By now, most people have been to a holiday party or two. Lots of food, lots of eggnog and other carb laden alcoholic beverages, and lots of grazing all day long on all the boxes of candy friends and business acquaintances sent to us. It's easy to gain the five pounds most people gain during the holidays, and in the process, raise your blood sugar or glucose levels too high. That's your body letting you know you have prediabetes (higher than normal but still below diabetes levels) or diabetes, and unless you take action soon, your body won't like it. Diabetes silently sneaks up on you and if untreated, slowly weakens your ...

When performed by a trained sonographer, fetal echocardiography can be instrumental in identifying cardiac pathology and abnormal cardiac physiology before a baby is born. Even though the diagnostic accuracy of a fetal echocardiogram can be limited by maternal body habitus, gestational age, and fetal position, sequential exams allow for detailed analysis of the cardiac structures. Early identification and diagnosis of intrauterine cardiac anomalies and subsequent pregnancy management and delivery planning are essential to providing the best possible outcome for fetuses born with heart defects. In this case study, we descri...
