What is MATERNAL DEATH? What does MATERNAL DEATH mean? MATERNAL DEATH meaning - MATERNAL DEATH definition - MATERNAL DEATH explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Maternal death is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as "the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management but not from accidental or incidental causes." The world mortality rate has declined 45% since 1990, but still every day 800 women die from pregnancy or childbirth related causes. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) this is equivalent to "about one woman every two minutes and for every woman who dies, 20 or 30 encounter complications with serious or long-lasting consequences. Most of these deaths and injuries are entirely preventable." UNFPA estimated that 289,000 women died of pregnancy or childbirth related causes in 2013. These causes range from severe bleeding to obstructed labour, all of which have highly effective interventions. As women have gained access to family planning and skilled birth attendance with backup emergency obstetric care, the global maternal mortality ratio has fallen from 380 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 1990 to 210 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2013, and many countries halved their maternal death rates in the last 10 years. Worldwide mortality rates have been decreasing in modern age. High rates still exist, particularly in impoverished communities with over 85% living in Africa and Southern Asia. The effect of a mother's death results in vulnerable families and their infants, if they survive childbirth, are more likely to die before reaching their second birthday. Factors that increase maternal death can be direct or indirect. Generally, there is a distinction between a direct maternal death that is the result of a complication of the pregnancy, delivery, or management of the two, and an indirect maternal death. that is a pregnancy-related death in a patient with a preexisting or newly developed health problem unrelated to pregnancy. Fatalities during but unrelated to a pregnancy are termed accidental, incidental, or nonobstetrical maternal deaths. The most common causes are postpartum bleeding (15%), complications from unsafe abortion (15%), hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (10%), postpartum infections (8%), and obstructed labour (6%). Other causes include blood clots (3%) and pre-existing conditions (28%). Indirect causes are malaria, anaemia, HIV/AIDS, and cardiovascular disease, all of which may complicate pregnancy or be aggravated by it. Sociodemographic factors such as age, access to resources and income level are significant indicators of maternal outcomes. Young mothers face higher risks of complications and death during pregnancy than older mothers, especially adolescents aged 15 years or younger. Adolescents have higher risks for postpartum hemorrhage, puerperal endometritis, operative vaginal delivery, episiotomy, low birth weight, preterm delivery, and small-for-gestational-age infants, all of which can lead to maternal death. Structural support and family support influences maternal outcomes. Furthermore, social disadvantage and social isolation adversely affects maternal health which can lead to increases in maternal death. Additionally, lack of access to skilled medical care during childbirth, the travel distance to the nearest clinic to receive proper care, number of prior births, barriers to accessing prenatal medical care and poor infrastructure all increase maternal deaths. Unsafe abortion is another major cause of maternal death. According to the World Health Organization, every eight minutes a woman dies from complications arising from unsafe abortions. Complications include hemorrhage, infection, sepsis and genital trauma. Globally, preventable deaths from improperly performed procedures constitute 13% of maternal mortality, and 25% or more in some countries where maternal mortality from other causes is relatively low, making unsafe abortion the leading single cause of maternal mortality worldwide.

Are Both Type 1 And Type 2 Diabetes Patients At The Risk Of Death?

Are both type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients at the risk of death? Yes, absolutely. Every single person on the planet with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes will die. But don’t worry, so will everyone else - it is all just a matter of time. The real question should be are they at risk of a premature death due to their conditions, and unfortunately the answer to that is also yes for various reasons. The first reason is the impact of long-term high blood glucose levels, including damage to large and small blood vessels, which can lead to heart attack and stroke, and problems with the kidneys, eyes, feet and nerves. Another risk often overlooked is overdosing on insulin. Insulin is a highly dangerous hormone, taking too much will cause a person to slip into a hypoglycemic coma which can lead to death. Alternatively, it is possible to die from not getting enough (or any insulin), due to Diabetic ketoacidosis Continue reading >>

    Jason has been running low to mid 200s every night at bedtime. I am wondering if Lantus isn't lasting the full 24 hours. I have read about people having success with splitting the dose to combat that. Any ideas on how to do the switchover without him being sky high the first morning?

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

Key Data: Diet, Weight And Diabetes

Men generally eat a poorer diet than women and are less knowledgeable about healthy foods. 24% of men and 29% of women consumed the recommended five or more portions of fruit and vegetables daily in England in 2011 (Reference: Information Centre). Consumption varied with age among both sexes, being lowest among those aged 16-24 (15% of men and 20% of women this age ate five or more portions) (Reference: Information Centre). Higher consumption was also associated with higher income: 32% of men and 37% of women in the highest income quintile consumed five or more portions in 2009, but only 18% of men and 19% of women in the lowest quintile had done so (Reference: Information Centre). A higher proportion of women (78%) than men (62%) were aware that five portions of fruit and vegetables should be consumed per day (Reference: Information Centre). In England in 2014, 81% of men and 53% of women were estimated to exceed the recommended maximum salt consumption of no more than 6g per day Mean estimated salt intake for adults aged 19 to 64 years was 8.0g/day (33% higher than the SACN recommended maximum); 9.1g/day for men and 6.8g/day for women. Median estimated salt intake was 7.6g/day (2 Continue reading >>

    Are Grits OK?

    I am a newly diagnosed Type 2 and frankly don't know where to start on a correct diet. I don't eat breakfast and I know that is one of the things I need to start. I've read some of the past posts and will train plain Cheerios, Total, boiled eggs, and plain yogurt. Since I'm from the south, I was wondering if I could eat grits occasionally as well? I've never tried oatmeal and I know grits are from corn not oats. Just wondering...Thanks ahead of time.

  2. hannahtan

    Although i don't know what grits are... sounds like its like oatmeal?
    You will need to experiment to see whether your body can tolerate it... take a small portion and then check your levels after 2 hours... if the level is high... then you might want to consider cutting down the portion further... and if that doesn't work as well... eliminate it from your diet as it would not be suitable for you...
    personally... i do eat oatmeal and i find it ok for me in a small portion (like half a bowl)... but some members here will find the tiniest bit of oatmeal can spike their bg levels quite high

  3. jwags

    If you are trying to use low carb diet to control your bg's I would avoid all cereals. Do you have a carb counter book. If not , buy one. Mine is a little paperback and is invaluable. It lists the carb value of all foods and a lot of restaurants. It list grits as 32 carbs for 1/4 cup uncooked. I've never made grits so I'm not sure how much you use and whether you have to add sugar or not to sweeten. Every product you buy has a nutrition label. Start reading the labels and buy the lowest carb items you can found. Every diabetic is different in what we can eat safely. Many of us are insulin resistant and find we need to keep the carb count for the total meal fairly low. I find if I eat more than 15 carbs I will spike. You many be allowed to eat more than me without spiking. The only way you know is to test 90 minutes to 2 hours after you eat. Your number should be 120-140 or less. By doing this consistently you will see your fasting numbers go lower.

Diabetes Fact Sheet

The Big D: defeating diabetes through diet By Veronika Powell (formerly Charvatova) MSc, Viva!Health Campaigner As diabetes continues to spread all over the world, it is essential that an effective approach to its prevention and treatment is adopted. Current mainstream recommendations are not powerful enough and medication does not treat the condition. Diabetes mellitus is a health condition characterised by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood, which the body cannot use properly and eventually excretes in the urine (together with a lot of water). It is caused either by the pancreas not producing hormone insulin (or not enough of it) or by the body cells’ inability to react to insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and acts as a key that lets glucose into the body’s cells. Glucose is a vital source of energy for the cells and thus the main fuel for the body’s processes. It comes from digesting carbohydrate and it’s also partially produced by the liver. Carbohydrates are the main nutrient in healthy foods such as wholegrain or rye bread, pasta, oats, brown rice, pulses (beans, peas, and lentils), sweet potatoes, and in not so healthy foods such as white bread, c Continue reading >>

    I have gestational diabetes (diagnosed at 30 weeks) and am now being insulin controlled after diet controlled didn't affect my sugar levels one bit (still around 11.1 one hour after meals). I've only been on insulin a week and it has had a small effect but it sounds like they need to up my dose next week to find one that suits me. I'm sure it will work.
    I'm 34 weeks today. Even though my bump feels quite big and friends think I'm huge(!) I don't actually think I'm as big as people make out. There feels a lot of water in there and when she moves it feels quite deep within rather than near the surface, so I'm not too concerned she is big for dates.... yet. Although I'm measuring 1-2 cm more than weeks and I have a growth scan scheduled on Wednesday, but I hear they are notoriously poor at estimating weights.
    Everyone is telling me I should be pushing for an early induction. However my twin sister who also had GD but wasn't diagnosed till late and wasn't on insulin, had a C section at 38 weeks and her little boy was a whopper at nearly 12lbs!!! I am also aware of the risks of early induction, sections and also leaving GD babies past full term. So basically, all options in my situation.
    Has anyone had any experience of diabetes and early inductions/sections and be willing to share? Do you have any say in the matter? Was anyone left to give birth naturally and what size was little one if that was the case at how many weeks? What do consultations tend to do in these situations?
    Really appreciate reading anyone's experience.

    Oh forgot to also ask - those that were insulin controlled - did it work in bringing sugar levels down and therefore result in an average sized baby in the end??

  3. philly1982

    Hi hun. I have normal type 1 diabetes so can only give you advice from my point.
    You are right about the fluids. If your sugars have been high is can increase the fluid around baby, as well as what most women know causing it to be big. There is a strong chance if your sugars have been over 10 that baby is bigger than they should be but that is just due to the sugar. If you manage to get it under control then it should be ok.
    I take insulin after every meal. Do you take it like that or twice a day? How many times are you checking bloods? It may be better for you to inject after every meal then you should be able to keep your levels normal. Mine rarley go above 7 but i have moments when i'm stressed, hot or feeling run down when they can get above 10.
    I had a scan recently and bub was in the average growth so it doesn't always mean you will have a big baby. I hope this helps you a little. You can always pm me if you have any worries. xxx
