Gestational Diabetes - High Blood Sugar During Pregnancy

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Gestational Diabetes - High Blood Sugar During Pregnancy

Diabetes is a condition wherein one suffers from high blood sugar levels. Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes which occurs only during pregnancy. It is certainly possible to bear a healthy child, provided certain lifestyle modifications are adhered to. Once the baby is born, the condition usually tends to disappear. However, this does make you prone to Type 2 diabetes (a condition wherein the body is unable to utilize the insulin effectively).

High blood sugar levels during pregnancy can affect the baby. It usually gives rise to complications such as high blood sugar levels in the baby, impaired functioning of the pancreas in order to produce insulin, and excess sugar deposits in the form of fats. The baby might also become predisposed to jaundice and other breathing difficulties.

Causes:

Pregnancy causes the placenta to produce hormones that impair the functioning of insulin. The pancreas too does not produce the required amount of insulin. Both these factors contribute to the rise of sugar levels in the body.

There are certain factors which may put you at risk of being affected by gestational diabetes –

  1. Obesity

  2. A family history of diabetes

  3. Past history of the condition

Treatment:

There are measures one can adopt to reduce risks of this disorder. Shed the extra pounds and maintain optimal weight levels. An active lifestyle would ensure proper utilization of the insulin by the body. The main goal of treating gestational diabetes is to get the blood sugar levels back to normal. This can be done by:

  1. Insulin Shots: Insulin shots help normalize and regulate high blood sugar levels. Another advantage is that these shots do not affect the baby.

  2. Diet: A healthy eating plan helps prevent sudden surge in blood sugar. You have to be conscious of the type of foods you eat and be mindful of the portions you eat. Processed foods should be avoided; instead the focus should be on natural foods.

  3. Being Physical Active: Pregnancy does put certain restrictions on your mobility and your ability to perform certain exercises. Hence, an exercise plan should be designed accordingly. In times such as these, cardio vascular exercises, such as brisk walking, swimming or Yoga should be enjoying maximum priority in your list of the doable exercises. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Watermelon is tasty and sweaty. So I have a doubt that can a diabetic patient eat them? If any problem please.
1. You can take up to three fruit servings a day for diabetics at three separate times. 2. Each serving = size of a tennis bowl 3. Watermelon can be taken as per this limit. 4. Other fruits like oranges, apples and guavas also can be taken. 5. Fruits have many benefits, filled with fiber and nutrients hence must be included in daily diet of diabetics as well as healthy people.

My mom aged 50 years has high TSH levels=9.4. She has been taking THYROX-50 for sometime. Sometimes, mainly during night, she feels uneasy, she feels as if she can't breathe. Her feet get cold. We usually give her a massage of oil to her feet, cover her legs with a bedsheets and speed up the ceiling fan to its full extent. This generally calms her down. We also apply Navratna oil to her hair and give her electrolytes to drink, which makes her stable. So what exactly is happening to mom? Even the doctors she has consulted are not able to exactly identify her condition. So please suggest me some remedies.

according to tsh 9.4 give her tab. thyrox 100 mcg. and give her diet in hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and control weight also.

Your sugars are ok. But diabetic drugs are taken usually half an hour before taking food. You are saying you are taking after food.

Please clarify whether honey can be taken by a diabetic and exactly what is the difference between type 1 & type 2 diabeties?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Type 1 is the absence of pancreatic function as in children and type 2 is reduction in pancreatic function as in adults. Regarding honey sugar control is the biggest concern, it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Hypothyroidism And Homeopathic Cure!

Hypothyroidism And Homeopathic Cure!

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism. Severe iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism. Natural homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs.

Top homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism

  • Calcarea carb, sepia, lycopodium, graphites and nux vomica are the leading homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism 
  • The normal range of tsh levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. 
  • You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance
