Just the other day we heard news of Reality TV's mother of 18, pregnant with 19, and her dealing with premature labor.
Certainly there has been a lot of buzz about this issue, especially references to birth control. Oral contraceptives or estrogen replacement therapy can increase the risk of gallstones.
People magazine has reported that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar of Arkansas have welcomed Duggar Baby #19 to the family. Josie Brooklyn, weighted 1 lb. 6 oz when she was born at 6:27 p.m. Thursday at University of Arkansas, People reported.
The reality TV show couple star in the TLC reality show "18 Kids & Counting."
TMZ reported the girl was born after her mother -- who was recently treated for gallstones -- underwent an emergency C-Section. Both mother and baby are reporting stable.
While many may criticize the conservative Baptist couple for their public stance against birth control, the Duggar's believe the children are blessings from God. They recently discussed this and other beliefs with Religion News Service.
In the interview, which ranges from Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar's regular "date nights," to strangers' reactions to the large family, Michelle is quotes as saying "Every family has to do what they feel they’re called to do. We’re not out there telling people this is the way everybody else needs to live, because by all means, this is not for everyone. God wouldn’t give everybody 19 children. We realize that there’s a different calling for different people. We’re not about to judge anybody and tell them what they ought to do. That same kindness can be extended both directions."What NHN would like to highlight is Michelle's gall stones.
A common health issue that can be a problem for women, especially after child birth, and more frequently as women close in on the menopausal years. Oral contraceptives or estrogen replacement therapy can increase the risk of gallstones.
What is commonly ignored in mainstream medicine is that childbirth increases your risk for gall stones, and later for elevated cholesterol along with fat digestion difficulties, and the relationship of these issues to thyroid imbalance.
What we wish is for those in regular every day health care to look for cause rather than booking a cholecystectomy.
