Episode Info

Episode Info: Dr. Joseph Sgroi was talking about Hyperemesis Gravidarum on twitter recently and we chatted (tweeted? Twittered?) about a few different things related to that, so I thought it would be fun to have him on to talk about what he sees in his practice in Melbourne, Australia. In this episode: h.pylori infections Urinary tract infections High levels of HCG Molar pregnancy Thyrotoxicosis: Here is an article that explains it better. It's worth getting your thyroid hormone levels checked as being hyper and hypo can cause problems for you and the baby. Mutations at the hCG receptors and of the hormone itself, possibly. Misfiring could over-stimulate the thyroid No tests to predict this, unfortunately. Progesterone and Estrogen could also contribute to HG Can't smell, can't get HG? (Does anyone have any anecdotes about that?) Possible helps: REST, modify foods, acupressure, medication, being proactive, ginger (there are studies, as we know), zinc, hospitalizations Important to plan for pregnancy and maximize your health prior. Find out if you have any deficiencies.
