Karyotyping - is it done to check all pregnant women over age 35years?

Karyotyping - is it done to check all pregnant women over age 35years?

Not always: The decision to do an amniocentesis in order to do karyotyping is a personal decision and carries up to a 1 in 200 miscarriage rate. The information obtained would classically be used to decide upon termination or not as there is no treatable or correctable chromosome abnormality. At 35 years old and above, the risk of a chromosome defect is 1 in 200 or greater. ...Read more

I read in japan pregnant women continue to eat sushi and raw fish when pregant. I read that there are no conclusive studies regarding the ban, true?

I read in japan pregnant women continue to eat sushi and raw fish when pregant. I read that there are no conclusive studies regarding the ban, true?

The FDA disapproves!: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy. Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish. ...Read more

Is there any evidence that a pregnant woman's smoking predisposes her children to any addiction?

Is there any evidence that a pregnant woman's smoking predisposes her children to any addiction?

Smoking vs pregnancy: Pregnancy is simply not the time to smoke wherupon nicotine byproducts are absorbed by the fetus as well as carbon monoxide.( yes, the stuff from car exhausts!). Addictions such as smoking can be environmentally transmitted to infants and children by parents, but I do not know of any double blind study implicating a predisposition intra-natally due to high risk to the fetuses as research subjects. ...Read more

Some latest research info I came across says that full-fat, & not low-fat dairy, is best. Can we take this as conclusive proof? TQ

Some latest research info I came across says that full-fat, & not low-fat dairy, is best. Can we take this as conclusive proof? TQ

Not conclusive proof: Current thinking is: the sugar and simple carbohydrates are the enemy, not the fat. It is not conclusive proof (conclusive proof is very, very hard to come by). It will take many more years to see what happens after our population gets off sugar and simple carbs, and eats a variety of fats... and then researchers will try to figure out the new results. Meanwhile, eat very little sugar. ...Read more

Is it true or a myth that expired tetracyclines are toxic? Are there some studies or just one paper from 50 years ago? Any good, modern data about it?

I have not heard thi: Many meds have expiration dates that are purely a marketing tool to get the patient to throw away the meds and but more. . Otherwise the manufacturers would not have to make so many to fill the need of filling garbage cans with "dated " pills. Really old pills are probably not a good idea and especially if they have not been stored properly. ...Read more
