Special populations: disaster care considerations in chronically ill, pregnant, and morbidly obese patients - Dempsey TM, Lapinsky SC, Melnychuk E, Lapinsky SE, Reed MJ, Niven AS.

Special populations, which include the morbidly obese and patients with chronic, complex medical conditions that require long-term health care services and infrastructure, are at increased risk for morbidity and mortality when these services are disrupted ...

Conclusions: Early targeted interventions should be taken to prevent women who were primiparous, and/or had a lower pre-pregnancy BMI and higher pre-pregnancy WC and GWG, from excessive PPWR.

ConclusionWomen with raised BMI changed eating patterns as pregnancy progressed, moving from main meal –dominant to snack-dominant patterns. Large meal–dominant meal patterns in later pregnancy were associated with higher glycaemic index and greater prevalence of macrosomia.

Several interventions have been implemented to prevent the development of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in obese pregnant women, including physical exercise programs, and administration of metformin, vitamin D and probiotics. The aim of this network meta ‐analysis was to compare the efficiency of these interventions and identify the optimal.

Publication date: Available online 13 November 2019Source: Clinica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Xin Zeng, Yuan-jie Xie, Ya-ting Liu, Shuang-lian Long, Zhong-cheng MoAbstractPolycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex and heterogeneous endocrine disease characterized by clinical or laboratorial hyperandrogenism, oligo-anovulation and metabolic abnormalities, including insulin resistance, excessive weight or obesity, type II diabetes, dyslipidemia and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The most significant clinical manifestation of PCOS is hyperandrogenism. Excess androgen profoundly affects granulosa cell function and...

This study evaluated the effects of the association of a low-protein diet during gestation and lactation with a post-weaning high-fat diet on the biochemical and ventilatory parameters of rats. Male Wistar rats from mothers who received a low-protein (9% of protein) or normoprotein diet during pregnancy and lactation received a high-fat (32% of total kilocalories from lipids) or a normal fat diet after weaning. Mass gain and somatic growth of the offspring were monitored. Also examined were biochemical chemical parameters and respiratory frequency, tidal volume (volume of air displaced in each normal respiratory cycle when...

(Society for Endocrinology) Impaired liver function during pregnancy may alter gut bacteria composition and increase the risk of obesity in children, according to results presented at The Society for Endocrinology Annual Conference. In a rodent of model of the most common liver disease in pregnancy, the composition of gut bacteria in offspring was altered and liver function impaired, particularly when they were fed a Western-style, high-fat diet.
