Everybody was sad to hear about the worries concerning Janet Jackson’s pregnancy. Apparently she is close to putting on almost 100 lbs, which caused some struggles with the baby. A top dietician working in LA also declared that such a weight gain might represent a serious threat both for Janet’s health and the baby’s.
The news was right from the start a surprise for everybody. Many didn’t even believe that Jackson would still choose to have a baby at the age of 49. Of course, it all seemed wonderful, especially if this is what she wanted, but the truth is that at such an age a pregnancy is far from being an easy task for many women. Because of the age there are lots of health risks and complications that might appear.

As it seems, now the singer is consigned to bed rest since her weight is approaching 100 lbs after just a couple of months into the pregnancy. Lisa DeFazio, a top dietician, declared that this is not at all good news for her.
Lisa explained in a discussion that excessive weight when pregnant might be the cause for lots of health risks. From this a person can even develop gestational diabetes, which would mean that the baby will be born overweight. Also, the baby might have issues with the blood sugar levels on birth and it might even be too big to be born naturally. But of course there are other issues related to high blood pressure, back and joint problems because of all the weight, the pressure placed on her heart and water retention, not to mention the fact that her kidneys have to work harder under these circumstances.
However, it seems that a professional dietician can help Janet overcome all these issues and give her an appropriate diet where she would follow the right amount of calories a day.
