Quotes

"It was like combining the best of both worlds and offering a two-pronged attack on the bacteria" says senior author Dr Jenny Kim, professor of clinical medicine at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
"Growing obesity is something we all need to face," says Dr Hussey in a statement. "It is a major factor in many chronic health conditions, from type 2 diabetes to cardiovascular disease. It costs the Welsh NHS £73 million a year."
Reacting to the findings in an emailed statement, Dr Richard Elliott, Diabetes UK research communications manager says: "Gestational diabetes is a serious condition and can lead to birth complications if not identified and managed carefully."
Professor Nicolaides told the programme: "We have demonstrated through extensive research that you can identify more than 90% of those cases from the 12-week assessment.” He explained, “We can easily avoid them and we can do so through very simple adjustments in the way we deliver antenatal care."
