WHAT IS HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM?
Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is defined as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
Celebrities who have been open about their own battles with HG include:
- The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton
- Kim kardashian
- Kourtney kardashian
- Debra Messing
- Kelly clarkson
- Tia Mowry
- Tori spelling
- Amy schumer
It affects up to 2% of pregnant women.
Symptoms of HG usually appear between the fourth and sixth week and peak between 9 and 13 weeks.
Up to 20 percent of people with the condition show symptoms by the 14th to the 20th week, however, most have relief in later stages.
Unlike morning sickness, which affects up to 80 percent of pregnant women, HG causes severe dehydration and prevents people with it from not eating.
Other symptoms include:
- Lose at least 5% of your weight before pregnancy
- Reduced urination
- Extreme fatigue
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Rapid heart rate
Some cases of HG require hospitalization where women can receive IV fluids and nutrition.
The cause of HG was thought to be hormonal, however, research suggests it could be due to genetic variations.
