Morning Sickness

What Causes Morning Sickness?

Morning sickness can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'needs attention' to 'very serious'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose morning sickness, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "morning sickness" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Dehydration
  • Adrenal Fatigue

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
low systolic blood pressure
early term miscarriage
excessive thirst
severe vision disturbances
dark urine color
low alcohol consumption
red palms/fingertips
high diastolic blood pressure
adrenal insufficiency
severe afternoon/evening fatigue
hot flashes during period
low energy/stamina
... and more than 70 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of morning sickness:
Cause Probability Status
Dehydration 94% Confirm
Adrenal Fatigue 61% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate having been pregnant but not now, being pregnant with first child or being pregnant again, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Did you experience Morning Sickness during pregnancy?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Minor
→ Moderate
→ Serious
→ Severe
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate morning sickness, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:

Studies have demonstrated a relationship between nausea in pregnancy and impaired liver function.  The liver is responsible for filtering toxins from the blood and dehydration causes the blood to become thicker, making it harder for the liver to do its job.  Impaired liver function and the resulting buildup of toxins in the blood can cause nausea and morning sickness.
