The University of Sydney researchers have said that women and their unborn babies are at more risk by one fat or the other. Though, as per reports, it is already known that fats can harm pregnant mothers and yet-to-be-born babies.
Published in Obstetric Medicine, the first study had coincided with World Health Organization figures, claiming that almost 50% pregnant women in Australia are obese or overweight. It had revealed that the condition is closely linked to risks of complications, varying in woman to woman, like diabetes or hypertension or even need for a caesarean section.
The new study published in the Australian New Zealand Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology has been a bit different in terms of results. It has pointed that the distribution of fat in the body decides the level of health risks. The team from Sydney Medical School Nepean has also told that the type of fat can be easily and precisely measured by ultrasound.
It is being said that this would help in determining biggest health risks and therefore, would save lives of expectant mothers and unborn babies. "Critically this research will be useful for judging the dangers for overweight or obese pregnant mothers. The results could be helpful in measuring the success of strategies to address obesity", said Professor Ralph Nanan.
