  • High Homocysteine . . . A Risk to Your Heart

    In Health Tips On 12 October 2013

    High Homocysteine . . . A Risk to Your Heart Homocysteine is \"an amino acid.\" The production of homocysteine in the body is part of a complex system related to the metabolism of dietary protein. When the body metabolises the amino acid methionine, homocysteine -- another kind of amino acid -- is formed as a product of this process. Normally, most of the homocysteine is recycled as other amino acids. However, the body needs sufficient amounts of dietary vitamin B12 and folate to do this.  Without enough B12 and folate in the diet, the recycling process becomes faulty, causing homocysteine levels in the blood to rise. Elevated blood levels of total homocysteine (tHcy) often indicate that you\'re not getting enough folate or B12 from food or supplements. The optimal amount of these nutrients varies considerably from person to person. However, other factors, such as lack of certain enzymes or a genetic predisposition to high levels of homocysteine, also can be at fault. In an observational study it is found a beneficial effect of whole-grain, refined-grain, and dairy products on serum homocysteine concentrations in an adolescent population. homocysteine levels were greater in poultry intakes. no relation was found with intakes of fruit, vegetables, or red or processed meat.

    In MOM SPECIAL On 25 October 2013

    How can I help my baby bond with me? Bonding with your baby is one of the great joys of parenthood, but it isn\'t always immediate. Not only are you recovering from giving birth, but your newborn is getting used to the being out in the world. Don\'t fret if things feel a little bumpy at first. Here\'s how to start the bonding process: Spend time skin-to-skin. Both you and your partner should hold your infant close to your chest while feeding or just cuddling. You can also stoke or gently massage your little one. Talk baby talk. Coo, babble, sing, and talk to your newborn -- she loves the sound of your voice. Look in your baby\'s eyes and smile. In time, she will start to mimic your expressions.
