|Original uncertainty examples
|Is there a cure? ~ Will there ever be a cure for this 'HG'? ~ is there not a surgical way or medical way to eradicate this reaction? ~ By what treatment can HG be totally cured? ~ This means de vomitting, the nausea, lack of feeling hungry, etc. Given the 2 genes (contributing to appetite and placenta) which were recently found to be connected with the root causes of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, how can one reduce his / her chances of acquiring this sickness or cure it in an earlier stage than 20 weeks plus or the entire pregnancy? Please try to find a cure!!
