Kate Middleton leaves hospital after acute morning sickness

Kate Middleton left the King Edward VII hospital after suffering from pregnancy related acute morning sickness on Thursday. The Duchess of Cambridge spent four days under medical supervision. Kate left the hospital in the company of her husband, smiling and holding a bouquet of yellow roses, after being treated for several days for a pregnancy related condition that enhances morning sickness and can lead to dehydration and weight loss. The illness is called Hyperemesis Gravidarum and causes severe nausea and vomiting, thus requiring close medical supervision, supplementary hydration and nutrients intake. Neither Kate nor William gave any statement to the reporters waiting outside the hospital before being driving away. As of yet, there is no official statement regarding when the baby is due. However, the prince’s spokesman said that Middleton is less than 12 weeks pregnant. According to William’s office, Kate will rest and recuperate at the Kensington Palace, a royal residence found in west London. A royal spokeswoman said that Middleton is feeling better but needs rest. “Their royal highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment the duchess has received,” she added. Kate’s acute illness stirred up somewhat of a frenzy both within the British media as well as the royal family, as the pregnancy announcement wasn’t made publicly yet. Even Queen Elizabeth was taken by surprise by the news....

Kate Middleton’s illness, often associated with twins

Kate Middleton is suffering from a pregnancy related illness often associated with carrying twins. According to ABC News, the condition is a rare and acute form of morning sickness that causes weight loss and dehydration and affects 2 percent of expecting mothers. Kate’s illness is called hyperemesis gravidarum and, even though it is a torture for the mother to endure, it does not lead to pregnancy loss nor causes birth defects. Dr. Nancy Cossler, OB/GYN at the University Hospitals in Ohio, considers that the most important effect the condition determines is the severe way in which it affects the mother’s life. “Constantly feeling sick and puking is difficult,” Cossler said. Hyperemesis gravidarum can be caused by higher levels of the pregnancy hormone, hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin. Such a high level of hCG is often present for mothers who carry more than one fetus. Hence, Middleton could herself be carrying twins. However, the theory is supported by only one study that showed that women who are pregnant with twins have a 7.5 percent higher risk of developing acute morning sickness. The condition is usually diagnosed within the ninth week of pregnancy and subsides on its own sometime between the 16th to 20th week. In rare cases the hyperemesis gravidarum can be experienced for the entire pregnancy duration. According to the Britain’s Press Association, given the early stages of Middleton’s...
