CONCLUSIONS: A minority of pregnant women met the recommended GWG. No difference was noted between normal and high-risk pregnancies. High-risk population tended to have a less healthy lifestyle. Counseling to follow a healthy, balanced diet should be recommended, regardless of pregnancy risk, with particular attention to women at high risk of extra weight gain.

This study explores the in-situ precipitation of scorodite (FeAsO4.2H2O) during the atmospheric enargite leaching in acid chloride media. The temperature, oxygen sparging rate and the different fractions of the catalyst and ferric ions were the effective parameters on the scorodite precipitation process. Crystalline scorodite was precipitated out of the leach solution in the absence of seed at temperatures above 80 °C where the ratio of both AF5 to concentrate and activated carbon (AC) to concentrate were 1:2 and 1:1, respectively. The minimal dosage of ferric ions to form the scorodite residue was 5 g/L....

Resumen La adherencia a controles prenatales constituye una herramienta fundamental para disminuir la mortalidad materna. Usualmente se piensa la adherencia a partir de las caracter ísticas de las mujeres asistidas o de las particularidades del sistema de salud y sus agentes. Aquí se la aborda como emergente del modo en que se articulan las racionalidades y mundos de vida de profesionales y mujeres asistidas. Se realizó un estudio de casos múltiple buscando a comprender la adherencia a controles prenatales de mujeres rurales. Se realizaron 47 entrevistas en el norte argentino a mujeres embarazad...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: American Journal of Kidney DiseasesAuthor(s): Maria L. Gonzalez Suarez, Andrea Kattah, Joseph P. Grande, Vesna GarovicAs the incidence of chronic kidney disease increases and women pursue pregnancy at more advanced ages, the management of kidney disease in pregnancy has become increasingly relevant to the practicing nephrologist. Women with kidney disorders face several challenges in pregnancy due to increased physiologic demands on the kidney and risk for disease progression, the potential teratogenicity of medications, and the increased risk for complications such ...
