Causes of Premature Birth: In this video, we explained causes of premature birth - preterm labor symptoms - what causes preterm labor - what increases your risk. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQE7...) What is Premature Labor Premature labor is also called preterm labor. Its when your body starts getting ready for birth too early in your pregnancy. Labor is premature if it starts more than three weeks before your due date. Premature labor can lead to an early birth. But the good news is that doctors can do a lot to delay an early delivery. The longer your baby gets to grow inside you -- right up to your due date -- the less likely he or she is to have problems after birth. Causes of Premature Labor Lots of different things can increase your risk of premature labor. Some of them are: * Smoking * Being very overweight or underweight before pregnancy * Not getting good prenatal care * Drinking alcohol or using street drugs during pregnancy * Having health conditions, such as high blood pressure, preeclampsia, diabetes, blood clotting disorders, or infections * Being pregnant with a baby that has certain birth defects * Being pregnant with a baby from in vitro fertilization * Being pregnant with twins or other multiples * A family or personal history of premature labor * Getting pregnant too soon after having a baby Symptoms of Premature Labor * Backache, which usually will be in your lower back. This may be constant or come and go, but it wont ease even if you change positions or do something else for comfort. * Contractions every 10 minutes or more often To stop premature labor, you need to know the warning signs. Acting fast can make a big difference. Call your midwife or doctor right away if you have: * Cramping in your lower abdomen or menstrual-like cramps. These can feel like gas pains that may come with diarrhea. * Fluid leaking from your vagina * Flu-like symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Call your doctor even about mild cases. If you cant tolerate liquids for more than 8 hours, you must see your doctor.

Guidelines For The Detection And Management Of Hypoglycemia, Hyperglycemia, And Normoglycemia In Preterm And Term Neonates

John A. Widness, MD Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed Hypoglycemia Definition: Plasma glucose < 40 mg/dL in both term or preterm infants. Incidence: The definition of neonatal hypoglycemia has been based on statistical criteria.2 The incidence of this condition in term AGA infants is approximately 2%. Infants at Risk immediately following birth: IDMs, IGDMs (especially those whose mothers received oral hypoglycemic agents), LGA (>90%ile), SGA (IUGR <10%ile), post-asphyxiated, APGAR < 5 at five minutes, polycythemic, immune hemolytic disease, suspected sepsis, hypothermia (rectal temperature <35¾C), congenital anomalies, Beckwith-Wiedman syndrome, infants ≤ 36 wks gestation, infants ≥42 wks gestation, & those whose mothers received large amounts of i.v. glucose prior to delivery. Signs: Non-specific, including tremulousness, twitching, jitteriness, irritability, exaggerated Moro reflex, high pitched cry, seizures, apnea, limpness, poor feeding, cyanosis, temperature instability, and coma. Screening of Infants at Risk (see table at end of this section): Screen by plasma glucose measurements at 1, 2, 4, 8 and 24 hours of age if not receiving glucose containing i.v. flu Continue reading >>

    I'm a type 1 diabetic (over 40 years) and I discovered the primal lifestyle about a month ago. Did tons of research and decided to start a 30 day trial about a week ago to see if it would help get me off the blood sugar rollercoaster. In my research, I learned that there's a difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis, and that ketosis is actually healthy for most people, and that it improves the efficiency of the heart. I'm also a heart patient (cardiac bypass at age 34) so this intrigued me. Yesterday I restricted my carbs to 40 carbs, and was happy to notice ketones this morning when I woke up. When I went to bed, my blood sugar (BS) was about 130. I don't suffer from morning syndrome as some diabetics do, but after I noticed the ketones this morning, my blood sugar showed 210? I hadn't had any carbs since about 5PM yesterday though? Didn't think much of it at the time, but took some bolus insulin and went to work.
    At work, I checked it again, and now it was 238 after taking that insulin?! So I took more. Waited an hour and took it again, and now it was 240?! This is to close to the ketoacidosis threshold, so I freaked out and went home to monitor and eat (to bring myself out of ketosis).
    Got home, got my BS in control, after lots of BS checks, and lots more insulin. Now I'm back down to 110, but I did a double basal for 4 hours to handle the problem, on top of all the bolus I did.
    So my question, is why did that happen? I know that high BS will cause ketoacidosis if you're not careful, but why does ketosis cause high BS in a type 1 diabetic? Is it because my body is going into glyconeogenesis or gluconeogenesis or both? If ketosis causes/requires insulin production to deal with it, doesn't that defeat the purpose of going low carb? I thought one of the benefits of going low carb was to reduce insulin production? Is ketosis going to be healthy for me, even though I need to increase my basal dose to deal with it?
    I'm probably just getting confused with all this science I'm trying to cram into my brain all at once. Any help would be appreciated!

  2. Terry H

    I've also noticed earlier this week an inexplicable rise in BS in the late morning after a low-carb breakfast. This happened for about 3 days and I seem to be back to the usual now. I too wd. appreciate any info you care to share on this. Good luck.

  3. richthediabetic

    Thanks for your reply Nomad. I don't think it was a rebound high, because when I have a low blood sugar in my sleep, it usually wakes me up. (I'm lucky that way.) Remember that I bolused when I saw the 210, and then it went up, and I bolused again, and then it went up again. Until today, my basal and bolus worked well to bring down my glucose. The stress very well may have contributed to the problem, as I think I probably gave myself an anxiety attack at work. I kinda wanna keep going with this, to see what happens, except that I'm paranoid now. LOL! Knowing that it's worked normally for you helps me though. So far today I haven't gone over 50g carbs, but I'm out of ketosis now for some reason? I'm using Ketostix to monitor closely.
    I think you're right that we're a rare breed. I've been melting my brain trying to find answers to all my questions about paleo/primal and how it will affect me as a T1 Diabetic. Not much info about that specifically. Have you heard of a doctor named Bernstein? I discovered him last night while watching YouTube videos about this stuff. If you haven't I'd suggest Googling him. He's been T1 for over 60 years, and has been living paleo for most of his adult life. He looks fit as h***!

Common questions new parents ask: Newborn jaundice - Newborn care. Should I worry about my newborn getting jaundice? Most healthy babies develop a yellowish tinge to their skin in the first few days of life. If your baby does, it's probably nothing to worry about. Your doctor will monitor your baby during the first few days, especially if your baby's abdomen or legs look yellow. If your child is born full-term, she's sure to look like a healthy baby within a week. It may take a bit longer for her skin to take on a rosy glow if she is born prematurely. What causes jaundice in a baby? Most parents panic when they hear their baby has jaundice as they think it's the same ailment which affects adults. Jaundice in healthy infants, unlike in adults, is not due to problems in the liver. Jaundice develops in a healthy baby when her blood contains an excess of bilirubin - a chemical produced during the normal breakdown of old red blood cells. Newborns tend to have higher levels because they have extra oxygen-carrying red blood cells and their young livers can't metabolise the excess bilirubin. As the baby's bilirubin level rises above normal, the yellowness spreads downwards from the head to the neck, to the chest, and in severe cases, to the toes. Unless it's a serious case, your baby's jaundice will usually not cause any damage. In severe but rare cases of jaundice caused by liver disease or maternal blood incompatibility, newborns may suffer damage to the nervous system. How common is jaundice in newborns? 60 per cent of full-term infants develop jaundice on the second or third day after birth. It usually peaks by around the fifth or sixth day and then starts to decrease. In most babies it disappears after one week, though some babies may take about a fortnight to recover completely. 80 per cent of premature babies develop it between the fifth and seventh days after delivery. It usually disappears within a month of birth. Some studies suggest that mothers with gestational diabetes may have a higher risk of giving birth to babies with jaundice. Some studies also suggest that the male child is more likely to have jaundice than a female. Babies of mothers with blood group O have a higher chance of developing jaundice. How can jaundice in my baby be treated? If your baby looks jaundiced, your doctor may suggest tests to measure the bilirubin level in her blood. If your baby was born at term and is otherwise healthy, most doctors will not begin treatment, unless the bilirubin level is over 16 milligrams per decilitre of blood but it also depends on the age of the baby. Since the early 1970s, jaundice has been treated with phototherapy, a process in which infants are exposed to fluorescent-type lights which break down excess bilirubin. The baby usually lies naked under the lights for a day or two, with her eyes covered by a protective mask. If the level of bilirubin doesn't require phototherapy, you can still help your baby by taking her out into the sunlight in the early morning or late afternoon. Take care not to expose your baby for too long since her delicate skin is prone to sunburns. In the rare case of blood-type incompatibility where the bilirubin level can rise to dangerously high levels, your baby may need a blood transfusion. The Rh blood test you have when you are pregnant should alert you in advance about any incompatibility with your baby, and you will be given anti-D injections to avoid this problem. How can I tell if my baby has jaundice? Since jaundice is common in Indian babies, doctors usually watch out for tell-tale signs while you are still in the hospital. If you suspect your baby has jaundice once you get back home, you may want to try this quick home test recommended by experts. In a well-lit room, apply gentle pressure to your baby's chest. If there's a yellow tinge to the skin as the pressure is released, consult your doctor. This technique works best for fair-skinned babies; for others, check for yellowness in the whites of the eyes, nails, palms or gums. Remember, jaundice in babies is a temporary condition which usually clears up quickly without any intervention and has no long-term effects (except in severe cases). If you have any doubts, check with your doctor to make sure you're taking the right steps to getting your baby back in the pink. When should I worry about jaundice in my baby?

Hypoglycemia In The Newborn

What is hypoglycemia in the newborn? Hypoglycemia is a condition in which the amount of blood glucose (sugar) in the blood is lower than normal (under 50 mg/dL). Who is affected by hypoglycemia in the newborn? Babies who are more likely to develop hypoglycemia include: Babies born to diabetic mothers may develop hypoglycemia after delivery when the source of glucose (via the umbilical cord) is gone and the baby's insulin production metabolizes the existing glucose. Small for gestational age or growth-restricted babies may have too few glycogen stores. Premature babies, especially those with low birthweights, who often have limited glycogen stores (sugar stored in the liver) or an immature liver function. Babies born under significant stress. Babies who experience temperature instability (for instance, get cold) or when mothers were treated with certain drugs (for instance, terbutaline) Infants of diabetic mothers Babies who are large for their gestational age. This is associated with gestational diabetes, but also with forms of congenital hyperinsulinism What causes hypoglycemia in the newborn? Hypoglycemia may be caused by conditions that: Lower the amount of glucose in the bloods Continue reading >>

Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Salary - Amazing Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Salary http://averageneonatalnursepractition... A neonatal nurse career involves working with infants from the moment they are born. They help to care for healthy babies while they are still in the hospital, but their job becomes particularly important when a baby is born prematurely or with various medical issues and difficulties. Since infants in such situations require around the clock care, it is necessary to have skilled neonatal nurses there to provide care at every moment. They also advise parents on the correct methods to care for their newborn baby. And with a master's degree, these professionals can even become a neonatal nurse practitioner, providing more acute medical care when doctors are absent. After going to the next level of neonatal nursing with a master's degree in nursing science and after the passage of licensing exams to become a neonatal nursing practitioner, one's salary and job duties can greatly elevate. The average neonatal nurse practitioner salary is approximately $80,000 and may reach six figures after some experience, but the benefits of this job go far beyond the pay rate. Being able to provide a higher level of care to infants while helping educate the next generation of nurses is a challenge yet a great reward in itself. A career in this field can be tough. Because newborn babies cannot tell you what is wrong like adults and even young children can, this job requires a greater level of diagnostic skill. There are many cutting edge techniques that one must learn to care for newborns with special needs. And being able to communicate with parents who may sometimes be in great distress also requires a certain level of skill. Neonatal nurses may work in maternity wards, infant ICU wards, or in private settings working with mothers and infants who need special help and care. Some also work in hospice environments with infants who do not have long to live, which is particularly tough but necessary. And for these specialized practitioners, there are opportunities to work in OB/GYN offices, with a higher neonatal nurse practitioner salary and the responsibility of working directly with parents.

New Approaches To Management Of Neonatal Hypoglycemia

Abstract Despite being a very common problem after birth, consensus on how to manage low glucose concentrations in the first 48 h of life has been difficult to establish and remains a debated issue. One of the reasons for this is that few studies have provided the type of data needed to establish a definitive approach agreed upon by all. However, some recent publications have provided much needed primary data to inform this debate. These publications have focused on aspects of managing low blood glucose concentrations in the patients most at-risk for asymptomatic hypoglycemia—those born late-preterm, large for gestational age, small for gestational age, or growth restricted, and those born following a pregnancy complicated by diabetes mellitus. The goal of this review is to discuss specific aspects of this new research. First, we focus on promising new data testing the role of buccal dextrose gel in the management of asymptomatic neonatal hypoglycemia. Second, we highlight some of the clinical implications of a large, prospective study documenting the association of specific glycemic patterns with neurodevelopmental outcomes at two years of age.

    Unfortunately, I have to find a community of people in the similar situation. Our 4yr old (as of 7/21) lab Molly has had a terrible July; she went from perfectly healthy to not so much within days at the beginning of July. Here is a quick recap:
    7/2 - Diagnosed with Diabetes (initial GLU was 462), Ketoacetosis and elevated liver levels; she was in the vet for two days, released to us to begin a 30 units Humulin x2 and her GLU level was 351
    7/5 - Rechecked and Levels dropped to 80; said to not longer be ketoacetic; adjusted Humulin to 20 units x2
    7/9 - Rechecked and levels rose to 120; adjusted Humulin to 22 units
    7/12 - Rechecked and levels rose to 146
    7/19 - Rechecked and levels rose to 150; adjusted Humulin to 24 units
    Since 7/9, she has been feeling better and better with every visit but they want to get her levels down to 100-120 and keep it there
    Tonight she was doing great. She was excited and normal before dinner. We gave her dinner(1/3 Beneful, 2/3 broccoli, a little plain yogurt), her shot, and also her heart worm pill(her first since being diagnosed/treated with diabetes). About 20 minutes after dinner, she started acting funny.. She kind of stumbled, then had a little bit of a tremble. We panicked and thought she was "crashing". It wasn't dramatic, it was as mild as we could have imagined.
    The vet recommended just a little honey on the gums and to bring her to the vet in the AM. We did this and after about 20 minutes she was more normal, but maybe not 100%.
    Since her insulin has been in the 140-150 range for the past week or two, what are the odds that just out of the blue tonight she would crash? It seems like we did everything we were supposed to, and that the GLU has been pretty stable. Could the heartworm pill cause a crash, or heartworm mixed with food and insulin? We are just concerned about what else could be going on... We will know more in the AM

    Hi and welcome to you. You have a young lab yet, full of energy I'd guess.
    Sounds like your vet is basing insulin changes on one reading of the day. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Your pup really needs a full curve done where blood sugar is measured before food/insulin then every 2 hours until next shot time. This will tell you what her high and low points are for the day.
    She might be 150 at 6 hours post insulin, but if she has a mountain shaped curve where blood sugar rises then falls until next shot time, she could actually be 60 later in the day. If she has a bowl shaped curve, where blood sugar drops and slowly rises until next shot, that 150 could be her low point or it might be earlier in the day.
    A curve will give you a clearer picture. Have you considered home testing? With an active 4 y/o, I think it would be a huge benefit. Some dogs bg (blood glucose) can drop quite sharply with activity, walks, visitors, squirrels, etc. The stumble you had tonight was very likely low blood sugar and honey was a great correction. If it's any time other than right after dinner, following with a little food is a good idea to keep her bg up (the honey won't last long).
    I would ask the vet to do a full curve on her. That will also tell you how well her food/insulin are working together. Beneful doesn't have a good track record with diabetic dogs and balancing insulin in general.
    Hope that helps some.
    Again, welcome

    a recommendation for levels between 100 - 120 is to me extreme for a dog at least on this forum we do not see this type of control very often and many of us home test
    many dogs do perfectly fine with a level from 150 to 250 to give you some perspective
    i would not go beyond 20 units until like patty said do a full curve and if you see any symptoms of low blood sugar i would continue to lower the dose
    if your not monitoring blood sugar at home i would recommend it and lots of info and you can ask for help on the forum
    one test means very little if you think about it you have 23 hours and 59 minutes that you dont know the level of blood sugar from what we see on the forum dogs blood sugar can wildly fluctuate over the day
