Obesity leads to pregnancy complication

Leading birth defects specialists say maternal obesity during pregnancy puts both mom and baby at risk, and they are calling on health care providers to spread the message.
Studies indicate obesity doubles a woman's chances of having a baby with neural tube
defects, and even adequate folic acid intake does not fully protect against the increase in risk.
Compared with normal-weight women, obese women have a greater risk of developing complications during pregnancy. Their babies are also more likely to be admitted to neonatal intensive care units.
Obesity a pregnancy risk factor, adding that women should be told about the risk in the same way that they are warned about the dangers of smoking and drinking alcohol during pregnancy. The Teratology Society studies the causes and processes of birth defects to improve diagnosis and prevention.
A woman who is 5 feet, 5 inches tall would be considered obese if she weighs 180 pounds or more. A 5-foot-8-inch woman would be considered obese if she tips the scales at
200 pounds or more.
The new report outlined specific risks associated with obesity during pregnancy, based on findings from recent studies.Among the report's highlights:
  • ·         Obese women have an increased risk of infertility and pregnancy-related complications, including hypertension,gestational diabetes, and blood clots.
  • ·         Women who are obese are more likely than women who aren't to require cesarean sections.
  • ·         A study from France found that hospital costs for prenatal care were dramatically higher for overweight and obese women. Costs were fivefold to 16-fold greater than for normal-weight women, depending on how much extra weight the women carried.
  • ·         The committee recommended that obese women should try to lose weight before becoming pregnant. But it warned women not to diet during pregnancy, noting that "adequate nutrition is important for pregnant women and women planning pregnancy."
  • ·         Some recent reports suggest that women with gastric banding can have normal pregnancies and better pregnancy outcomes than women who do not have the surgery, but the committee concluded that "it appears reasonable to recommend that pregnancy be delayed until surgery-related weight loss has stabilized."

Laser assisted Lipolysis is a minor body contouring procedure, which uses a fine cannula to deliver a safe, powerful laser to disrupt the fat cells causing them to melt and break down. Laser assisted Lipolysis does not involve any major procedure or general anaesthetic and tends not to give the bruising and extended recovery periods often

associated with traditional liposuction. The risk of skin sagging is reduced, as the heat from the laser tightens the underlying layers of skin leaving a smooth and sculptured finish. Treatment times vary but typically take about two - four hours and patients can return to their normal routine within a couple of days.

      The procedure is actually very straightforward. Firstly, you'll be given a local anaesthetic in the area you're having treated. This will numb the area, but you will remain awake and aware of what is happening. A surgeon will make a very small incision so that the laser can be inserted, and then it's a case of just lying back and relaxing for around one to two hours while the laser does its job. The exact amount of time it takes will largely depend upon the size of the area being treated.

Apa itu Lipolisis??

Fungsi sel lemak adalah untuk menyimpan bahan kimia yang dinamakan lipid. Lipid menyediakan tenaga untuk tubuh. Secara umumnya, tenaga berasal daripada makanan yang dimakan, dan ianya akan disimpan sebagai lemak dalam sel lemak. Apabila penggunaan tenaga lebih sedikit daripada penyimpanan tenaga maka akan berlakulah ketidakseimbangan. Jadi jika anda makan terlalu banyak tetapi tenaga yang dikeluarkan terlalu sedikit, maka lemak-lemak tersebut akan terkumpul. Oleh itu, kegemukan akan berlaku apabila proses mengeluarkan lemak terganggu, seperti terjadinya masalah hormon atau hormone imbalance.   Terdapat 3 lapisan lemak didalam tubuh manusia iaitu 2 lapisan lemak pada kulit dan satu lapisan lemak didalam tubuh yang dikenali sebagai lemak viscera.
