Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

Women tend to develop high levels of blood sugar during their pregnancy (especially within the 24th and 28th weeks), irrespective of whether they already had suffered from diabetes prior to their pregnancy. However, gestational diabetes, if not taken proper care of, might escalate the risks of developing diabetes in the near future for both the mother and the child, accompanied by complications in pregnancy or labor. Gestational diabetes is usually characterized by mild symptoms such as excessive urge to urinate, excessive thirst, blurred vision and fatigue.

Causes:
Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, allows for the utilization of the glucose for energy. The food consumed is broken down by the digestive tract of the body, converting carbohydrates into glucose before releasing it into the bloodstream. The glucose is then absorbed by the cells to be used as an energy source. Now, at the time of pregnancy, the placenta (organ nourishing the fetus) connecting the baby to the blood supply also produces various other hormones in high levels, for instance, estrogen and human placental lactogen. Most of these hinder the normal functioning of insulin in the cells, hence raising the blood sugar count. With subsequent growth of the baby, the placenta keeps on producing more amounts of such insulin resistant hormones to an extent that they are capable of meddling with the development of the baby.

Treatment:
1. Monitoring the blood sugar count at least four to five times a day and keeping it under control might help to ease the complication.
2. A healthy diet consisting of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in the right proportion and limiting sugar or other highly refined carbs meets the nutrition and fiber requirement of the body. Guard against additional weight gain during pregnancy as that hampers the entire process.
3. Exercise or regular physical activities help to normalize blood sugar level by boosting glucose absorption in the cells. Furthermore, exercises also enhance the sensitivity of the cells towards insulin. This means that only a little amount of insulin production by your body would be enough for the transportation of sugar.
4. Medication, If exercise and diet fall inadequate, insulin injections are often administered to control blood sugar count.
5. Keeping the baby under close observation with the help of repeated ultrasound and other tests to record its growth and development is an essential part of the treatment plan. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I have done blood test of my 1.5 year old son. Levels were 136 Ng/ml for Vitamin D and 10 Ng/ml for calcium. After 2 days, in a spot urinary calcium, level was 3.6 We have immediately stopped giving vitamin d sachet to our child. How much risky is this and appropriate actions we should take in this situation. Please respond, your response is really appreciable.

Adolescent Nutrition

MBBS, Diploma In Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad

Adolescent Nutrition

Adolescence is a period of transition from childhood toadulthood. It is also a period of biologic, physical, emotional, and cognitive change. Teenagers want to be more independent, have an active lifestyle, and find their identity. They are frequently sensitive to criticism. These factors can put the adolescent at nutritional risk. In addition to growth and greater demand for calories and nutrients, their change in lifestyle affects food choices. Adolescents may skip meals, eat away from home, increase snacking, eat more convenience fast foods, and generally be more responsible for their food intake.4–6

Adolescents today are inundated with images of the “ideal body” from all types of media and at the same time struggling to define their own body image during an impressionable phase of their lives. It is during this time that disordered eating can become apparent and can manifest itself in an obsession with weight control, which can lead to long-term health concerns. Eating together as a family in a relaxed environment is very important at this stage.

The typical adolescent may display the following nutritional habits:
• Derives over 30% of calories from fat
• Skips breakfast (20%)
• Skips lunch (22%)
• Snacks heavily from 3:00 pm to bedtime (50%)

Two to five years age is just different they don't know what is right and wrong, they becomes final. This is more common in bottle fed or working mothers. Don't worry not to pamper, start self feeding,&table manners etc.

The usual dose of albendazole for children above 2 years of aee is 400 Mg as single dose and may be repeated after one week. Anyhow,make sure all the family members take one dose of 400 Mg and children (adults ,as well) should not walk with open feet in the soil and always wear chappals 200 Mg of albendazole for 5 days is not recommended anywhere in medical journals. But a second dose can be given 2 weeks part and for children less than 2 years 200 Mg and for those above 2 years 400 Mg is to be used.

My 7 year old daughter had cold and fever last week. She could not breathe from her nose and she was breathing from her mouth. Nasal spray also did not work. Later I took her to ayurvedic doctor. She checked and said that my child has polyps in both her nostrils. She gave some powder and medicine. Later my child cold decreased and she started to breathe through nose. Now she's completely normal but medicines course still there. And she was admitted in hospital because of pneumonia 3 years back. Will polyps go completely in those medicines? Or is there any problem? Please answer.

Even though Ayurveda is an established medical science but I have some reservations for advising you to follow it for your kid. More so because she has a history of pneumonia. Please visit an ENT surgeon or pediatric surgeon for the definitive treatment of nasal polyps. As far as I know the nasal decongestants are not advisable for kids, at the most the Nasoclear is saline based nasal drops you can use for her along with steam inhalation. The nasal polyps are best managed by surgical excision. The medicines for polyps don’t provide permanent relief.
