Dear lybrate-user, Nice of you to care for your mom. The fluctuations in her sugar levels isn't entirely due to diet. Proper dose adjustment of antidiabetic drugs along with slight modifications in her timings and content of food will help.

Diabetes During Pregnancy - Know The Best Ways To Control It!

Diabetes During Pregnancy - Know The Best Ways To Control It!

Pregnancy brings with it a set of challenges, and for a diabetic woman, these only increase further. Earlier, the risks of dealing with pregnancy and diabetes as a combination were too high. However, over the last few decades, things have changed. The age at which women are choosing to have a baby has gone up. On the other hand, the age of onset of diabetes has come down drastically.
These days, there are many diabetic women who go through pregnancy smoothly without major complications. Of course, there is extra care and precaution required, but it is not something that cannot be planned and managed well between the doctor and the mother-to-be.

The following are some rough guidelines for a pregnant diabetic woman.
Potential complications

  1. It increases the risk of polycystic ovaries, thereby making it difficult to conceive.
  2. Fluctuating sugar levels can be a reason for not being able to conceive, as the body does not see itself as healthy.
  3. It increased the chances of miscarriage.
  4. There are higher chances of birth defects in the developing baby due to very high sugar levels in the first trimester.

Preparation
If you are planning for a pregnancy, meet with your doctor to review your sugar levels. Chalk out a plan with your doctor, taking into account your diet and nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, and medications.

  1. Diet: Ensure you cautiously decide what and how to eat ahead of your pregnancy. Moving away from refined carbohydrates and processed foods towards wholesome food items like whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables will make a difference.
  2. Exercise: Build an exercise routine to suit your body and keep yourself active. It is very important to stay active so that diabetes is under control.
  3. Lifestyle: Quit smoking and reduce alcohol use. This helps in managing stress also, which can help keep diabetes under check.
  4. Medications: Check with your doctor on the medicines you are taking and if dose adjustments are required to get sugar levels under control, plan them out.

During pregnancy, constant monitoring and vigilance is required to ensure diabetes is under control.

  1. Let your gynecologist know about your condition (stable/fluctuating), and if you are doubtful about them being able to handle your condition, do not hesitate to change.
  2. Many consider switching to oral medications as the risk of transmission to the baby is less and the control over sugar levels is better.
  3. Constant monitoring for daily blood sugars is essential.
  4. A regular, healthy lifestyle in terms of eating and sleeping should help keep the sugars under check.
  5. Constant monitoring of the baby is essential to ensure its normal growth with no developmental defects. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

I am suffering from uric acid. Report is 8.1. Normal is 3.0. What should I do for control this.
YOu need to take medication for reducing the uric acid level .Drink at least 3-4 liters per day to remove the uric acid from the body. You can include buttermilk, coconut water, lemon water, green tea etc to increase your overall fluid intake. Reduce intake of purine rich food- Uric acid is formed by breakdown of proteins called PurinesOne banana has about 105 calories and is low on sugar but very high in vitamins B6, vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, folic acid and potassium; which is very beneficial to the gout sufferer and should be part of your daily diet.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have diabetes, then first and fore most is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG:<100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. That will help maintaining an overall better health. For lower back pain there are a number of exercises which can be done by lying down flat on a mat - these include 1) Lifting one leg straight up from hip, holding it for five counts, then the second leg. This can be done for five sets, 2) Lifting both legs up to a 30 degree from ground, holding at that level for 5 counts, doing five sets 3) Cycling for 30 counts in each set, 3 sets like this, 4) Lifting the legs and touching the toes beyond your head, do it 10 times, 5) Turning the the legs inside out 10 times and same repetition from outside to inwards (difficult to explain) can be seen on TV in Astha channel, 6) Pawan muktasana, with one leg then with both legs. Like this there are many exercises which can help in stretching back muscles and help relieving the pain. Any pain iller is fine for a few days. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the above values are fairly good, particularly t3 & t4, tsh is marginally high, it falls in to a category as sub- clinical hypothyroidism. At that level no treatment is advocated. Certain precautions like avoiding soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Regular exercise to avoid weight gain and consume more of green leafy vegetables as well as use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Avoid maida and products made out of it.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query The blood glucose levels and HbA1c% indicate a totally uncontrolled diabetes. This has resulted in weight loos due excreting excess glucose regularly through urine. You have to initiate immediate treatment with anti-diabetic drugs. Plus take a restricted diet and exercise regularly for over 1 hour a day. Please do not delay. Either get in touch with a local physician or diabetologist or if you want online help, please comeback with following details: current fasting & PP blood glucose levels, medications being taken (if any) blood urea, creatinine levels, lipd profile, BP readings, extent of daily exercise, present dietary pattern in a private conversation (paid consultation), then I will be able to give specific instructions and prescriptions required. Thanks.
