Diabetes and Pregnancy Gestational Diabetes U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention What is gestational diabetes? Gestational (jes-stay-shuh-nal) diabetes is diabetes that a woman can develop during pregnancy. When you have diabetes, your body cannot use the sugars and starches (carbohydrates) it takes in as food to make energy. As a result, your body collects extra sugar in your blood. We don’t know all the causes of gestational diabetes. Some—but not all—women with gestational diabetes are overweight before getting pregnant or have diabetes in the family. From 1 in 50 to 1 in 20 pregnant women has gestational diabetes. It is more common in Native American, Alaskan Native, Hispanic, Asian, and Black women, but it is found in White women, too. Gestational diabetes can be controlled. Work with your doctor to make a plan to keep your blood sugar in control. (See pages 7 and 8 for upper and lower levels.) Following this plan can help you have a healthy pregnancy and baby. It also can help you and your baby stay healthy after...

Food Management and Diabetes Food Management and Diabetes TEACHING OBJECTIVES: 1. Present the principles of food management related to diabetes. 2. Explain the significance of carbohydrates (carbs) in diabetes management. 3. Discuss types of meal planning approaches including carb counting. H. Peter Chase, MD Gail Spiegel, MS, RD, CDE Food (mainly carbohydrate [“carb”]) is one of the major influences on blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. As discussed in Chapter 2, the body (particularly the liver) also makes sugar (internal sugar), which adds to the blood sugar. Other sugars (external sugars) come from the food we eat. Recommendations for the use of sugars for people with diabetes have changed. It has gone from avoidance to allowing sugar within the context of a healthy meal plan. As discussed in Chapter 11, the right amount and types of food are essential for normal growth and health. TYPE 1 (INSULINDEPENDENT) DIABETES CANNOT BE TREATED WITH DIET ALONE. In contrast, type 2 diabetes can sometimes be treated with diet and exercise alone. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Learners (parents, child, relative or self) will be able to: 1. List three objectives of food management. 2. Describe examples of carbohydrate (carb) containing foods and their effect on blood sugar levels. 3. Explain the type of food plan you will be using.

Over the past five years, 3A has continued to challenge itself to become one of the premiere toy companies in the world. In 2008 we started with just a single figure with an edition of only 50 pieces and since that time we’ve created an extensive series of 1/6th and 1/12th collectible figures based on the creations of 3A Co-founder Ashley Wood. His worlds of World War Robot, Popbot and Adventure Kartel have offered us opportunities to explore innovations in sculpting, paint application and tailored clothing that have garnered 3A a passionate and loyal fanbase of collectors from around the world. Along the way we have worked with great companies such as Valve, Marvel, Konami, 343 Studios, Capcom - bringing their stunning virtual worlds to life in physical form. With this inaugural issue of Lookbook 3A, we are proud to showcase our latest figure from Valve’s award-winning series of games - Team Fortress 2. Anyone that knows 3A knows that we love robots, so after creating 1/6th scale versions of the Atlas and P-body robots from Portal 2 earlier this year, how could we say no when the Robot Heavy came calling?

Each figure also comes with The Heavy signature minigun weapon. The Robot Heavy will be offered for sale first at the 3A online store - Bambalandstore.com and later in the year at other selected...
