According to Marcela and an article from Cindy Cleary and Jo DelAmor, calcium in milk cannot be absorbed in our bodies because there is not a sufficient amount of magnesium. In order to absorb 1500mg of calcium, you would have to consume 750mg of magnesium; milk contains 300mg of calcium and 27mg of magnesium, you would need 123mg more of magnesium in order for the calcium in milk to absorb to its full potential. As a result, calcium from milk is deposited into soft tissue rather than bones (Cleary; DelAmor). The lack of absorption leads to other harmful problems such as kidney stones, arthritis, and gout. Milk also goes through a process called pasteurization, its intentions are to kill the bad bacteria, but it also strips away enzymes and nutrients that help digest the milk.
With Type I diabetes, the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Consequently, anyone with Type I diabetes must receive daily insulin injections. The insulin must be injected into the body because if it is taken orally, stomach acids will make the insulin ineffective to the body. The primary targets for this type of diabetes are children and young adults, but it can affect people of any age. The destruction of beta cells cause Type I diabetes.
All diabetic symptoms disappear following delivery. Gestational diabetes is caused by blocking effects of other hormones on the insulin that is produced, a condition referred to as insulin resistance. Although the cause of gestational diabetes is unknown, there are some theories as to why the condition occurs. The placenta supplies a growing fetus with nutrients and water, as well as produces a variety of hormones to maintain the pregnancy. Some of these hormones such as estrogen, cortisol, and human placental lactogen, can have a blocking effect on insulin.
A woman cannot get pregnant if she doesn't ovulate because there is no egg to be fertilized. The pill also works by thickening the mucus around the cervix, which makes it hard for sperm to enter the uterus and contact any eggs that may have been released. Examples of birth control pills are Brevicon,
Hormone imbalance is one of the many negative aspects of this disease. Not only does PCOS affect a female’s hormones and ability to conceive a child, it also affects her overall long term health. Women with PCOS are at higher risks for health problems: heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, infertility, and diabetes. PCOS can also lead to endometrial cancer, which is caused by an absence of periods. This causes the female to produce the hormone estrogen, but not progesterone, which does not allow the uterus to shed.
Diabetes effects a person’s diet as the body can’t use sugar and carbohydrates as well as it should as the pancreas can’t produce enough insulin to break the sugars down to turn into a source of energy. Coeliac Disease Coeliac Disease is a condition when someone is intolerant to the protein gluten so they must avoid all foods containing wheat, rye and barley. Failure to do so results in their immune system producing antibodies which attacks the lining of their bowel causing them to have abdominal pains, constipation/diarrhoea, bloating, difficulty in gaining weight in childhood or maintaining weight in adulthood and anaemia. Because it affects the way their body can absorb
D&E, which stands for dilation and evacuation, is a type of in-clinic abortion that is used on women who are more than four months pregnant (Planned Parenthood, 2012). The abortion pill is another common type of abortion that women use. It can only be used to treat a pregnancy earlier than nine weeks (Planned Parenthood, 2012). The pill is about 97% effective and can cause incomplete abortions, where part of the pregnancy is still left inside the uterus
If the mother’s water breaks before she reaches the hospital, she should notify her Dr. If the fluid is brown or greenish; Amniotic fluid should be clear. A fetal monitor can also detect meconium aspiration. The fetal monitor will show a slow heart rate. After delivery signs of aspiration may include, rapid or labored breathing, bluish colored skin (cyanosis), limpness and bradycardia or slow heart rate.
Type 1 diabetes is the type of Diabetes usually diagnosed in children and young adults. With Type 1 the person’s body does not produce insulin in order to break down the sugars, starches and other foods a person eats. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. According to the ADA, “In Type 2 Diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin” (1). This is dangerous because a body needs insulin in order to produce glucose for energy.
