IN THE NEWS: Revolutionary new blood test for pregnant mothers ‘may determine the health of small babies’ Pregnant women could soon be given a blood test to detect small babies at risk of being stillborn. One in 20 babies are starved in the womb, through a malfunction in the placenta or poor blood flow through the umbilical cord. These tiny babies are at risk of dying, or can be left with cerebral palsy, but often go undetected in low-risk healthy mothers who are currently not offered scans in the last trimester of pregnancy. However scientists at Queen Mary University of London have now found a protein the mother’s blood, called DLK1, which provides a biological read-out of their baby’s wellbeing. Dr Charalambous said: ‘Measuring DLK1 levels in the mother’s blood could be a reliable and non-invasive way of predicting whether there are likely to be complications, especially those that cause reduced nutrient supply to the baby.
CONDITION OF THE WEEK: CHIROPRACTIC TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE Doctors of chiropractic generally utilize spinal manipulation to address musculoskeletal issues. Most people think that chiropractic is only good for back and neck pain. But chiropractic can do more for a person’s wellness than just relieve pain. A recent double-blinded study compared a group of patients to see how spinal manipulation impacted their blood pressure. The researchers found that “specific thoracic spinal manipulations affected three measures: blood pressure, pulse rate, and changes in hypertension (high blood pressure) classification only in the active treatment group.” If you are one of many people looking to reduce your blood pressure, you may want to add chiropractic care to exercise and healthy eating. The combination will get healthier faster.
