DAY 4: Diabetes, conjoined twins and pet zebrafish

At day 4 we’re nearly half way through the event. Hope you’re all chatting, asking and voting!

Today’s highlights in the Reproduction Zone:

  • Diabetes and baby weight:

beadon3107 : does type 1 and 2 diabetes make the babies bigger or is it just one type

chriswhittle : Both type I and type II diabetics are likely to have big babies (called macrosomia). It is linked to how well the blood sugars in the mother are maintained.

  • Conjoined twins:

Why can’t there be conjoined twins that are different sexes?

  • And your very own zebrafish…

Can you buy zebrafish in pet stores?
