Preemie Medications May Contain Toxins

Potentially harmful agents called excipients are contained in liquid medicines commonly given to premature infants, according to a U.K. study.

Excipients are used to ease the administration, absorption or preservation of the active substances or to improve the taste and appearance of the liquid medicines, according to background information in the study.

The British researchers assessed the type and content of liquid medicines given to 38 premature babies in a neonatal intensive care unit. The babies were treated for between 2.5 weeks and nine weeks and given a range of treatments, including iron, vitamin drops, furosemide and fexamethasone.

During their treatment, the infants were regularly exposed to 20 different excipients, including ethanol (found in iron and furosemide) and propylene glycol (found in dexamethasone). These chemicals can cause nerve damage.

The infants' exposure to ethanol ranged from 0.2 ml to 1.8 ml a week, equivalent to one to seven units of alcohol, while exposure to sorbitol (dexamethasone and iron) ranged from 0.1 to 3.5 g/week. The recommended maximum intake of sorbitol for adults is 20 g/day. When calculated by weight, this level was exceeded in 18 babies for at least one week. The study also found that all babies given dexamethasone exceeded the recommended levels of propylene glycol, which is about two-thirds the strength of ethanol.

The seven infants with severe lung disease were exposed to higher levels of excipients than the other premature babies.


How Time Flies

This year, my daughter is going to be 5 years old. How time flies. I felt that it just yesterday I brought her home from hospital. I want her to grow up to become a smart and independent girl. I know that growing up means becoming one's own person. With that come differing opinions, rebellion, and loss of complete parental control. The humorous thing is that when our kids begin to exhibit this perfectly natural behavior, many of us cringe! Life was simpler when they didn't question our authority.

Anyway, there are many more years before my daughter will go through adolescent. I will help her to be more self-confident as a self confident will go a long way toward facilitating her success. Girls who feel competent can cope with life's stresses better than those who think they are inept. Self-assurance also allows girls to take the risks necessary to learn and grow. For your daughter to become strong, feel good about who she is, and draw upon her inner resources, she must (1) get to know herself well, (2) think of herself as capable, and (3) believe she can measure up to others' expectations.

Like all the smart girls that Amy Poehler interviewed in this below video. I saw that all of them very confident with themselves.

Up Date

Remember my SIL that have oligohydramnios complication with her pregnancy? In the end the water getting less and less until it is less than 1 cm. The doctor did another 4D ultra sound and found out that the baby kindney was not functioning. I think this was the reason why there was no water, because the baby was not urinated.

Anyway, since it was dangerous for the mother to have less than 1 cm water, the doctor decided to induce he to labor. Her pregnancy was 25 weeks at that time. After more than 25 hours in labor, the baby was born. It was a baby boy! His length was 11 inch and weight about 900 grams. However due to the condition of his lungs and kidneys, he only lived for 20 minutes. However, the mother is doing fine. I think that is the most important thing. Hopefully, they can get over their grief fast and trying to get pregnant again soon.

Maternity Shirt

I found out that I was pregnant with my first child on Valentine’s Day. After 2 years trying for a baby, I didn’t want to hang my hope too high when I was late for 2 weeks. I still remember that it was Saturday. My husband just arrived from work and hand me roses. I asked him to buy pregnancy kit test just to make sure that I didn’t pregnant since I had to go to overseas the following week. I didn’t believe my eyes, when I saw the two lines on my pregnancy test. In the end I cancelled my trip. It really was a very memorable Valentine’s Day and I was very happy to find out that I was pregnant. Only a few months later, I found out the gender of the baby. I wish I had these Baby ParTees Maternity Shirts to wear, so I can tell the whole world that I was going to have a baby girl.

I always like to drink avocado juice since I was small. Mixed with sugar or condensed milk, coffee or chocolate and blend it together. Hmmmmm yummy!!! I can even eat it with sugar just like that. One of my uncle’s houses has an avocado tree in the front yard. Thus, I always had a lot supply of avocado for free.

I don’t know why in Malaysia there is very low supply of avocado. All the avocado I found in the supermarket is imported one and the price is very expensive. No wonder a lot of people here don’t know how to eat avocado. Sometimes when I bought avocado, there is people asking me what I am going to do with it. Eat them of course! They missed out a lot of they never try avocado.

Not only tasty, avocado have a lot of benefits too:
1. Avocado has been used traditionally to help people with sexual problems.

2. Great antioxidant and can be used for skin disorders

3. Avocado will aid healing for people suffering from digestive and circulatory problems

4. Another benefit of avocado for the skin where avocado paste can be applied to rashes and rough skin to make it smoother.

5. The brighter the fruit, the more beta-carotene (the substance that helps to prevent cancer) your avocado contains.

and .... (hold your breath!)

Played Piano

I have friend last time in high school that can play piano. She was a very clever girl and always top of the class. Almost everyday I came to her house to study together because her house was a walking distance from my house. After studying, she always played piano for me. She made me want to learn also. Then she taught me to play one song, and silly me, I could not get it right. So I kept playing and kept making mistake, until another friend that lived across the road, dropped by and asked what happened. Once he found out that it was me who played the piano, he said: no wonder. Hahahahaha

To Do List

I just love it when I had a good productive day. All the chores and job sometimes makes me overwhelm in the beginning of the day. I am a housewife, and I have a daughter to take care, I also have work to do (I work at home), and I also have a hobby turn to side business to tend to.

Luckily, I am staying with my parent in law, so I don’t have to cook. My MIL cooks for me. So, every morning, when I check my work email and see so many emails to follow up, it kind of depressed me. Because I know then that day I won’t be able to spend time on my side business.

Sometimes, you want to delay and push aside problems. However, they will nag you the whole day and you still have to face it tomorrow. It won’t go away by themselves.

Normally, if I feel overwhelmed, I will list all the things that I have to do. Just list everything that you can think of, then I will tackled the easiest first. Once done, scrap it. After several things done, I will feel much better and have more energy to finish the rest.

But, in the end of the day, if I managed to finish all the chores and settled all the problems, I will feel satisfied and accomplished


Pain Killer Addiction

Since I was small, I was easily to get headache. Sometimes the pain is unbearable that I have to eat pain killer medicine. At one time I got headache almost everyday. I know that eat painkiller everyday is not good. I don’t want to be a victim of painkiller addiction. With regular use, even when you follow the prescription exactly as the doctor intended, the body quickly develops a tolerance to opioid-based painkillers. This tolerance is the hallmark of physical dependency, and the beginning of painkiller addiction. When your body stops producing the chemicals it needs to manage pain and create happy feelings naturally, pain pill addiction deepens. Should you try to stop taking your prescription, you will experience serious physical withdrawal symptoms. Your behavior begins to change and your focus shifts to maintaining your pill supply and the amount of the drug in your body.

Promises is drug treatment center that treats addiction to a variety of drugs and substances, including: Alcohol, Cocaine, Codeine, Heroin, Marijuana, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone, and many others. They offer a comprehensive continuum of treatment services to ensure that you receive the appropriate level of care based upon your needs. Providing you with what you need – when you need it – is an important part of a successful recovery.


Injection of Fluid

I wrote in my previous post that my SIL diagnosed with oligohydramnios. Oligohydramnios is a condition in pregnancy characterised by a deficiency of amniotic fluid.

She went to see 3 doctors and all of them have same diagnosis. All of them said that there is nothing they can do about it. However yesterday she went to see different gynea, and today My mom just called me and said that this gynea aked my SIL to immediately admit to the hospital so he can monitor her pregnancy. Her amniotic water inside her worm is getting less, so he will try to inject her additional water. I don’t know whether this process is dangerous or not. I tried to search for it in the internet, but so far I could not find any information about it.

I only found out that some have advocated the injection of fluid before delivery via amniocentesis to improve the intrauterine environment for the fetus prior to labor. The duration of the effect is unknown. Oligohydramnios is usually observed to return within 1 week. Amnioinfusion via amniocentesis has been used in the second trimester to better visualize the fetal anatomy and confirm diagnosis

Everything Goes Inside Her Mouth

My youngest daughter loves loves to put everything inside her mouth. Everthing that she can grab surely she will put it inside her mouth. I read an article about this stage. Putting things inside the mouth is actually one of key development stages and this habit is develops as soon as babied gain some hand control. Even before they get teeth, babies find it satisfying to suck. And exploring the world with their mouth helps babies to experience their environment.

The urge to put things in her mouth may also be a sign that your baby is teething. In general, most babies get their first tooth sometime around 7 months. For some it happens much earlier, while others don't cut teeth until nearly age 1. If you notice that your baby is drooling a lot or rubbing toys and other objects against her gums, it may be due to teething.


Drug Addiction

Addiction has become a very serious health issue and problem in the US and is still on the rise today. Addiction is defined as the need for a person to indulge in something that may or may not have negative consequences on the person’s physical or mental health and their social state. There are many different forms of addiction, some that are much more physically harmful than others. Treatment options, which are available in many different forms, are also in abundance in the US for people with addiction problems.

Different from the original believe, scientists found out that drug addiction is a brain disease. Although initial use might be voluntary, however, an individual with specific abnormalities in the brains will develop severe addiction to drugs. Because drug addiction is a disease, drug addict can not be cured simply by her or his will power alone. They may be not even realized that they have become a drug addict. Needle marks or bruises on the arms, legs, or bottoms of feet are a sign in identifying a drug addict. Unusual attempts to hide these areas can also be used in identifying a drug addict. Another way of identifying a drug addict is noticing a loss of interest in activities and a change in friends. A drug addict will often stop doing the things that he or she used to do in order to do drugs. This is where an intervention is needed. Intervention is more likely to be successful if it is conducted by professionals rather than by only friends or family member.

The Chapman House drug rehab is capable of performing Intervention on both adults and adolescents. As professional Interventionists, they have witnessed first hand the method of Intervention, which is 96% successful.

Drug detoxification is typically a 7-day process. The Chapman House is unique because they go above and beyond other Detox programs. Most programs offer their patients staff supervision during the initial withdrawal process. Their detox program not only offers ongoing supervision, but also the expertise of their Licensed Physician and Licensed Psychologist who specialize in addictive medicine.


Play "Jump-Jump"

My youngest daughter loves to play “jump-jump”. She loves it when people hold her to stand up and she will immediately bounce up and down. When she did that she will have a big smile on her face. Normally, I could not do it very often because my hand tired easily. My husband on the other hand can hold her longer. That is why whenever my youngest daughter saw my husband immediately she will start to crawl toward him with expectation look on her face. I read that bouncing up and down is good to develop her leg muscles. Leg muscles are important for her next milestone: Walking!

Actually, now she is able to pull himself up to a stand while holding onto something. She is even able to let go and stand without support for a second sometimes.

Up Date

Today my brother sms me and ask me what is the medical term for the water surrounding the baby in the womb since he wanted to look up in the internet. I sms him back and told him that the medical term is called amniotic fluid. After that I called him to ask the current news. He told me that he just came back from the gynea and it seemed the water is even lesser than last week. It seemed that the baby doesn’t pee at all. I felt bad for him to hear this news. I could tell that he was very upset and the doctor also could not do anything about it, he said that to inject additional amniotic fluid is very risky both for the mother and the baby. He just suggested his wife to take a total rest.

On the day before Christmas, my sister in law (my brother’s wife) went to the ER. She was 21 weeks pregnant and on that day, she fell from a stool and had some minor bleeding. The doctor in ER said she and the baby was OK, however from the ultra sound examination, the doctor said that her water or amniotic fluid is very little (oligohydramnios). Since after 20 weeks most of the water is come from baby’s ability to make urine, the doctor conduct 4D check on baby’s kidney. The result is normal. So he suggest her to take total rest and drink plenty of water (2L minimum), and hopefully the water can increase in the next check up.
