Protocol for induced oral hyperglycemia

You must have a medical prescription to use this service.

You must fast for a period of 8 hours before sampling / you can continue to drink water.

The aim of this test is to measure the rate of change in blood sugar levels after ingesting glucose. It can be used to detect type 2 diabetes, glucose intolerance or gestational diabetes in pregnant women. Here’s how the test works:

1
Step 1

When you arrive at your appointment, an initial fasting blood sample will be taken. You will then have 10 minutes to drink a sugar solution.

2
Step 2

You must then wait in a room for 1 to 2 hours, depending on your prescription. We advise you to bring a book or something to keep yourself occupied, as it won't be possible to go home. We have wifi.

3
Step 3

After waiting, we will take another blood sample and send it to the laboratory at Enfant-Jésus Hospital for analysis. The results will be sent directly to your doctor.

Blood pregnancy test

You must have a medical prescription to use this service.

Why is an HCG hormone test necessary?

Dosage qualitative

It is used either to confirm the pregnancy, or to ensure that the pregnancy is progressing smoothly. Only the HCG assay can confirm or rule out pregnancy and accurately date the onset of pregnancy.

Dosage quantitative

Given that in a normal pregnancy, beta-HCG hormone levels double every 48 hours, quantifying hormone levels helps to detect whether there is a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy or a multiple pregnancy. If the HCG level is higher than normally expected, it will be necessary to combine these results with other markers to determine whether this is a case of trisomy 21.

Consultation for nausea and vomiting

Nausea and vomiting are often a normal part of pregnancy, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with them. In some cases, the intensity of nausea and vomiting requires medication. It is therefore essential to discuss the matter with a health professional.

Nausea and vomiting consultations are designed to help you regain a good quality of life. Our nurse clinician can prescribe a safe medication and advise you on the best habits to take to relieve this discomfort.

If you suffer from extreme nausea and vomiting and have lost more than 5% of your body weight, consult a doctor immediately.

Blood and urine sampling for Routine 1 and 2

You must have a medical prescription to use this service.

Our service complements the doctor’s. That being said, why take blood and urine tests between the 10th and 13th weeks and between the 26th and 28th weeks? Each routine is different, depending on your state of health and your history. In general, here’s what the doctor is interested in knowing:

Antifungal treatment for babies and nursing mothers

The muguet

Caused by the candida albicans fungus, this mycosis affects the mucous membranes and is most frequently observed in infants.

How to recognize it? White spots or patches form on the tongue and inside the baby’s cheeks and lips, which do not disappear when rubbed. If left untreated, the baby’s intestinal flora can become unbalanced, leading to diarrhea.

Treatment is by oral solution using a pipette or dropper.

The nipple candidiasis

Caused by the candida albicans fungus, transmitted from the baby’s mouth to the nipple and milk ducts of the breastfeeding mother.

How to recognize it? Women with nipple candidiasis experience sharp, needle-like pain when breastfeeding.

Treatment is by oral solution, using a pipette or dropper which is placed in the baby’s mouth before breast-feeding.

The ringworm

Caused by the fungus dermatophytes, this mycosis can affect all parts of a baby’s body, from scalp to feet.

How to recognize it? Small, rounded red spots appear, grow and turn white or gray. The skin may eventually peel and the itching is intense. On the scalp, the hair breaks off between 2 and 3 mm.

Treatment is with an antifungal agent in the form of shampoo, powder, cream or lotion.

The pityriasis versicolor

Caused by the Malassezia fungus, this mycosis affects the mucous membranes and is most frequently observed in infants.

How to recognize it? It appears as multiple small spots on the body. Their colors vary between pink, beige, yellow and brown. Spots often turn white on sun-pigmented skin.

Treatment is with an antifungal agent in cream or lotion form.

The Genital and gluteal candidiasis

It can be confused with diaper rash caused by dirty diapers. The difference between the two is that an unmedicated cream applied to the redness will be ineffective against the candida albicans fungus. In most cases, the fungus will have touched the mouth (thrush) and travelled down the digestive tract, eventually touching the buttocks and genitals.

How to recognize it? The buttocks are red with a pustular appearance. The anus and genitals may be swollen.

Treatment is with an antifungal agent in cream or lotion form.

Our clinician can treat mycoses caused by the candida albicans fungus, including thrush, nipple candidiasis, and candidiasis of the buttocks and genitals. Make an appointment today and be taken care of the same day.
