Gestational Diabetes - 2 Common Risk Factors

Gestational Diabetes - 2 Common Risk Factors

Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes where the blood sugar levels of the body increase during pregnancy. When you are expecting, your body is more repellent to insulin so that a larger amount of glucose is manufactured for the baby’s nourishment. However, this excess blood glucose can build up within the body which causes gestational diabetes. This can lead to health problems for both the mother and the baby. At the end of the gestational period i.e. once the baby is delivered, blood sugar reduces to normal.

When are you at a risk for gestational diabetes?

  1. Gestational diabetes can also be hereditary. If a family member or a relative has diabetes, you are more likely to develop gestational diabetes.

  2. If you are overweight, you are more susceptible to developing gestational diabetes.

What causes gestational diabetes?

During pregnancy, the placenta connects your baby to the blood supply. This produces other hormones which reduce the levels of insulin. This increases the level of blood sugar in your blood. As your baby develops, your body manufactures more of such hormones which block your insulin levels leading to gestational diabetes. This usually occurs from the 20th week of your pregnancy.

Complications:

  1. Increase in Birth Weight – Extra glucose crosses through the placenta which instigates the baby’s pancreas to manufacture more insulin. This can make your baby very large. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for the baby to pass through the birth canal during childbirth as a result.

  2. Premature Birth and Respiratory Diseases – High blood sugar may increase the risk of an early labor. It may make the baby due before the 37th week of pregnancy. This also makes the baby more susceptible to respiratory disorders.

  3. High Blood Pressure – Gestational diabetes also raises your risks for high blood pressure. This can be fatal for you as well as your baby’s health.

Treatment:

  1. Book an appointment with a dietitian and follow a healthy eating schedule. Limit the amount of carbohydrates and ensure you have a healthy and balanced meal.

  2. Do light exercises regularly during pregnancy. This helps you to control your blood sugar level. Physical activities which require low levels of energy utilization such as swimming and walking will control your blood sugar level without exerting you too much.

  3. Taking insulin shots and medicine for diabetes will also control your blood sugar levels if you have a pre-existing condition.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Management Of Infertility

IVF Specialist, Navi Mumbai

Hello,

I am Dr Vishwas Parulekar. I am a gynecologist in infertility specialist. I have received my education from K E M hospital and Nair Hospital in Mumbai and I have done diploma in reproductive medicine from KL University Germany. I am practicing for last 20 years and there are a lot of changes in gynecology as well as infertility practice. 20 years back the accessibility of the techniques like IVF and laparoscopy was not easy but nowadays it is very easy and accessible to all the people.

But the mainstay of the treatment race on the accurate diagnosis and in infertility the approach to the diagnosis and management is a team approach where the infertility specialist the one does IVF the sonologist the one who does the sonography and the laparoscopic surgeon who does the laparoscopy and hysteroscopy on the patient. They should have the best coordination and that is lacking in many of the places. So our hospital stands out in this respect that we have all these facilities under one roof and done by the same team.

So the coordination in the treatment and diagnosis is the best so we do here 3D 4D sonography along with colour Doppler and routine 2D sonography and we do laparoscopy and hysteroscopy along with all the laparoscopic and hysteroscopy procedure. Whatever I needed to treat infertility and we can do in for in vitro fertilization and with ICSI and IMCI with laser assisted hatching and we can do the freezing of the eggs embryos and spermatozoa so you also do the surrogacy treatment in our Centre.

We have helped hundreds of the couples in last 10 to 12 years of our infertility practice and Our centre is a state of the art centre and it is easily accessible and it is also not very expensive so it is really affordable people are costly procedure like IVF or ICSI can be done in analysis the cost of any common surgery which people do in a private nursing home if you want to know more about your infertility condition and you if you want to talk to me you can book an appointment through lybrate.com

Know How You Can Prevent Diabetes!

With sedentary lifestyle, refined and processed food habits, obesity and diabetes is the new age epidemic. India, in fact, is being termed as the diabetes capital of the world given the huge rise in the number of cases over the last couple of decades.

There are well established risk factors for diabetes and if these can be managed, then the chance of delaying onset, controlling progress and containing complications are highly possible. Read on to know how simple things can be effective in preventing and managing diabetes.

  1. Weight control: Obesity is the most important risk factor for developing diabetes. A person with normal BMI is 20 to 40 times less likely to develop diabetes than an overweight person. Losing about 10% of the excess weight can help prevent diabetes by more than 50%. Check with your doctor what should be the ideal recommended weight for you and draw up a routine (diet, exercise, etc.) that will help you achieve and stay around that weight range.

  2. Exercise: All methods of exercise help in moving the muscles, which is drastically reduced given our sedentary lifestyle. Moving the muscle (as much and as often as possible) ensures they absorb more glucose and reduce the stress on insulin production. Something as simple as brisk walking for 30 minutes is good enough to reduce the chances of developing diabetes by 50%.

  3. Don’t be a couch potato: If watching television is your favourite pastime, it is time to change it. This puts people at risk of developing obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Also, watching television is usually associated with overeating, further adding to the risk of diabetes.

  4. Fibrous foods: Eating fibrous fruits and vegetables as compared to refined and fried foods helps prevent diabetes.

  5. Whole grains vs processed foods: When you have to choose between a pizza and a bowl of brown rice, go for the latter.

  6. Good fats vs bad fats: Polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds and help control diabetes. Trans fats present in margarine and baked foods are best avoided.

  7. Non-vegetarian foods: If you have a choice, pick fish and poultry versus red meat (processed or otherwise). The fish is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and helps control inflammation.

  8. Leave the whites: Get off white rice, white refined sugar and white flours. Include brown rice, brown or demerara sugar and wheat flour instead.

  9. Smoking: Quit smoking and you will note how beneficial it is in preventing diabetes.

  10. Alcohol: Moderate amount helps in effective functioning of the insulin.

If you have a family history or have risk factors, follow the above to prevent diabetes. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 37 years old female suffering from hypothyroidism because of that had gained weight so what should I do to loose it. Please suggest.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Do consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Use home remedies just as an adjunct treatment evening primrose oil is another great ingredient that can help hypothyroid patients. Being high in gamma linoleic acids (clas), primrose oil offers anti-inflammatory benefits and helps increase the levels of thyroid hormones. At the same, it can relieve problems associated with hypothyroidism, such as hair loss and heavy menstrual flow. Exercise doesn? t always have to be gymming or running. Simple acts like climbing stairs or playing with your kids and pets are also some fantastic ways of getting some physical activity. You can walk for the grocery shopping or to the movie theatres. Just be active and don? t sit in one place for a long time. Physical activities not only help reduce weight, but also improve our overall health as well? if you are overweight, then cut down on your weight. A loss in weight is known to significantly lower those nasty dimples from your butt and thighs? improve your cardio routine. Opt for a high interval intensity training rather than walking or running continuously for 45 minutes? stretch regularly for at least 20 minutes a day. You could try chair pose, downward facing dog, the cobra pose, child pose, and tadasana. These are some of the easiest yoga stretching poses? keep your stress away. Stress triggers the formation of cortisol. The higher the levels of cortisol, the lower the ability of your body to burn fat. This in turn worsens your cellulite? drink green tea to pep up metabolism? detoxify yourself internally and externally regularly Diet also 1 cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon each of lime juice and honey and pinch of black pepper have this is an empty stomach twice a day. - increase intake of fruits. Salad and vegetables. - avoid fried and oily foods fatty food likes butter. Purified butter. Whole milk yogurt and chocolates -it is very important to engage daily exercise. Yoga pranayama.
