Is Gender A Factor In Hyperemesis Gravidarum
Depends: The treatment is complicated and involves many things. Starting with change in diet and meals scheduling to treatments with different medication to get vomiting under controll, treatment to hydrate you and balance back your electrolytes. Dont try to treat it on your know, let you doctor manage it.
Morning sickness: Often, particularly in early pregnancy, women will vomit. Sometimes in the morning, sometimes all day or night long. Hyper (increased or large) emesis (vomiting) gravidarum (the condition of being pregnant) literally means increased vomiting of pregnancy and when vomiting exceeds the ability to take in the amount of fluid that's lost then mom needs medical attention and sometimes hospitalization.
No difference: The definition of hyperemesis is not well defined. Generally if you are not able to tolerate oral intake you need to be evaluated by your doctor.
Can I b induce ...im 33 wks prego...with hyperemesis gravidarum....im.stressing out with this condition...
Unlikely: Few physicians would induce a patient at 33 weeks for hyperemesis gravidarum. While the nausea and vomiting can certainly be a debilitating problem there are means of treatment - the ultimate solution may be delivery, 39 weeks should be the goal for the end of your pregnancy. 37 weeks would likely be the minimal gestational age to consider elective delivery depending on the status of the baby.
Whatever works: We usually start with oral medications. If this doesn't work we move on to rectal suppositories, or dissolving tablets, or IV meds if needed. Difficult cases usually do well with zofran (ondansetron) or end up getting admitted for IV fluids, rest, & medications. Make sure you check with your doc to find what works best for you.See 1 more doctor answer
Whatever works: Unrelenting nausea and vomiting during pregnancy is most common around 10 to 14 weeks gestation. When necessary, it usually responds to IV hydration and antiemetic medications. Keeping yourself well hydrated will help, which can be difficult with persistent nausea and vomiting - keeping the nausea under control with oral medications is important - as dehydration worsens so does the hyperemesis.See 1 more doctor answer
Could be: But usually it is worse with the first pregnancy.
May be possible: all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't help the British princess. However, I just read today that women with recurrent hyperemesis gravidarum may have a mild form of a mitochondrial disorder, and giving them the B vitamins of the mitochondrial cocktail may be helpful. I'll have to search the Internet for more details, but it could be true.See 1 more doctor answer
my wife pregnant at 15 weeks complained of hyperemesis gravidarum now she decrease in weight what the appropriate treatment for her?
OB?: Have you talked with your OB about this? The most important thing is to keep hydrated and not lose more weight. There is a medication called Zofran (ondansetron) which is safe to use in pregnancy and can help with nausea and vomiting. She may need to see a nutritionist to get back on track with her weight as the pregnancy progresses.See 1 more doctor answer
How could i prevent hyperemesis gravidarum from happening again in my next pregnancy coz i had to lose my first baby due to difficulty of symptoms?
Not preventable: Unfortunately, you have no control over whether your get it and how severe it may be in a future pregnancy. If necessary, home care is usually possible with iv's and anti-emetic pumps until you get through the first trimester.
At 8 weeks pregnant my T4 levels are slightly elevated at 13.1. Recently i had symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum as well. Is this high enough to treat?
NORMAL!!: T4 should be between 12-15 in pregnancy! do not let anyone treat that! HCG stimulates thyroid to increase production since thyroid is most important hormone in early pregnancy for fetus. After 13 w baby makes own thyroid. The best indicator of healthy thyroid level in pregnancy is t4. 12-15 and TSH < 2.5.
