Teenage offspring of mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have increased adiposity and an adverse cardiometabolic profile, according to a study published online Oct. 16 in Diabetes Care

Louise G. Grunnet, Ph.D., from Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark, and colleagues compared body composition and associated cardiometabolic traits among 561 9- to 16-year-old offspring of mothers with GDM and 597 control offspring.

Medical staff are less likely to resuscitate newborns than they are children and adults, according to a new study.

A team of researchers at l’Université de Montréal studied the approach of the medical staff of various Montreal hospitals practising resuscitation manoeuvres on patients of different ages. The study focused on scenarios involving the arrival of several patients at the same time in the emergency room when there was only one doctor present.

The aim was to find out who would be a priority for staff. A questionnaire revealed that when confronted with different scenarios of patients in critical condition, medical staff were more likely to save adults and children than newborns.

Perdebatan tentang apa yang memengaruhi alergi makanan berkembang pada anak-anak telah mengalami banyak perubahan sepanjang tahun. Seiring dengannya, muncul pula berbagai rekomendasi dari para ahli tentang kapan harus mengenalkan alergen umum.

Misalnya saja soal alergi kacang. Sejak lama, orang tua disarankan untuk menghindari pemberian kacang pada balita.

Namun, rekomendasi itu berubah sejak American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) merekomendasikan orang tua untuk memperkenalkan kacang dalam asupan anak sebelum ia berusia satu tahun.
