Getting diagnosed with gestational diabetes is scary, but it doesn't have to stay that way. Imagine easily managing your blood sugar, effortlessly gaining the right amount of weight during your pregnancy, and giving birth to a beautiful, healthy baby. This can be you! Real Food for Gestational Diabetes offers an alternative to the conventional nutrition approach that embraces nutrient-dense and delicious foods that nourish you and baby without causing high blood sugar. With the wrong information (or no information at all), far too many women are left alone struggling with erratic blood sugar and excessive weight gain, often leading to high doses of insulin or medications. Sadly, this often happens despite these moms dutifully following the dietary advice given to them by well­-meaning clinicians; a restrictive diet that leaves them feeling unsatisfied, unhappy, and confused about ever ­increasing blood sugars. In Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, prenatal nutritionist and diabetes educator, Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE, CLT, sets the record straight, offering revamped carbohydrate recommendations and exercise guidelines based on the latest clinical research. You can have gestational diabetes and have a healthy baby. Lily will show you how. With this book, you have the tools to turn this diagnosis into a blessing in disguise.You'll learn:Why conventional diet therapy often fails and what to do insteadHow the right prenatal nutrition can reduce the likelihood you'll need insulin by 50%Exactly which foods raise your blood sugar (and more importantly, which foods DON'T raise your blood sugar)How to customize a meal plan with the right amount of carbohydrates for YOU (there's no one-size-fits-all plan, despite what you may have been told)The truth about ketosis during pregnancy (and why checking urine ketones isn't useful)Information on insulin and blood sugar-lowering medications used in pregnancyWhich foods to emphasize to provide your baby with the right nutrients for optimal development (these real foods have a long history of producing strong, healthy babies)The best prenatal exercises to control your blood sugar and prepare for laborWhat to do after delivery to prevent type 2 diabetes

«Tenemos verdaderamente la posibilidad de realizar progresos hacia una vida más larga y más sana para millones de personas.» «Es preciso seguir trabajando aumentar la asignación de recursos e intensificar la colaboración entre los distintos asociados.» - Dr. Jong-Wook Lee Director General OMS El Informe sobre la salud en el mundo 2003 - Forjemos el futuro predice que en los próximos años se lograrán importantes mejoras sanitarias en el mundo. El Dr. Jong-Wook Lee Director General de la OMS afirma que la OMS tiene la ambición de «ayudar a todos los seres humanos en especial a los más pobres a forjar un futuro mejor». El informe sostiene que una nueva campaña que permita mejorar la salud y hacerla más equitativa es una parte esencial de la labor internacional en pro de la justicia y la seguridad. Partiendo de lo aprendido del pasado en particular con relación al movimiento de la Salud para Todos puesto en marcha hace 25 años el informe de este año se centra en las principales mejoras sanitarias que se podrán alcanzar en los próximos años y muestra cómo la OMS y la comunidad sanitaria internacional pueden lograr esos objetivos. Con el telón de fondo de las ambiciosas metas que representan los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio el Informe sobre la salud en el mundo 2003 presenta una perspectiva general que comprende un análisis de los principales desafíos sanitarios actuales y un programa de acción para mejorar la salud en el mundo. En la sección dedicada a las enfermedades infecciosas se señala que ha de prestarse especial atención al VIH/SIDA a la poliomielitis cuya erradicación está cerca y a las nuevas infecciones de las que el SRAS es un ejemplo ilustrativo. Otra sección importante trata de la salud de la mujer y el niño. La sección dedicada a las enfermedades no transmisibles se centra en las enfermedades cardiovasculares los traumatismos y la prosecución de la lucha antitabáquica. Con el fin de lograr las mejoras sanitarias que están a su alcance los países han de contar con sistemas de salud eficaces. El informe muestra cómo pueden robustecerse esos sistemas combinando los servicios de atención primaria y los servicios especializados mediante una red eficiente e integrada de referencia. En ese aspecto al igual que en toda su labor la OMS reitera su compromiso de colaborar con los países para responder a los retos sanitarios a nivel nacional y local.
