Why should diabetes during pregnancy not be neglected?
Hormonal changes during pregnancy and impaired glucose tolerance increases the risk of Gestational Diabetes. This occurs in about 9% of all pregnancies.
Moms who are overweight before becoming pregnant; those who've had a family history of diabetes; those who have given birth to a stillborn baby before and moms who have given birth to a baby of over 9 pounds before must be extra careful.
Diabetes can affect the developing fetus throughout the pregnancy. However, don't worry! With proper treatment, you can deliver a healthy baby despite having diabetes.
Small changes in your lifestyle can go a long way in controlling your diabetes. Diet also plays an important role in managing diabetes during pregnancy.
Don't worry! You’re experiencing the most beautiful 9 months of your life and Dr. Girija is here to guide you!
