Important things that you should know about vitamin D

Important things that you should know about vitamin D

In this article we will talk about facts that everyone should know about vitamin D. Taking Vitamin D should be only after measuring it contain in the blood and the doses should be prescribed only by your doctor.

Pons Medical Research is a leading surrogacy provider in Ukraine. We recommend consumption of Vitamins should only be under the guidance of fertility specialist. Pons Medical Research have a good database of surrogate mothers, who meet all the Surrogate Mother Qualifications. It is a necessary for all the aspiring surrogate mothers to comply with the Surrogate Qualifications.

Let’s start with the main vitamin, the level of which you need to know if you have problems with weight severe food dependence, hormonal problems, allergies, lower immunity and other. VITAMIN D is the answer. VITAMIN D becomes particularly important during the pregnancy.
1. We recommend you to do the test for vitamin D. Norms of the Ukrainian association of endocrinologists. * <10 ng / ml – a pronounced deficit; * <20 – deficiency; * 20-30 – insufficiency; * 30-100 – adequate level (target values when correcting the deficit of vit.D – 30-60); *> 150 – a toxic effect is possible.
2. Do not be in a hurry to take vitamin D preparations. Determination of the dose of the preparation is individual and it depends on the genotype.
The second thing that needs to be done is a genetic test for the assimilation of vitamin D.

There are 2 types of genes:

-One DBP is responsible for the transfer of vitamin D.
-Other VDR is responsible for the activity of vitamin D recipient receptors.

If a person has a little amount of receptors, then delivering of vitamin D, large doses of 5000-1000 U, is needed during 2-3 months. If there are many receptors, but the DBP gene-transporter is damaged, then maintenance medium doses of 2000-3000 U are sufficient during 2 months. If the gene-carrier of DBP is damaged and there are few receptors, then high doses of vitamin D need to be taken for a long-term period. When the receptors and the carrier are normal or the changes are insignificant, it is enough to include in the diet products with richer vitamin D content and whenever possible to take sunbaths.

Remember that sunscreens block vitamin D. Depending on the place of residence, a person should be in the sun from 12 to 30 minutes with 50% of the body open. If there is no such opportunity every day, then we must compensate for NUTRITION.

It is now “fashionable” to prescribe to everyone a large dose of vitamin D, which can be dangerous. In a situation when receptors are normal, the big doses of Vitamin D can accumulate and render toxic effect and will have bad influence on the liver. There will be allergies, cholesterol and obesity. When you know the level of vitamin D and digestibility, you can safely prescribe drugs and dosage.

And now the experts are concerned and worried that we’re passing an epidemic of Vitamin D deficiency down to the future generations. Studies have shown that Vitamin D deficiency may imprint on an infant for the rest of its life. Infants that are deficient at birth can remain Vitamin D deficient for the first several months after birth, which may put them at risk of developing many chronic diseases much later in life.

How to save your youth and make it longer

How to save your youth and make it longer

The good nutrition and the limited sugar intake will save your youth and will help you to keep yourself in goodshape for long.

Pons Medical Research is a leading surrogacy provider in Ukraine with the best pediatricians; we understand Dietary Needs of a Pregnant Woman and needs of Nutrition during Pregnancy.

How does the age affect the metabolism? Are there any other ways to influence on it?

1) It’s not up to the calories, it’s up to the hormones.
Very often we can hear: “I used to eat cakes every night, but my stomach is always flat in the morning”. Everything you have eaten before was actively metabolized, but it changes as you get older.

The activity of some hormones decreases with age. There are two critical periods:
-After 30-32 years, the activity of sex hormones can decrease fourfold.
-After 45 years, it decreases from six to eight-fold.

The sooner you start to change eating behavior, the better. Remember, that your body can accumulate an experience of its wrong behavior because of your destructive habits. And some day your brain will stop to generate necessary quantities of important fat-burning hormones – endorphin, dopamine and serotonin. Changes in dietary patterns might reduce not only your emotional background and make you more happy and satisfied, but to make you younger and thinner. You will never feel sleepy or tired and your eyes will never hurt. Eating healthy you press the button of youth. Choosing an active lifestyle you change your hormonal balance. For example, when you start to dance, dopamine is produced. And endorphin is produced during crouching or stretching.

The main thing is that all these hormones depend on our activity.

When something unexpected and pleasant for us happens, serotonin increase and it could go on for the whole week. We lose our weight when we are in love because of hormones in our blood. It is necessary to understand how our bodies work at least owing to the possibility of using this knowledge for our health and figures. So, think about yourself at 20 years old and try to reproduce that feeling again.
2) All your happiness in food. Unfortunately, some people from adult generation prefer food instead of fun. What to do?
-Romance and passion in a pair
3) The last decrease in the amount of protein. With age, many people complain about the lack of appetite (for protein, not for sugar).
-This is due to a general decrease in metabolic reactions.
-Symptoms: a little protein, there is no satiety, a decrease in the activity of hormones, no fat burning.

The sugar as a main enemy of society

  1. Consumption of excessive amounts of sweets and products with a high glycemic index causes wrinkles!

British Journal of Dermatology writes that the consumption of sugar triggers a process of glycation, in which sugars are attached to proteins and form harmful molecules called “final glycation products.” They destroy the brain and damage the proteins collagen and elastin, which maintain the elasticity and density of the skin. The more sugar you consume, the more you destroy these proteins and aggravate wrinkles on your face.

Therefore, when you go to kill the fillers one more time, or use handfuls of collagen, work on the main link-remove a large amount of refined sugar from the diet. But even for fruit-dried fruit, you need to know the measure.

  1. “Final glycation products” are formed when eating food heated more than 120 degrees. Fried meat, potatoes, pies and desserts, grill including. The golden crust is the “final glycation products”. The most useful cooking methods: steaming, stewing and languishing. Fried food is not a daily meal, do not eat fried food more than 1-2 times a week.
  2. It is recommended to give the level of vitamins of group B to all women over 40-45 years.
    These vitamins are synthesized by the intestinal microflora. If you eat a lot of sugar, the quality of the microflora worsens (yeast reproduce) and there is no synthesis of such important vitamins.
  3. “Final glycation products” provoke inflammation in the vessels. Ultimately, this is the risk of strokes. Remind parents with arterial hypertension about the complete elimination of added sugar. No medicine will work if you provoke oxidative stress throughout the body.

The Uterus: ageing, abnormalities and new biological insights

The Uterus: ageing, abnormalities and new biological insights

The Uterus is the main organ of the reproductive system of the woman. In this article, we will learn about the uterus, its sizes, abnormalities and changes along the life.

Pons Medical Research is a leading surrogacy provider in Ukraine.

We recommend informing your fertility specialist about any symptoms of uterus abnormality as soon as possible to have a healthy pregnancy. Pons Medical Research offers Guaranteed Pregnancy under our Guaranteed Surrogacy Program. Contact us for a free consultation on your infertility issues.


The uterus is a smooth-muscular hollow organ located in a woman’s pelvic area. In shape, the uterus resembles a pear and is mainly intended for bearing a fertilized egg during pregnancy. The weight of the uterus of a nulliparous woman is about 50 g (for nulliparous – from 30 to 50 g, for those giving birth – from 80 to 100 g), the length is 7 to 8 cm, and the largest width is about 5 cm. Owing to the elastic walls, the uterus can grow to 32 cm in height and 20 cm in width, sustaining a fruit weighing up to 5 kg. During the menopause the size of the uterus decreases, atrophy of its epithelium occurs, sclerotic changes in blood vessels.

The uterus is located in the cavity of the small pelvis between the bladder and rectum. Normally it is tilted anteriorly, on both sides, it is supported by special ligaments, which do not allow it to descend and, at the same time, provide the necessary minimum of movement. Due to these ligaments, the uterus is able to react to changes in neighboring organs (for example, bladder overflow) and to take an optimal position for itself: the uterus can move back when the bladder is filled, forward with a rectum overflow, rise up during pregnancy.

The attachment of the ligaments is very complicated, and it is its nature that is the reason why it is not recommended for a pregnant woman to raise her hands high: this position of the hands leads to a strain of the ligament of the uterus, to the tension of the uterus itself and its displacement. This, in turn, can cause unnecessary displacement of the fetus during late pregnancy.

The size of the uterus is not the same in all women, but depends on:

-the number of children;
-from the presence in the anamnesis of frozen pregnancies, miscarriages or abortions;
-postoperative diseases and operations;

But nevertheless, there are frames that determine the norm size of a healthy uterus:

-when performing ultrasound, determine;
-longitudinal dimension – (= length;
-transverse dimension – (= width;
-anteroposterior size – (= thickness.

The size of the uterus changes during the woman’s life:
-with the onset of puberty;
-in the time of pregnancy;
-and in the period of postmenopause;

The newborn female uterus is about four centimeters long. By the end of the year, an involution of the organ will take place, it will decrease approximately twice and it will be the same up to 7 years of age. From the seven years-old age until the end of the period of puberty, it gradually increases and acquires normal parameters.

What is considered as normal?

For a mature woman who has not given birth, the size of the uterus is normal, if the length, including the cervix is 7-7.9 cm, the width is 3 to 3.9 cm, the anteroposterior dimension is in the range of 2 to 4.5 cm and, finally, the thickness of the uterus – from 2 to 4 cm. During the gestation period, the uterus grows naturally and can reach 32 cm in length and up to 20 cm in width;
In the postpartum period, the uterus begins to shrink at a rapid pace and returns to the previous dimensions.

The size of the uterus increases due to various pathological conditions:

-uterine myoma;
With an increase in the size of the uterus, a woman may be disturbed of such symptoms:
-belly in the lower abdomen;
-urinary incontinence;
-violations of the menstrual cycle, increased blood loss during critical days;
-increase in body weight.
If the ultrasound reveals a decrease in the size of the uterus, it is said that uterine hypoplasia starts. There are several degrees:
-hypoplasia of the uterus;
-aplasia of the uterus.
Depending on the severity of uterine hyperplasia, the following symptoms are possible:
-late onset of menstruation;
-the delay of puberty;
-reducing the libido;
-irregular cycle or absence of menstruation;
-problems with the onset and pregnancy.

Carrying out hormone replacement therapy can help increase the size of the uterus, which increases the likelihood of successful pregnancy. The only exception is aplasia of the uterus, pregnancy in this situation is possible only as a result of IVF with the transfer of the embryo to the surrogate mother.

Pons Medical Research wishes you a healthy pregnancy, full of great emotions and good health!
