Pregnancy Sickness and the Duchess of Cambridge

Pregnancy Professor Roger Gadsby, of Warwick Medical School, was the expert in demand this week as news broke that the Duchess of Cambridge was suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum.

Roger, who published a study on the issue last year, was quoted in a number of national newspapers and appeared on BBC News and Sky News to discuss morning sickness in more depth.

He summarised that pregnancy sickness is a “underappreciated and underresearched condition”, and pointed out that diclectin - an antihistamine and vitamin B6 combo – that is used to treat the condition quite well in the States, is not used in the UK in the same manner.
