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?
Gestational diabetes can also be hereditary. If a family member or a relative has diabetes, you are more likely to develop gestational diabetes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
- Taking insulin shots and medicine for diabetes will also control your blood sugar levels if you have a pre-existing condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hello this is Dr. Chhavi Bansal and I am practicing Homeopathy at Homeosure-Home of Homeopathy and Wellness, Pritampura. Today I’ll be discussing about Hypertension which is the most common emerging lifestyle disorder these days. Hypertension is defines as elevation of blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure of flowing blood on the inner walls of the blood vessels and it depends on various factors like the pumping force of the heart, the resistance of the blood vessels and the amount of blood flowing through the vessels. As I have previously told that it is a lifestyle disorder, its development has been attributed to various lifestyle changes like poor diet, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, poor sleeping habits, work stress, mental stress.
It is often termed as the ‘silent killer’ because in many of the cases its symptoms do not manifest in the beginning of the cases and usually manifests itself with complications. Also many people do not give importance to hypertension until and unless they develop complications. Hypertension can be of two types: primary or essential and secondary hypertension depending on the causes of hypertension. And in majority of the cases, almost 90-95% cases there is no underline cause to hypertension and this is termed as Primary or Essential Hypertension.
Secondary Hypertension is the one where there is some kind of underlining medical condition which needs to be treated there. Now coming to the risk factors of hypertension, these factors can be modifiable and non-modifiable. The non-modifiable factor includes: Age like it is more common in later ages, Race because it is more common in African Americans and Genetic, because hypertension has been found running in families. The Modifiable risk factors are obesity, smoking, much intake of alcohol, caffeine, fatty food, higer level of cholesterol, high sodium diet, low potassium diet, prolonged stress or prolonged use of OCPs.
Now what is the harm from Hypertension? Prolonged hypertension can create a lot many complications: it can damage your eyes it can damage your kidneys, it can damage your heart and lead you to lot of diseases which can create loss of vision, kidney, heart diseases and stroke.
Now coming to the prevention or treatment of hypertension, as been previously told that there are various risk factors which make you prone to develop hypertension. So prevention is the best treatment of hypertension, if the risk factors are controlled then it will definitely control your hypertension or at least delay it. So the best prevention would be to have a healthy lifestyle which includes cutting down your alcohol and caffeine intake, quit smoking and maintaining your weight, adding physical activities to your routine daily, decreasing your sodium intake and increasing your potassium intake.
Homeopathy has wonderful results in delaying Hypertension and controlling Hypertension.
