Ive spent the majority of my nutrition career helping pregnant women, like you, choose the best foods to grow a healthy baby. I understand your fears about doing things wrong, the anxiety that naturally comes with a pregnancy, and the pressure (not just physical) that comes with carrying this growing human being.. As a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and Certified Diabetes Educator who specializes in prenatal nutrition and gestational diabetes, Ive helped hundreds of women have healthy pregnancies.. Ive worked side-by-side with some of the top OBGYNs and perinatologists in the field, worked at the public policy level at the California Diabetes and Pregnancy Program, and spoken at major medical conferences addressing topics like prenatal nutrition, managing gestational diabetes with diet, safe exercise during pregnancy, postpartum nutrition and weight loss, and nutrition for breastfeeding.. Im also the author of Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the ...
Nutrition and weight management before and during pregnancy has a profound effect on the development of infants. This is a rather critical time for healthy fetal development as infants rely heavily on maternal stores and nutrient for optimal growth and health outcome later in life. Prenatal nutrition addresses nutrient recommendations before and during pregnancy. Prenatal nutrition has a strong influence on birth weight and further development of the infant.There was a study at the National Institution of Health were they found out that babies born from an obese mother, have a higher probability to fail tests of fine motor skills which is the movement of small muscles such as the hands and fingers. A common saying that a woman is eating for two while pregnant implies that a mother should consume twice as much during pregnancy. However, in reality this is not true. Although maternal consumption will directly affect both herself and the growing fetus, over eating excessively will compromise the ...

For the health of your baby, you want to maintain proper nutrition during pregnancy. Women who exercise and eat well have fewer complications than those who dont meet their bodys nutritional needs. Prenatal care is also essential for giving birth to a healthy baby. Here are a few things that you need to know about th
Yall arent going to believe this one. The midwife I apprenticed with, who is an EXCELLENT midwife and is also a clinical nutritionist, used to recommend 1000 mg. Vit C per day, times the month you were pregnant. Thats right at 9 mos. her clients were taking 9,000 mg. of Vit. C per day. She said she had researched it and had several reasons for this recommendation which I dont remember all of them now. A lot of what I remember had to do with building the strength of the blood vessel walls, increasing the elasticity of the skin (something to do with collagen I think), helping to prevent hemorrhage, assisting absorption of iron and we suspected it helped prevent Rh isoimmunization. She was really confident in this and recommended it no more than 2,000 mg. at a time, spaced out throughout the day. After the pregnancy was over the women would gradually decrease the amount - going down 1,000 mg. per day each week. She believed a healthy maintenance dose was 3,000 mg. per day, but I dont think ...

Can you think of any condition other than pregnancy that causes perfect strangers to think its acceptable to rub another adults belly? Our society has a nasty habit of attempting to assert personal beliefs on womens bodies. Note to the general public - if you are not part of the medical team and you were not part of the conception, your opinion probably isnt necessary.. There are too many old wives tales concerning pregnancy to list here; Ive heard everything from "my mom says I cant have pineapple or hot sauce" to "when youre pregnant you cannot digest pork and it rots in your stomach!" I just want to address some of the more common misconceptions.. · "You should not eat any seafood when youre pregnant." - On the contrary, seafood can be a healthy source of lean protein and iron and it is the only unfortified source of DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for fetal brain development.

Background: It has been long suspected that prenatal nutrition and environmental toxins play a role in promoting breast cancer. Genomic imprinting is an inherited form of parent-of-origin-specific epigenetic gene regulation that is dysregulated by poor prenatal nutrition and environmental toxins. Recent studies show that exposure to the environmental plastic bis-phenol A and vitamin D deficiencies promote loss of normal imprinting. African American (AA) women are known to have vitamin D deficiency at a significantly higher frequency than women of Northern European descent. Here we investigated a mechanism that may explain the higher rate of aggressive triple-negative breast cancers (TNBC) in AA women.. Methods and Results: KCNK9 encodes TASK3, a pH-regulated potassium channel membrane protein that is overexpressed in 40% of breast cancer. Our studies have identified a differentially methylated region (DMR) for KCNK9 and shown monoallelic expression of KCNK9 in breast tissue. Using patient ...

Salud pública Méx [online]. 2009, vol.51, n.4, pp.327-335. ISSN 0036-3634.. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this analysis was to test the impact of daily supplementation with multiple micronutrients (MM) during pregnancy on Zn, vitamin A and folate status compared to iron only (Fe). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was carried out during 1997-2000 in a semi-urban community in Morelos state, Mexico. Women were randomly assigned to MM (n= 249) or Fe (n= 258) and received supplements daily (6 d/wk) under supervision by the field team from recruitment (approximately 9 weeks pregnancy) until delivery. Blood samples were collected on a sub-sample of women at baseline, 32 weeks pregnancy and one month postpartum (1PP) and assessed for serum zinc, retinol and whole blood folate (baseline and 1PP only). A breast milk sample was extracted at 1PP and assessed for ...

Dear Dr Wilson,. We had our first visit with you today with my my son (one of my twin boys) and i just wanted to thank you for your time, kindness and approach. Thanfully we dont often go to the GP (almost never), but for the first time ever i feel like i can breathe when i think about a visit if needed. You articles are fantastic i read through many today, i wish i have known about them earlier. Since my first son was born 3 ago i have done and extensive amount of research on nutrition and established new ways of sourcing food, learned ancient food preparing and cooking methods to give my children the best possible start. I belive the way we and what we eat is effecting our heath greatly, thefore it is number one priority for me. On my second pregancy with my twins, i payed huge attention to prenatal nutrition along with establishing exclusive breastfeeding afterwords and very very careful weaning onto solids. What -in return- i got from the medical community in the last few years was eye ...
Havent read the paper, but this sounds like a high tech version of kinship-phenotype correlation. Identical twins are phenotypically more similar than regular siblings who are more similar than cousins who are more similar than randomly paired citizens who are more similar than people from different countries etc. But how does that prove heritability? Genetically similar people tend to grow up in similar environment so how does this advance the debate? Now perhaps if you could subtract environmental similarity from genetic similarity, then you could draw conclusions, but since the only environmental effects that appear to matter by maturity (for fluid IQ) are biological (head injuries, prenatal nutrition, alcohol etc), this sounds impossible to measure. But since biological environmental effects are so small within generations (arguabley HUGE between generations-see the Flynn Effect) failing to subtract for environment may work in practice despite being theoretically sloppy. ...
BACKGROUND: Micronutrient deficiencies are common among women in low-income and middle-income countries. Data from randomised trials suggest that maternal multiple micronutrient supplementation decreases the risk of low birthweight and potentially improves other infant health outcomes. However, heterogeneity across studies suggests influence from effect modifiers. We aimed to identify individual-level modifiers of the effect of multiple micronutrient supplements on stillbirth, birth outcomes, and infant mortality in low-income and middle-income countries.. METHODS: This two-stage meta-analysis of individual patient included data from 17 randomised controlled trials done in 14 low-income and middle-income countries, which compared multiple micronutrient supplements containing iron-folic acid versus iron-folic acid alone in 112 953 pregnant women. We generated study-specific estimates and pooled subgroup estimates using fixed-effects models and assessed heterogeneity between subgroups with the ...

Were studied 402 puerperal women, 225 between 1999-2001 (GI) and 177 between 2007-2008 (GII). The gestational XN was investigated during the immediate puerperium (GI) and during ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Branched-chain amino acid supplemented diet during maternal food restriction prevents developmental hypertension in adult rat offspring. AU - Fujii, T.. AU - Yura, S..

N2 - Maternal food restriction is known to cause developmental hypertension in offspring. We have previously shown that maternal high-protein diet can reverse fetal programming of hypertension and that branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) concentrations in maternal and fetal plasma were increased by maternal high-protein intake. Then, we hypothesized that isocaloric supplementation with BCAA to a maternal food restriction can reverse the adverse outcome. Pregnant rats were divided into four groups at 7.5 days postcoitum: normally nourished (NN) and 70% undernourished (UN) groups with and without BCAA supplementation (NN-standard ...

This study is a randomised double blind controlled cluster trial of the effectiveness of multiple micronutrient supplements given by teachers to schoolchildren on improving their growth, nutritional status and educational achievement. The primary outcome measures are: gains in weight and height, haemoglobin concentration, cognitive function and educational achievement. Secondary outcomes are other anthropometric measurements and a decrease in body arsenic deposits. One hundred schools in Meherpur District, Bangladesh will take part in this study. Participation will be on the basis of informed consent. All pupils will be dewormed twice a year using a single dose of 400 mg albendazole; this will promote the bioavailability of the micronutrient supplements. The schools will be randomly allocated into two groups. In one group of 50 schools all children will be given by their teachers a single tablet of multiple micronutrients on every other school day each week, so for a total of 3 days a week or ...
Background: Micronutrients play an important role in immune function. To our knowledge, there have been no comprehensive studies on the role of micronutrient supplementation in children with tuberculosis.. Objective: We assessed the effect of micronutrient supplementation in children treated with antituberculosis therapy (ATT).. Design: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that used a 2 x 2 factorial design was undertaken at 2 teaching hospitals in Delhi. Children with newly diagnosed intrathoracic tuberculosis were enrolled, and they received ATT together with daily supplementation for 6 mo with either zinc alone, micronutrients without zinc, micronutrients in combination with zinc, or a placebo. Main outcomes were weight gain and an improvement in a chest X-ray (CXR) lesion assessed at 6 mo of treatment.. Results: A total of 403 children were enrolled and randomly assigned. A microbiological diagnosis of tuberculosis was confirmed in 179 children (44.4%). The median (95% CI) ...

A case study of the Great Bengal Famine of 1943, which had a reported death toll of about 1.5 million. An explanation for the famine is analysed in terms of the most common approach used-food availability decline (FAD), and this is rejected for various reasons. Analyses are next made in terms of exchange entitlements and the causes of the sharp movements of these, and of the class basis of the destitution. The last part of the chapter discusses the role of theory in the failure of the official policy for tackling the famine.

CARTAS AL EDITOR. Micronutrient supplementation for pulmonary tuberculosis. To the editor: We read with interest the randomized double-blind study by Dr. Armijos RX et al.1 to assess the effect of vitamin A and zinc supplementation on outcomes for patients with tuberculosis. Though the sample was small, this interesting study showed that adjunctive zinc supplementation appeared to accelerate bacterial clearance in patients with drug-sensitive, sputum smear-positive and culture-positive pulmonary disease. The effect of vitamin A supplementation was less evident. The investigators stated that they measured BMI and recorded intakes of energy, zinc, vitamin A and other nutrients from food, supplements and other sources from month 1 to 4 and at month 6. They also measured blood levels of zinc, retinol and albumin at baseline and at months 2 and 6. While BMI was reported at baseline, it was not reported during the follow up months; we wonder whether BMI was similar throughout the study or whether ...
Pregnant women will be identified from the antenatal clinics of 4 governmental and 2 other health centres. A total of 1400 women meeting set criteria will be randomised into receiving one of the following interventions: 1) Iron and folic acid supplementation to the mother during pregnancy only (IFA group), 2). Multiple micronutrient supplementation to the mother during pregnancy and six months thereafter (MMN group), 3) Lipid-based nutrient supplements to the mother during pregnancy and six months thereafter and to the child from 6 to 18 months of age (LNS group).. The mothers will receive LNS or the multiple micronutrients at 2-weekly intervals at their homes during pregnancy and weekly during first six months of lactation. Children in the LNS group will receive LNS weekly, starting at 6 months. Mothers will be medically examined and tested for defined laboratory parameters at enrolment, at 36 gestation weeks, at birth or soon thereafter, and at 6 months after delivery. Child size will be ...
Obviously, sufficient folate is crucial to a successful pregnancy and a healthy infant. Since most prenatal vitamins include manufactured folic acid, most people, unaware of the research, feel their needs for this crucial vitamin are covered. Its important to encourage pregnant women to get lots of natural folate from veggies, beans and other food sources. Not only will this help protect their embryo from neural tube defects and future asthma, it will help protect women from future cancers. These natural foods also carry lots of other nutrients, all of which contribute to healthy infants and mothers. Childhood cancers are on the upswing, and many of them could also be avoided with better prenatal nutrition ...
