Women with congenital heart disease are at increased risk of miscarriage in pregnancy. Lifelong medical care is required for women born with congenital heart disease. The American Heart Association (AHA) published guidelines on how to prevent miscarriage in pregnant women with complex congenital heart disease.
Previous guidelines suggested that the women with congenital heart disease should not get pregnant due to the lifelong risk associated with the disease. Now, these women can undergo successful pregnancy due to advancements in the healthcare. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends pre-pregnancy counseling and a prepare delivery plan for women with congenital heart disease. Special care and monitoring are required as the effects of pregnancy last for six weeks to six months. The guidelines were published online in Circulation on Jan 12, 2017.
Previous studies show type 2 diabetes disease can be cured with bariatric (weight loss) surgery. As per The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommendations, bariatric (weight loss) surgery can be considered to an individual whose body mass index (BMI) is between 30-34.9. A study done by researchers from University of Milan, Italy shows bariatric (weight loss) surgery to type 2 diabetes individuals may reduce the risk of the development of diabetic retinopathy compared with those type 2 diabetes patients have not undergone surgery.
Researchers are not sure of the diabetic retinopathy risk reduction benefits with bariatric (weight loss) surgery as previous uncontrolled studies resulted in conflicting results. They say further studies are required to conclude diabetic retinopathy effects with bariatric surgery. Author of the study is Dr. Antonio E Pontiroli, MD and the study findings were published online in the journal Obesity Reviews.
A Danish study done to compare the risk of hypoglycemia with different forms of synthetic insulin in patients with recurrent hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia patients shows fewer hypoglycemia episodes during nighttime with analog insulin compared with human insulin in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Study statistics show hypoglycemia episodes with human insulin is more than 40 percent compared to analog insulin which is 16 percent. Researchers monitored blood glucose or sugar levels in 72 patients for 2 nights during their sleep. Results show nighttime hypoglycemia episodes were
Genetic alterations will be done to analog insulin so that it will be absorbed better by the blood. The study findings were published online in the Diabetic Medicine.
A study done by researchers shows changes in body metabolism and increase in the risk of the development of type ii diabetes (T2D) with the consumption of a high-fat meal such as cheeseburger and fries or a pepperoni pizza. Researchers say the fit body may recover from eating a high-fat meal once but the regular eating of fatty food may cause permanent damage to body metabolism. Researchers studied the effects of eating a high-fat meal among 14 lean and healthy men aged between 20 to 40 years. Results with the consumption of palm oil are
Co-author of the study is Dr. Michael Roden, scientific director, German Diabetes Center in Dusseldorf and the study findings were published Jan 23, 2017, in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
