fetal hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, we examined the time-dependent effects on basal (GLUT-1 and GLUT-3) and insulin-responsive (GLUT-4) glucose transporter proteins by quantitative Western blot analysis in fetal ovine insulin-insensitive (brain and liver) and insulin-sensitive (myocardium, skeletal muscle, and adipose) tissues. Maternal glucose infusions causing fetal hyperglycemia resulted in a transient 30% increase in brain GLUT-1 but not GLUT-3 levels and a decline in liver and adipose GLUT-1 and myocardial and skeletal muscle GLUT-1 and GLUT-4 levels compared with gestational age-matched controls. Maternal insulin infusions leading to fetal hypoglycemia caused a decline in brain GLUT-3, an increase in brain GLUT-1, and a subsequent decline in liver GLUT-1, with no significant change in insulin-sensitive myocardium, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue GLUT-1 or GLUT-4 concentrations, compared with gestational age-matched sham controls. We conclude that fetal glucose transporters are subject to a time-dependent and tissue- and isoform-specific differential regulation in response to altered circulating glucose and/or insulin concentrations. These cellular adaptations in GLUT-1 (and GLUT-3) are geared toward protecting the conceptus from perturbations in substrate availability, and the adaptations in GLUT-4 are geared toward development of fetal insulin resistance.  (+info)

Desmoid tumour. The risk of recurrent or new disease with subsequent pregnancy: a case report. (8/5172)

Desmoid tumours are rare, benign tumours arising from fibrous tissue in muscle fascia or aponeurosis. They are most common in women of child-bearing age and most often appear during or after pregnancy in this age group. The recommended treatment is wide surgical excision, if possible, but unresectable tumours may be treated with radiotherapy, anticancer drugs, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents or antiestrogenic compounds. The recurrence rate is high and seems to be related to the achievement of resection margins free of tumour. The literature is not specific about how to counsel women who have had a desmoid tumour and subsequently wish to have a child. Patients should be advised that these tumours may be estrogen sensitive but subsequent pregnancy is not necessarily a risk factor for recurrence or development of new disease.  (+info)

Overweight and obesity pose a big challenge to pregnancy as they are associated with adverse maternal and perinatal outcome. Evidence of lifestyle intervention resulting in improved pregnancy outcome is conflicting. Hence the objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of antenatal dietary, activity, behaviour or lifestyle interventions in overweight and obese pregnant women to improve maternal and perinatal outcomes. A systematic review and meta-analyses of randomised and non-randomised clinical trials following prior registration (CRD420111122 ) and PRISMA guidelines was employed. A search of the Cochrane Library, EMBASE, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Maternity and Infant care and eight other databases for studies published prior to January 2012 was undertaken. Electronic literature searches, study selection, methodology and quality appraisal were performed independently by two authors. Methodological quality of
Myo-Inositol is classified as a member of the vitamin B complex. It is a constituent of living cells and is widespread in many food. It is involved in a number of biological processes, including insulin signal transduction, resulting in modulating insulin sensitivity. This is a prospective, randomized, double center, placebo-controlled study. Two hundred and twenty obese pregnant women will be included in the trial and, after an informed consent, will assume randomly 2 g of myo-inositol twice a day or placebo from 12-13th weeks gestation until delivery. Then,they will perform an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) at 24-28th weeks gestation. Records about delivery (gestational age, neonatal weight...) will be registered ...

A woman who is over the age of 35 is considered to be of advanced maternal age. This age bracket puts you at a higher risk of pregnancy complications, labor issues, and birth defects. Youre probably aware that bearing children when youre younger may be healthier for you as the mother and for your children as well. Of course, having your children when youre young may be medically preferable, but not everyone has the ability to plan their family at that age. If youre starting your family when youre somewhat older, youre certainly not alone, and if you listen to your obstetrician, you should be just fine. Its a good idea to have a reputable OBGYN on hand because youll want to visit regularly for prenatal checkups during your pregnancy. If you would like to find out how you can avoid any kind of complications, you can also visit your doctor before getting pregnant. ...

We performed a causal mediation analysis to quantify the mediated effects of autoimmune conditions on adverse pregnancy outcomes.. Methods: We queried a retrospective California birth cohort created from linked birth certificates and hospital discharge summaries. From 2,963,888 births, we identified women with rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease. Pregnancy complications included preeclampsia/hypertension, gestational diabetes and infection in pregnancy. Adverse pregnancy outcomes were preterm birth, cesarean delivery and small for gestational age. We performed a causal mediation analysis to estimate the total effects of each autoimmune condition and adverse pregnancy outcome, and the indirect effects of each pregnancy complication.. Results: ...
Context: Women who have diabetes mellitus during pregnancy are at higher risk of adverse outcomes. Excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) is also emerging as a risk factor for maternofetal complications, and in 2009, the Institute of Medicine published recommendations for appropriate GWG. It is unclear whether excessive GWG confers additional risk to women with diabetes in pregnancy and whether Institute of Medicine recommendations are applicable to this population. Objective: The objective of this study was to examine whether excessive GWG in pregnancies complicated by diabetes mellitus is associated with higher adverse obstetric outcomes. Design: This was an observational study. Setting: The study was conducted at five antenatal centers along the Irish Atlantic seaboard. Participants: 802 women with diabetes in pregnancy participated in the study. Main Outcome Measure: Maternal outcomes examined included preeclampsia, gestational hypertension, and cesarean delivery. Fetal outcomes included ...
Excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) poses negative impact on mothers and their children. It is important to understand the modifiable lifestyle factors associated with excessive GWG during pregnancy to guide future public health practice. To investigate the association between physical activity during pregnancy and GWG of Chinese urban pregnant women. A pregnant women cohort was established between 2005 and 2007 in Changzhou, China. Physical activity levels of pregnant women were assessed using pedometer in the 2nd and 3rd trimester, respectively. According to step counts, pregnant women were categorized into 4 different physical activity groups: Sedentary, Low Active, Somewhat Active and Active. The pregnant women were followed for eligibility and data collection from the 2nd trimester to delivery. Multiple linear regression and multiple binary logistic model were applied to determine the association between physical activity and GWG. Physical activity levels and GWG of 862 pregnant women were
Excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) is a potential risk factor for hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP). We systematically reviewed three electronic databases for relevant articles published in English: PubMed, EMBASE and Web of Science. The Newcastle-Ottawa Scale was used to assess study quality. Random-effects meta-analyses were performed to supply a pooled estimation of the OR comparing the risk of HDP among healthy pregnant women with and without excessive GWG. The pooled estimation for the association between excessive GWG and the risk of HDPs yielded an odds ratio (OR) of 1.79 (95% CI: 1.61-1.99). A subgroup analysis showed that women who had excessive GWG were more likely to have an HDP (OR 1.82; 95% CI 1.53-2.17), preeclampsia (OR 1.92; 95% CI 1.36-2.72), or gestational hypertension (OR 1.67; 95% CI 1.43-1.95). The pooled estimation for the association between excessive GWG and the risk of HDPs among pregestational normal weight women yielded an OR of 1.57 (95% CI 1.26-1.96). A subgroup
Pregnant women in Japan express various reasons for limiting gestational weight gain (GWG). We aimed to identify and characterise groups where the women share common reasons to limit GWG and to examine how these groups are associated with inappropriate GWG and abnormal foetal size. We prospectively studied information from the Japan Environment and Childrens Study (JECS) on 92,539 women who gave birth to live singletons from 2011 through 2014. Pregnant women were recruited during early pregnancy. Their reasons for limiting GWG and other information were collected through self-reported questionnaires and medical records. We applied latent class analysis to group the women based on their reported reasons. We used multinomial logistic regression to compare the risks of inappropriate (inadequate and excessive) GWG and abnormal foetal size (determined by new-born weight for gestational age) between the identified groups. We identified three groups: Group 1 (76.7%), concerned about delivery and new-born
MONDAY, July 15, 2019 (American Heart Association News) -- A new study confirms that when it comes to assessing heart health, an important question a doctor can ask an African American woman is, Did you have complications during a pregnancy?. The study, published Monday in the American Heart Associations journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging, analyzed data collected on 439 African American women who had a coronary CT angiogram -- a scan that takes images of the arteries that supply blood to the heart -- and reported a previous pregnancy complication. These women were compared to 445 African American women with similar characteristics, such as age, weight and smoking history, who also had an angiogram but did not report a problem during pregnancy.. The research team looked at three pregnancy complications: preterm delivery (giving birth before the due date), preeclampsia (high blood pressure) and gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy).

Stress Relief During Pregnancy. If you truly want to ensure a great pregnancy, you should work on keeping a healthy and positive physical, mental and spiritual state. There is substantial evidence which suggests that a mothers physical and mental wellness during pregnancy can affect not only the outcome of their pregnancy but the well being of their child later in life. You relationship with your baby begins at the moment of conception.. There are many things aside from physical factors that can impact your pregnancy. Stress is one of the more common problems many pregnant mothers face at some point during their pregnancy. While stress in and of itself isnt always bad, prolonged stress can be damaging to a pregnancy. Most people associate stress that is harmful during pregnancy with physical labor. However, emotional stress may be just as damaging. Stress actually causes certain hormones in the body to be produced, and some scientists have suggested that these hormones can promote miscarriage ...
It has been known for a long time that smoking during pregnancy can cause a number of problems. Researchers have found that it can increase the chance of a miscarriage, pregnancy complications, premature deliveries, and even result in a low birth weight for the baby. Now, increasing the risk of ADHD can be added to that list.. The authors of the study looked at data from 84,803 children born in Denmark between the years 1996 and 2002. The mothers of the children were all interviewed about their habits during pregnancy.. When the children were 7-years-old, the mothers were asked to fill out a questionnaire on their kids behaviors, health, and development. Some of the questions asked about ADHD.. After siphoning through all of the data, the researchers discovered that mothers who smoke during pregnancy are 1.6 times more likely to have a child with ADHD. If the father smokes as well, then it is 1.8 times more likely.. The study also found a slightly higher risk of ADHD if mothers used nicotine ...

Too much or too little amniotic fluid in the membranes surrounding the fetus may indicate a problem with the pregnancy. Too much fluid can put excessive pressure on the mothers uterus, leading to preterm labor, or can cause pressure on the mothers diaphragm, leading to breathing difficulties. Fluids tend to build up in cases of uncontrolled diabetes, multiple pregnancy, incompatible blood types, or birth defects. Too little fluid may indicate birth defects, growth retardation, or stillbirth ... articles & information about Bleeding During Pregnancy for mothers, expecting mothers, and soon to be expecting mothers. What is Bleeding During Pregnancy? Bleeding from the vagina and spotting are symptoms that can occur during pregnancy. Vaginal bleeding can look just like a normal menstrual period with bright, fresh blood or large amounts of old blood. Spotting is a smaller amount of bleeding and may be mixed with other fluids and appear light and sporadic. Its crucial that you know the difference between spotting and bleeding when you become pregnant. Vaginal bleeding and spotting during pregnancy can be a sign of a serious health condition and needs to be brought to the doctors attention immediately for diagnosis. Bleeding or spotting may increase the risks of miscarriage or premature birth. Vaginal bleeding in pregnancy is far more common during the first trimester of pregnancy than many women believe. However, bleeding in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy are of far

Discussion. Even with comprehensive research on and clinical presentations and symptoms of COVID-19 pneumonia cases and treatment surveillance, findings on the disease in pregnant women remain extremely scarce. It is not established if the disease manifestations of pregnant women infected with coronavirus-2 vary from those of non-pregnant, if pregnancy and delivery exacerbate the symptoms, and whether antiviral drugs are required (Liu et al., 2020a). In addition, the scarcity of first and second trimester information about the disease may not establish if the infection will cause more serious perinatal complications (Poon et al., 2020).. This review detected 25 studies concentrating on COVID-19 viral infection throughout pregnancy. The total number of cases involved was 410 COVID-19 infected pregnant women.. The most frequent features of COVID-19 pregnant patients in the articles investigated have been shown to be fever and cough, followed by fatigue, dyspnea, myalgia, headache, sore throat, ...
Ivanhoe Newswire) -- New research may tell a woman whether she is at risk for a life-threatening condition early in her pregnancy.. Preeclampsia is a leading cause of maternal death and is characterized by high blood pressure and high levels of protein in the urine. It is thought to begin in early pregnancy, but symptoms typically do not surface until the second half of pregnancy.. Everything we know about this condition suggests women do not become sick and present with preeclampsia until late in the pregnancy, but the condition originates in early pregnancy, Louise C. Kenny, M.D., Ph.D., study lead author, from the University College Cork in Ireland, was quoted as saying. To develop effective treatment and prevention strategies -- our ultimate goal -- we need to be able to start treatment in early pregnancy. We need to be able to tell who is at risk and who is not.. An international team of scientists used sophisticated technology and data analysis to detect 14 simple metabolites to ...
Health problems that can develop during pregnancy are known as pregnancy risks or complications, and they can occur for many different reasons.

I am just over halfway through pregnancy #2. Since announcing my current pregnancy I have received a lot of great questions about having a healthy pregnancy. Readers, friends, and family have all been especially curious to know how I am dealing with weight gain this time around. Truthfully it has been a bit of a struggle. I will be sharing more about this pregnancy in a series I am putting together for the week after Mothers Day. That week I will share a reflection on my mind and body related to my weight gain (no anatomy). I am also lining up some professionals to do a little Q&A about nutrition and fitness before, during, and after pregnancy.

Why should a man not have one hundred, two hundred, a thousand children if he can do so with as many wives as will have him? And is it not said by Arman that each man is to become a tribe from his own loins? A woman will be limited usually to a child a year during her childbearing years. Arman says that a woman has approximately 36 childbearing years so theoretically a woman, even with single births could produce 36 children in her image. However, it is unlikely that many will do so. A dozen children per woman should not be a major problem for those who believe that we must multiply ...
