Research Indicates The Rate Of High Blood Pressure During Pregnancy Increased Over Last 40 Years In the age-period-cohort analysis, the rate of chronic hypertension increased sharply with advancing age and period from 0.11% in 1970 to 1.52% in 2010 (rate ratio, 13.41; 95% CI, 13.22–13.61). While the absolute numbers are not that large, this represents
The interpretation of this data points to variation in cycles from month to month stating that fertility may vary from "cycle to cycle." My take on this would be to realize that our women today are subjected to enormous physiologic stress which is causing the changes in the cycle length. 27-29 days are normal and
An increase in cancer is obvious to those of us caring for patients. From the time I was a child and in high school (1970's) until now there has been a dramatic increase in cancer. This is true of statistics and just my general impression. I don't remember knowing of any cancer in any of
Estradiol May Have Protective Effect Against Cognitive Impairment In Women With Visceral Adipose Tissue, Research Suggests
More evidence that estrogen is protective to brain function and hopefully inching the needle toward more acceptance of normalization of estrogen for women. The headwinds and resistance still abound when it comes to estrogen use in women. Newer studies are showing that if estrogen is started early, when the decline starts that cognitive function may
Research Suggests Possible Link Between Processed Food Consumption In Pregnancy And Increased Risk Of Autism In Offspring
I know everyone gets tired of me blaming all health evils on carbohydrates, but it is the largest ingested toxin in our world by a magnitude of 100x to the next largest offender. In roughly 2008 or so a good friend of mine, a pediatrician, a great one by the way who will remain nameless
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/18/magazine/fertility-weight-obesity-ivf.html This is certainly a very emotional and controversial subject. To read the coverage on this, you would think doctors are refusing care to patients because they don't like people who are overweight. This is far from the truth. A host of studies that look at IVF outcome based on BMI (body mass index
Hypothalamic dysfunction in women is an epidemic following what I call the “exercise revolution” that began about 1980 and the dramatic change in athletics for women in U.S. schools about that time. Women now feel ashamed if they don’t engage in some high-level sport, where just a few years prior, they were not expected to
Prepregnancy BMI May Be More Important Risk Factor For Adverse Maternal-Fetal Outcomes Than Weight Gain During Pregnancy, Meta-Analysis Suggests.
Prepregnancy BMI May Be More Important Risk Factor For Adverse Maternal-Fetal Outcomes Than Weight Gain During Pregnancy, Meta-Analysis Suggests. This study clearly supports our belief that BMI correlates with metabolic dysfunction severity. Pre-pregnancy weight is the measure of this parameter. If this can be significantly changed, we see a much better outcome beginning with fertility
First of all I would not change your entire metabolism based on one film. If this film was sponsored by the vegan/vegetarian group, you can rest assured that their information and logic is biased and flawed. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that cancer is caused by insulin elevation and carbohydrates. Vegan diets are
Excess Pregnancy Weight Gain May Increase Delivery Complications Risk, Study Suggests. This study looks at 20lb weight gain OVER the recommended guidelines for pregnancy and found those who did had significantly increased incidence of heart failure, severe high blood pressure among other abnormalities in pregnancy. There is no doubt that this would be the case.
