Have you seen an “insulin-toxic newborn”? I think you have.
Have you heard of an “insulin-toxic newborn”? You certainly
have. You simply did not realize. Consider the next
Have you seen a nine-pound newborn? If not, have you ever
heard of a nine-pound newborn? That baby was insulin-toxic.
And an insulin-toxic newborn, of necessity, was an
insulin-toxic being before birth. Is it a little confusing?
Gestational diabetes and pre-diabetes are conditions in
which a glucose tolerance test done during pregnancy reveals
raised blood sugar levels that meet the diagnostic criteria
for these conditions. Most such women deliver babies that
weigh more than the average, often weighing eight pounds or
I never order a glucose tolerance test without doing an
insulin profile. I have more than 560 insulin profiles in my
files and have not seen an exception to this so far. In an
article published in the Townsend Letter in 2009, I
presented detailed information about 236 of these insulin
profiles. Please read other articles in this series on
insulin-toxic newborns, especialy one entitled “Unborn and
Importance of the
Diagnosis of Neo-natal Insulin Toxicity
The need for ruling out the presence of neo-natal insulin
toxicity should be self-evident from the preceding comments.
In addition to the insulin status of the heavier-than-normal
babies, it would be also very valuable to know the base-line
insulin status of every baby.
What can be done for mothers of heavier-than-normal babies
to protect them from obesity, pre-diabetes, and diabetes?
What can be done to prevent these disorders in overweight
newborns? And from all complications of diabetes, such as
neuropathy, kidney failure, dialysis, dementia, heart
attacks, and blindness? I cover these crucial subjects in
this series of articles as well as in my YouTube
