SO RARE: BABY BORN STILL INSIDE AMNIOTIC SAC

Silas Johnson recently entered the world through emergency cesarean section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, but what makes his case truly extraordinary is that he was born at 26 weeks with his amniotic sac still perfectly intact around him, holding the placenta and umbilical cord as well, reports KHON2.

"It was a moment that really did, even though it's a cliche, [make us catch] our breath," the doctor who delivered him says. "It really felt like a moment of awe." Mom Chelsea Philips had no idea until her mom showed her a picture later.

"He was kind of in a fetal position and you could see like his arms and his legs curled up," she says. "It was actually really cool to see, and when I heard that was actually really rare, I was like, oh my gosh, you're a special little baby." In fact, it's in just 1 in 80,000 births or so that the thin, tough membrane still covers part of a newborn's body, and it's typically the head, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

But being born "en caul," as it's called, where the entire body is still surrounded by the sac (with the placenta providing oxygen), is a true medical rarity most OB-GYNs will never see.

The doctor "was in awe when the baby just popped out completely enclosed," per a Cedars-Sinai statement. "They had just a short amount of time to get the baby out of the sac and ... he had to puncture the sac with his fingers."

Silas, now nearly 3 months old, is healthy and left the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit part of the Maxine Dunitz Children's Health Center in mid-February. According to Cedars-Sinai, he is at home with his mom and doing great.

(One girl was born in China last year at 23 weeks.)

IF YOU HAVE A HISTROY OF HEART PROBLEM IN YOUR FAMILY, OR IF YOU SIMPLY WANT TO WARD OFF HEART PROBLEM READ THIS.

Your Heart Will Go Nuts for Peanuts.
whfoods.com

Peanuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the type of fat that is emphasized in the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet. Studies of diets with a special emphasis on peanuts have shown that this little legume is a big ally for a healthy heart. In one such randomized, double-blind, cross-over study involving 22 subjects, a high monounsaturated diet that emphasized peanuts and peanut butter decreased cardiovascular disease risk by an estimated 21% compared to the average American diet.

In addition to their monounsaturated fat content, peanuts feature an array of other nutrients that, in numerous studies, have been shown to promote heart health. Peanuts are good sources of vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese. In addition, peanuts provide resveratrol, the phenolic antioxidant also found in red grapes and red wine that is thought to be responsible for the French paradox: the fact that in France, people consume a diet that is not low in fat, but have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease compared to the U.S. With all of the important nutrients provided by nuts like peanuts, it is no wonder that numerous research studies, including the Nurses' Health Study that involved over 86,000 women, have found that frequent nut consumption is related to reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

DIABETES CAN AFFECT YOUR EYES, KIDNEY, NERVES, GUM & TEETH AND YOUR HEART AND BLOOD VESSLES.

The Risks and Complications of Uncontrolled Diabetes
  
If not controlled, diabetes can put you at risk for a host of complications that can affect nearly every organ in the body. They include:

    The heart and blood vessels
    The eyes
    The kidneys
    The nerves
    The gums and teeth

Heart Disease, Blood Vessel Disease, and Diabetes

Heart disease and blood vessel disease are the biggest complications that people with uncontrolled diabetes face. Approximately 71% of adults with diabetes also have high blood pressure or take medication to reduce blood pressure and 65% have high cholesterol or take medication to treat it. 

Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 1.7 times higher than adults without diabetes.The risk for stroke is 1.5 times higher .

Many studies show that controlling diabetes can prevent or stop the progression of heart and blood vessel disease.

Blood vessel damage or nerve damage (see below) may also lead to foot problems that can lead to amputations. More than 60% of leg and foot amputations not related to an injury are due to diabetes.
Diabetes and the Eyes

Diabetes is the leading cause of new blindness in the U.S. in adults ages 20-74. It can cause a number of eye problems, some of which can lead to blindness if not addressed. The eye disorders include:

    Glaucoma
    Cataracts
    Diabetic retinopathy

Studies show that regular eye exams and timely treatment of diabetes-related eye problems could prevent up to 90% of diabetes-related blindness.
Kidney Disease and Diabetes

Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure in adults in the U.S., accounting for 44% of new cases. Drugs that lower blood pressure (even if you don't have high blood pressure) can lower risk of kidney failure by 33%.
Diabetes and Your Nerves

Over time, high blood sugar levels can harm the nerves. This can lead to loss of sensation or feeling (usually starting in the toes) or pain and burning of the feet. Approximately 60%-70% of people with  diabetes have some form of nerve damage.

Diabetes-related nerve damage can also cause pain in the legs, arms, and hands, and can cause problems with digestion, going to the bathroom, or having sex.

CAN A PENIS GET A FRACTURE? OH YES, TRAUMA CAN OCCUR DURING AN ERRECTION

Is it possible to fracture your penis?
Answers from Erik P. Castle, M.D.
Mayo Clinic

Yes. A penis fracture can occur when there is trauma to the erect penis.

During an erection, the penis is engorged with blood. If the penis is bent suddenly or forcefully while it's engorged, the trauma may rupture the lining of one of the two cylinders in the penis (corpus cavernosum) responsible for erections — resulting in a penis fracture. The trauma is usually related to aggressive or acrobatic sexual intercourse or, in some cases, aggressive masturbation.

A penis fracture is a painful injury that's often accompanied by an audible cracking sound, followed immediately by dark bruising of the penis due to blood escaping the cylinder. In some cases the tube that drains urine from the body (urethra) may be damaged as well, and blood may be visible at the urinary opening of the penis.

A penis fracture requires urgent medical attention. A penis fracture can usually be diagnosed with a physical exam, and prompt surgical repair is typically recommended. Left untreated, a penis fracture may result in deformity of the penis or the inability to have or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction).

UNBELIEVABLE! MEET A MAN WHO WAS BORN WITH TWO PENISES 18+ (VIEWERS DISCRETION)

He explained that he was born with a condition known as “diphallia” , it is not a genetic condition and also the two penises are very functional,  each capable of operating independently from the other . When he was asked about how people react to his condition; he answered by saying it all varies from who it is, he claims to get different reactions some would be like: ‘wow’,’that’s fake’ and some people would be totally freaked out and would call me insulting names. Most people are pretty curious but I don’t have casual sex anymore, I stopped a few years back.

You can read some of the questions he was asked and their answers below:

Q:Have you ever had any special reaction from a doctor with this?

A:Yeah, one grabbed like five others in the building. That was the last time my mom let anyone examine me for any reason besides personal check-ups. She said “my son is not a freak show” and slapped one of them. lol

Q:Are there any possible complications you have to watch for?

A:My prostate gets inflamed if I dont ejaculate enough. I’m probably the only guy with a legit reason to orgasm at least once every day or two days. My prostate gets stimulation from both cocks and creates a lot of seminal fluid. So when i cum it has to be squeezed every few days to get all the excess out. otherwise it feels bloated and painful.

PROCTALGIA FUGAS SERIOUS? A PAIN IN YOUR BUTT. IT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED TO YOU.


Is Proctalgia Fugax serious?

No. Sufferers should be confident that the pain is not an indication of something serious. Also, this condition does not increase the risk of colon cancer, colitis, hemorrhoids, anal fissures or other bowel disorders. It is simply a muscle cramp in the wrong place at the wrong time.

What treatment is available?

There is no cure. The attacks are too short for any medical therapy to be effective. Although, there have been some reported successes using an asthma inhaler called salbutamol to abort prolonged episodes. There is no surgical procedure that has been shown to be effective. The most common therapy is simply pushing on the anal area. This may be done manually or by straddling the edge of a bathtub. Soaking in a warm bath may help, but usually the pain begins to subside before the bathtub is filled.

How can one prevent future attacks?

Sadly there is no way to reliably prevent further attacks. Some doctors feel that a high fiber diet and plenty of fluids helps keep the stools soft and prevents spasm. Often, a fiber supplement such as Metamucil or Citrucel is recommended. The best plan is to let your doctor rule out any other serious disorders and be happy that nothing more important was found.
