How can Nipple Conditioning Cream help you?

Nursing your new baby should be a wonderful and precious experience – not only for feeding but also for bonding.

For many new mothers, the first few days of breastfeeding may cause the nipples to become sensitive and tender. This is quite normal and will generally resolve on its own within a few days.

However, for some women, the problem may be worse and sore, cracked and even bleeding nipples can occur. These difficulties may obviously make breastfeeding painful and unpleasant and can rob the mother of the joy of nursing her baby.

The most common cause of painful and cracked nipples is a problem with positioning and although this is theoretically preventable, it is very common as few mothers perfect the art of breastfeeding immediately. Also, once the damage has occurred, healing may be delayed and difficult, and breastfeeding painful.

Nipple Conditioning Cream has been specially formulated for nursing moms’ nipples. This cream will naturally condition the skin, prevent damage and infection and encourage healing of any cracks in the nipple, allowing breastfeeding to be a pleasant and joyous experience once again.

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that afflicts 5% of the worlds population. Diabetics face significant long-term disabilities and complications if they dont keep their blood glucose under control. Because of the need to diagnose, treat and control this chronic condition researchers have discovered several short term and long term methods of monitoring blood sugar as well as testing for the condition.

Some physicians follow specific recommendations to test for diabetes in their general patient population. Those who are over 45 and obese should be tested and those younger than 45 and obese should be considered.

Doctors will use several different tests, combine the results of those tests, and determine if a person has diabetes. The first, and simplest test is the fasting blood sugar test. A small blood sample will be taken at the lab after the patient has had nothing to eat or drink after midnight. Normal blood sugar is between 70-110; considered borderline to 135 and high over 140.
