medicOvarian cancer commonly begins as a cyst made up of cancerous cells. As cancer progresses, the dangerous effects spread to other parts of the body with the cancerous cells. Medical professionals have many detection techniques in place to determine if a female has ovarian cancer, but many of these methods are unreliable. Doctors warn that “there are currently no screening tests for it that are sensitive enough to reliably screen it without a high number of inaccurate results” [1]

A commonly used test is known as the CA-125 test, an advanced blood test that measures the levels of the CA-125 protein. This test is not a reliable screening test because CA-125 can be elevated from other common conditions; however, it is a helpful “diagnostic tool in postmenopausal women” [2]. In numerous cases, even though ovarian cancer was present, it was seen that the CA-125 blood test was not elevated enough. This is why the FDA recently issued a warning that stated that “women should not rely on these screening [tests] to make health or treatment decisions” [1].

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is an overwhelming complication some women may face during a pregnancy where the body does not produce enough insulin to deal with a high blood sugar level. GDM is one of the most common conditions affecting pregnant women, affecting approximately 1 in 10 expectant women [1]. Since rates of GDM is higher in overweight women, this condition has been on the rise alongside obesity. However, if this condition is diagnosed and treated early, a healthy pregnancy can be ensured.

To understand diabetes, in general, is to understand the function of the hormone insulin. Insulin regulates the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and helps transform sugar into energy. Diabetes usually occurs when there is insufficient insulin produced which causes high levels of glucose in the bloodstream.

For people with GDM, insulin is usually blocked by hormones found in the placenta.

Research has shown women over the age of 35, who have a family history, or are overweight are more prone to exhibit GDM [1]. Being overweight is the main factor because the extra mass prohibits insulin’s ability to function in keeping blood sugar levels up to par.
