With the average BMI on the rise and the age of first time pregnancy gradually crossing 30 in the urban areas, there are a lot of women who face the issue of being overweight. Pregnancy brings with it a bout of weight gain, and in overweight women, this only adds to the problem. A BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight; a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese.
Obesity brings with it a lot of complications for the baby and the mother. Some of them have been listed below:
- Fetal loss: Excess weight increases chances of miscarriage.
- Preterm birth: This is also in part due to the complications associated with increased weight during pregnancy.
- Still birth: This risk increases with obesity.
- Birth defects: The risk of birth defects like heart defects and neural tube defects increase with obesity.
- Gestational diabetes: The woman gets diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy and may require a cesarean section.
- Preeclampsia: Increased blood pressure can develop in women who are overweight. If not treated, this could even turn into a fatal condition.
- Sleep apnea: This is a breathing disorder with loss of breathing for short periods of time.
Some of the suggestions one must follow in order to manage weight during pregnancy include the following:
- Do a weight check when you plan for pregnancy. It is always easier to achieve weight loss and then go for pregnancy than vice versa.
- Check the BMI and ensure it is brought down to the 20 to 25 range before pregnancy.
- Once pregnant, constantly monitor your weight. It should be correlated with the growth of the baby to ensure the weight gain is normal.
- Plan your meals. Get a nutritionist’s help to plan out a detailed meal chart. Remember that though most people believe that you need to eat extra during pregnancy, it is not true. You only need to eat about 300 calories extra per day, which is sufficient for the baby’s growth. More important is to ensure the baby receives the required nutrients, including folic acid, calcium, iron, etc.
- Stay active during pregnancy. While hard-core gymming is off limits, regular yoga and brisk walking are ideal for keeping yourself flexible and to ensure an active lifestyle.
- Undertake lifestyle changes like quit smoking and avoid excessive drinking to keep a check on your weight.
It is very important to constantly stay in touch with your doctor and monitor your weight regularly. Even slightly more than desirable weight gain should immediately be brought under control to avoid complications for both, the mother and the baby.
My wife is 2 months pregnant now every day in the evening and I'm the night she gets dizziness and tired his this common please let us know the precautions to be taken.
I have been diagnosed with PCOD 5 months back. After consulting a doctor, she prescribed me "Glyciphage SR 500" and "Folvite" and "Siphene 100" from 3rd day to 7th day. Now my period cycle is 32-33 days. On February 17 I was expecting my period, but didn't show up. All I've had is cramping on and off like it's going to stat. On February 20 (Today) I woke up to watery pink discharge but only when I wiped. I'm so confused and need advise.
I missed periods in February. 45 days over. I tested in home. Result is negative. But I have some symptoms like vomiting sensation, hip pain, tiredness and some times I have stomach pain also. And 1 more thing I have more tiredness in morning. In afternoon and evening I will be better. What is the reason? Please help me.
- Diet poor in zinc - inadequate intake of zinc rich foods like meat, shell fish, liver gelatin, beans, rice, bread, cereals lentils etc.
- Strict vegetarians: their main foods are grains and legumes which are high in phytic acid and they hamper the absorption of zinc from the food.
- Malabsorption syndrome.
- Chron`s disease / ulcerative colitis.
- Chronic liver disease.
- Chronic renal disease.
- Sickle cell disease.
- Smoking and high alcohol consumption.
- Elderly are more prone to deficiency.
Sign and symptoms:
- Reduced appetite.
- Retarded growth.
- Atrophy (shrinkage) of sexual organs.
- Loss of hair.
- Repiratory tract infection.
- Keratosis (desquamation) of tongue.
- Skin affections.
- Cognitive impairment.
- Infertility- low sperm count.
- Delayed healing of wounds.
- Decreased taste acuity.
- Deficiency during pregnancy can cause abnormal labor and retarded fetal growth.
- Increased risk of infection.
Consume foods rich in zinc: zinc is present in wide variety of foods especially along with proteins. Vegetarian diet contains less zinc compared to meat based diet. Best sources of zinc are -
- Beef, crabmeat, oysters, lamb, pork, turkey, salmon, shellfish, chicken, clams, lobster, milk, yoghurt and cheese cheddar.
- Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, brown rice, spinach, lentils, beans, lima beans, rye bread, peas and baked potatoes. Meat, eggs and seafood.
- Other sources of zinc are - green leafy vegetables, sea plants, japanese sea plants, yeast, nuts - cashews, almonds and peanuts, seeds - sesame and pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are one of the concentrated sources of zinc in vegetarian food.
- Only 20% of the zinc present in diet is absorbed by our body, dietary fibers and phytic acid present in food inhibits absorption of zinc. Phytic acid and fiber are fond in foods like - bran, whole grain cereals, pulses and nuts.
- Cooking process can reduce the effects of phytic acid and fibers on the absorption of zinc.
- Ferment whole grains as enzymatic actions of yeast reduces the levels of phytic acid and thus absorption of zinc is adequate.
