Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Your blood glucose levels are high. What is the HbA1c%? Please get it done. It appears that present treatment is not adequate. There's a need to upgrade the treatment, plus give a closer look at your diet & daily exercise. With a BMI of 26.56 kgs/ M2, (normal< 23 kgs), there's a need to control weight, that will also help. Thanks.

How Can High Diabetes Affect Your Pregnancy?

How Can High Diabetes Affect Your Pregnancy?

Pregnancy brings with it the need to be extra careful about the overall well-being of the mother-to-be. Extreme caution has to be taken in managing health, as antibiotics and a lot of other treatment modalities are best avoided during pregnancy. With diabetes becoming common in the younger ages and women choosing to delay pregnancy, there are multiple women who are diabetic and choose to get pregnant later in life.

With diabetes being a chronic and a lifestyle condition, it definitely has its effects on pregnancy. However, the key is to manage diabetes cautiously in such a way that its effects on pregnancy, both the mother and the developing baby, are minimal. The increased blood sugar levels from the mother pass on to the baby, so keeping a close watch on the blood sugar levels is very important.

  1. The maximum effect of diabetes on the baby is during the first few weeks of pregnancy. It is when the vital organs (brain, heart, lungs and kidneys) are forming, and high blood sugar levels can be harmful. This is slightly tricky as most women realise they could be pregnant only after about 6 weeks. If pregnancy is planned, it is best advisable to keep a check on sugar levels much ahead of the pregnancy.
  2. The baby could be used to high levels of sugar while in the womb, and once delivered, it could have too low sugar levels. This needs to be monitored.
  3. Preeclampsia, which is increased protein in the urine and high blood pressure, can happen during the second trimester. This may require the baby to be delivered prematurely.
  4. Babies born to diabetic mothers are often bigger. The baby’s pancreas is used to higher sugar levels and so the extra sugar gets converted to fat, which is the reason for the bigger babies. This may also necessitate C-sections.
  5. Pregnancy can induce the development of diabetic retinopathy, which may prevent vaginal delivery, as the woman may not be able to exert the required pressure.
  6. Abnormal calcium and magnesium levels, which need to be monitored for a while after birth
  7. Most diabetic women reach full term if the sugar levels have been under good control.

Diabetic pregnant women are high at risk. However, with advanced medical care, these risks and complications are managed very well producing healthy babies from normal deliveries with effectively no harm to the mother’s health. Once a diabetic woman tests positive, it is advisable to seek medical help to plan diet/meal plan, physical activities, exercise regimen, lifestyle changes, and medication dose adjustments. This is not a one-time activity, but needs to be closely monitored with daily blood sugar levels throughout the pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Hi Karela juice is a diabetic friendly juice. It has glucose lowering effect and drinking it in excess can cause repeated low blood sugars when taken with diabetic medicines. It mostly causes abdominal pain and diarrhea in some but is not known to cause any kidney damage. In fact it prevents kidney stones and controls blood pressure.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are close to over 300 million (30 plus crore) diabetes patients world over. In india there are over 6.5 crore. If diabetes were to be cured by either homeopathy or ayurveda, many of those would have recovered. Even long term complications would not have occurred in those. But the fact is on the contrary. We have increasing number of diabetes patients ending up with retinal problems and becoming blind, getting chronic kidney disease due to diabetes, going into end stage kidney failure, over 1 lack feet are amputated in india alone due to diabetic foot going in to gangrene. If diabetes was to be cured by those medicines you will agree all these things would not have occurred. Diabetes can only be well controlled, complications can be prevented by modern medicines only. Still if you want to use other medicines choice is yours.

Yes, small frequent meals are the key to keep sugar level under control and reduce drug requirement. Regular walking exercise too helps in bringing down sugar levels.
