Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Rating: 4.0/5 (1 vote cast)

This is a problem that will occur when a baby is born that is not fully developed. Usually, it is something that only occurs in premature babies. It will make it harder for the baby to breath on its own.

When a baby is born, there is a substance called surfactant that is present in the lungs. However, babies with this syndrome will not have enough of this slippery substance. Surfactant is important because it is what helps the lungs have the ability to fill with air and to retain that air.

The majority of babies that have this syndrome are born before 37 weeks of pregnancy. The less the lungs have developed, the higher the risk that the baby will develop this syndrome.

When-a-baby-is-born-there-is-a-substance-called-surfactant-that-is-present-in-the-lungsWhen the lungs don’t develop correctly, due to genetic problems, this syndrome will surface. There are some items that can increase the chances of this occurring. For example, if a brother or sister had the syndrome, the mother has diabetes or when a C-section was performed before the baby was full-term, there is a high chance that the baby will be born with this syndrome.

In order to diagnosis this condition, doctors will look for a blue tint to the baby’s skin. They will also look for unusual breathing movement and rapid or shallow breathing.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
