Hello, thanks for the query. The query says marle & 24 years old. Then talks about pregnancy. Please clarify about whom are you asking the question? Tsh 12.705 mu/l is too high. Thyroid functions should have been checked before getting pregnant by this lady. Because tsh should be maintained around 2.5 mu/l or less even before getting conception. Higher values are not good for fetal development and for outcome of pregnancy. Please consult the gynecologist and endocrinologist for reducing the tsh. )r else come back with following details: age, weight, height, lipid profile, bp readings as there is a need to initiate treatment with levothyroxine immediately. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drugs can be prescribed. I hope the seriousness of the situation is understood. Thanks.

Pregnant Women's Health And Malaria - Know All About It!

Pregnant Women's Health And Malaria - Know All About It!

Malaria is a disease that is caused by the bite of a certain mosquito or protozoan parasite. This can attack the red blood cells and is mainly found in tropical as well as subtropical areas. Until recently, there was little chance of recovering from this ailment. Yet, in today's day and age of great medical advancement, it has become possible to cure a patient suffering from this disease with the help of timely and proper diagnosis. This disease becomes even more complicated and problematic when it affects pregnant women.

The ways in which this disease can be treated during pregnancy is as follows:

  1. Medication therapy: If a woman is found to be suffering from this disease in the second or third trimester of their pregnancy, they may be prescribed artemisinin-based therapy. This therapy can be used only if the pregnant lady is not suffering from any other kind of complications like heart conditions, diabetes and high blood pressure, during the pregnancy. This medicine is short-acting, with artemether or artesunate, which can greatly reduce the number of parasites that may have invaded the red blood cells.
  2. Other antimalarials: The treatment of this disease for pregnant women can also be done with the help of other antimalarials, which should typically be prescribed and administered in a clinical setting. These also include quinidine gluconate which can be used in place of the IV quinine in order to bring down the number of parasites in the body. This will lessen the attack on the red blood cells to a great degree. Lumefantrine tablets may also be used in such cases. Also, the doctor will have to first try a test dose to ensure that the patient is not allergic to any of the elements or compounds of these medicines.
  3. Monitoring: Pregnant women suffering from malaria will need to get their blood samples tested on a regular basis. The blood smears will usually be tested daily to check whether the body is responding adequately to the treatment. This will also ensure that the doctor knows when to change the dose or the drug involved.
  4. Diet and exercise: The patient will be asked to stick to the normal diet and activity levels. Yet, care must be taken to avoid any situation where fatigue might set in, as this can aggravate the condition. One must also increase the intake of water to ensure that the body is always well hydrated. This helps the body in bouncing back to normal as the toxins are continuously flushed out, and the immunity system is better equipped to fight the disease-causing parasites.

Ascoril SF Expectorant may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. 1. Do saline gargles. 2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of AC. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, When there is temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected. 4. Drink Hot Liquids --Hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. 5. Sleep With an Extra Pillow Under Your Head-- Elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. 6. Treat That Stuffy Nose With Warm Salt Water-- Salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. 7. Blow Your Nose Often (and the Right Way)-- It's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: Press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results. Consult online for details.

Multiple Gestation Pregnancy - Know More About It!

Multiple Gestation Pregnancy - Know More About It!

While getting pregnant and conceiving a baby is a perfectly normal physical function that most women go through, there are certain conditions that may lead to untoward complications. In most cases, there are various treatments and precautionary measures once that happens. Yet, there are conditions like multiple gestation pregnancy, that may be difficult to contain and manage. A multiple gestation pregnancy is when a mother is carrying more than one fetus in her womb. This is a very rare condition that affects a few women and not all. Most of the multiple gestation pregnancies usually involve twins. However, others could include triplets or even quadruplets. One can know about the multiple pregnancies through an ultrasound exam.

There are women who are more likely to have more than one baby. These women include the following:

  1. Women over the age of 30
  2. Women with a family history of multiple gestation pregnancy
  3. Obese women
  4. Those who have undergone treatments for fertility
  5. Caucasian women

There are certain signs and symptoms to a multiple pregnancy that separates it from a regular one. These include the following:

  1. Highly sore breasts
  2. Simultaneous foetal movements in separate areas of the womb
  3. An enlarged uterus
  4. High levels of morning sickness
  5. Rise in the human chorionic gonadotropin and alpha-fetoprotein substances
  6. Multiple heartbeats

There are certain risks and complications that come along with a multiple gestation pregnancy. Complications with the babies include the following:

  1. Premature birth is the most common among those, i.e. delivery before 37 weeks.
  2. These infants incur health problems.
  3. Sometimes it could also lead to cerebral palsy or even certain learning or behaviourism problems.
  4. Spina bifida and congenital heart defects
  5. Unequal growth in either of the babies
  6. Underweight infants
  7. Twin-twin transfusion syndrome where the twins might have adjoined body parts.

There are many other complications that may lead to this condition. Other complications in the mother include the following:

  1. Diabetes
  2. Anemia
  3. Pre-term labour
  4. Excessive amniotic fluid
  5. Miscarriage
  6. Post-partum depression
  7. Post-partum haemorrhage
  8. Premature birth

Women who are undergoing a multiple gestation pregnancy should be taken care of more efficiently. There are certain things that need to be taken care of. These include the following:

  1. Diet: Having a healthy diet is very important for a pregnant woman. Additional folic acid, calcium and iron are required. Also, a diet rich in protein is mandatory.
  2. Exercising: Yoga, walking and breathing exercises are great for women with multiple pregnancies. However, in the later stage, she should do lesser activities and indulge in some amount of bed rest.
  3. Genetic testing: If you have health problems that may be hereditary, tests like chorionic villus sampling are very important since one fetus might acquire the health problem while the other may not.
