Re: [IPp] complications while pregnant?
In the context of the quote you posted regarding stress on the fetus
and chronic disease, I believe that the study was refering to adult
onset diabetes, ie Type 2. You should find the original study that
made that claim - my memory of it was that it was only one study last
year and it was very theoretical. I have never heard of any rigorous
studies investigating hyperemesis and Type 1 or other autoimmune
You also say that the quoted text brings up questions for you... like what?
