Diabetes op may also help infertile women have baby

A SIMPLE new procedure could help infertile women to become pregnant, scientists believe. The Revita technique – pioneered at King’s College Hospital, London – has already shown promising results in treating people with Type 2 diabetes.

Men and women follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle and can undergo important and sometime startling hormonal changes. Though results vary with stage of life—young adults, middle-aged, older—there are a variety of hormonal changes that women and men typically experience, some in concert, others independently. Such hormonal shifts can be powerful and part of the health-restoring menu of changes that develop with this lifestyle. They can even improve a relationship in a number of ways, both physically and emotionally, especially if we weave in some of the newer Wheat Belly/Undoctored concepts and practices such as oxy...

ConclusionPregnant women with pre‐gestational diabetes on metformin are at a higher risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes than the general population. This appears to be due to the underlying diabetes since women on metformin for other indications do not present meaningfully increased risks.

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...

In this study, we first explored whether high insulin levels directly affected ovarian functioning during embryo implantation. Mice in the insulin-treated group were given a subcutaneous injection of human recombinant insulin. After insulin treatment, serum levels of E2 (estrogen), PROG (progesterone), LH (luteinizing hormone), and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) were obviously lower, and there was a significant decrement of ovarian GDF9 (growth differentiation factor 9) mRNA. H&E (hematoxylin and eosin) staining showed a greater number of immature follicles and less luteinization in the insulin group. Further autophagy...

DiscussionPolycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 6-8% of reproductive-age women making it the most common endocrinopathy in this age group. There is no consensus on the specific diagnostic criteria for PCOS in adolescents as many of the characteristics overlap with normal adolescent physiology. However, patients should have evidence of hyperandrogenism, oligo- or amenorrhea, and potentially polycystic ovaries. PCOS has a genetic component although a specific gene has not been identified. Incidence of PCOS is 20-40% for a woman with a family history. Hyperandrogenism Androgen levels change during puberty therefore actual ...

Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common endocrinopathy among reproductive-aged women in the United States, affecting approximately 7% of female patients. Although the pathophysiology of the syndrome is complex and there is no single defect from which it is known to result, it is hypothesized that insulin resistance is a key factor. Metabolic syndrome is twice as common in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome compared with the general population, and patients with polycystic ovary syndrome are four times more likely than the general population to develop type 2 diabetes mellitus. Patient presentati...

Brianna shared her story with me a couple of years ago after she had lost 49 pounds living the Wheat Belly lifestyle: Unfortunately, after learning that she was pregnant, she went off track and gained a lot of weight. She recently got back on the Wheat Belly wagon after delivering her baby and again shared her experience, with her 4 month results here: “FOUR MONTHS no wheat, size 22 to 16 and still going. I seriously can’t believe it. “I have PCOS [polycystic ovarian syndrome]. After 7 years of trying to conceive, six months following Wheat Belly last time I conceived twice, with second one resulting i...

This report highlights the efficacy of metformin in lean PCOS with type 1 diabetes. Insulin therapy is essential for type 1 diabetes but hyperinsulinemia potentially exacerbates PCOS through hyperandrogenism. Metformin is therefore recommended for treatment of lean PCOS with type 1 diabetes as well as common obese PCOS with type 2 diabetes. PMID: 26765270 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article outlines the pathophysiology of PCOS and its diagnostic pathways and also summarises the safety of medical management for the metabolic complications in pregnant women. It is important for healthcare professionals to be aware of the latest guidance for treatment of PCOS in order to provide high-standard evidencebased care. PMID: 26217407 [PubMed]
