Gestational Diabetes

Springer Science & Business Media
Free sample

In developed countries the incidence of gestational diabetes lies between 1 and 8%. With the general decrease of perinatal mortality and morbidity, the complications arising from gestational diabetes have become more striking and significant. Moreover, impaired maternal carbohydrate metabolism may lead to non genetic fuel mediated disposition to diabetes in the offspring. The renewed topicality has greatly stimulated research in this field. This book provides both a general survey and the current thinking on special questions of gestational diabetes. It also deals with related topics such as epidemiology, prognosis, follow-up, contraception, etc. The book is addressed to obstetricians and other physicians engaged in prenatal care as well as to internists and neonatologists.

The Harvard-educated physician and New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven metabolic hormones, making you lose weight and feel great fast!

When it comes to weight loss, most people don’t think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to your seven major metabolic hormones—cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin, and estrogen—your body adjusts by increasingly raising your hormone levels and ultimately slowing down your metabolism. And a slower metabolism leads to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. The solution, Dr. Sara Gottfried contends, is to reset the efficiency of your hormones by repairing and growing new hormone receptors.

Based on leading scientific research, The Hormone Reset Diet is her proven weight loss and energy program to reverse hormone resistance in just three weeks. It will help you:

Boost your metabolism and calorie burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors; Increase your weight loss by re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors; Reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors (for better processing cortisol).

For the last twenty years, this Harvard-MIT educated physician has helped thousands of women address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging, and illness. Going beyond her bestselling The Hormone Cure, this program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight loss.

 <p>For over a century, we&rsquo;ve accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if cancer isn&rsquo;t a genetic disease after all? What if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm, and cancer isn&rsquo;t a disease of damaged DNA but rather of <i>defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction</i>? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases as well&mdash;and show us a radical new path to optimal health?</p><p>In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, <i>New York Times</i> best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what&rsquo;s really causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating 90 percent of the energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria become damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.</p><p>Dr. Mercola shows you that you can to take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel&mdash;and it&rsquo;s not what you&rsquo;ve likely been led to believe. A <i>ketogenic</i> diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing&mdash;not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.</p><p>As you read this book, you&rsquo;ll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You&rsquo;ll finally understand the type of fuel it&rsquo;s designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You&rsquo;ll find detailed guidelines for starting and sticking with a ketogenic eating plan. And you won&rsquo;t have to wait a decade or two for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain at the cutting edge of this exciting new discipline, starting right now.</p>
