Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that develops, or is first diagnosed, during pregnancy. The condition, like other forms of diabetes, involves high blood sugar levels. Often times, gestational diabetes is a temporary disorder that occurs around the second trimester of pregnancy and disappears after a woman gives birth. But women who've had gestational diabetes should be monitored closely after birth, because they are more likely to develop diabetes later in life, according to the National Institutes of Health NIH.
Taking the piss? Madrid slammed for lack of loos - The Local
By Chris Perez. Scott and Steve Leader were on their way home from a Red Sox game early Wednesday when they stumbled upon a hobo sleeping near the John F. The man told cops that when he awoke, the two men were urinating on his face and ransacking his makeshift shelter, police said. After ripping away his blankets and sleeping bag, the Leader brothers started pummeling the man, cops said. A witness told cops that the twisted siblings then walked away from the scene laughing after the beatdown.
Ever wandered around Madrid's streets on an evening and been greeted with an unpleasant whiff of urine? That could be down to the fact that the Spanish capital has only 25 public toilets to serve a permanent population of over three million and around 10 million visitors a year. There are four permanent toilets in Retiro Park that open until 9pm and a mere 25 mobile bathroom cabins that people can use for 10 cents. Demand far outstrips supply; when the bars and clubs close, the wave of people filtering out onto the street means that most - usually men - end up relieving themselves against walls and in street corners, lending the city an unsavoury stench in the early hours.
