Diabetes In Women - Because It's Your Right To A Healthy Future!

Diabetes In Women - Because It's Your Right To A Healthy Future!

The disease itself may not discriminate on the gender basis, but when it comes to healthcare for patients with diabetes, women find themselves at a disadvantage as compared to men. Studies indicate that diabetes, a disease that affects over 371 million people worldwide takes a greater toll on women than men. Though, hormones in women do account for some of the unique challenges they have to face, but there are other societal factors as well that bring in the differences.

This World Diabetes Day is about promoting the significance of affordable care for diabetes and equitable access for all women at risk or living with diabetes to essential medicines, technological information and self-management education they require and achieve an optimal outcome to strengthen their adequacy to prevent type-2 diabetes. Because it's your right to a healthy and disease-free future!

So, how will you know if you are suffering from this deadly disease – Diabetes?

Symptoms

Women with diabetes experience many of the same symptoms as that of men. However, there are some that are specific to women.

Symptoms experienced by both women and men:

Symptoms unique to women:

Diabetes is the ninth leading cause of death in women globally, causing 2.1 million deaths each year. Two out of every five women suffering from diabetes are of reproductive age. Women with diabetes have more difficulty conceiving and may have poor pregnancy outcomes.

Diabetes and Pregnancy

The affect of Diabetes, in a pregnancy, will not be great, if controlled properly. Women with diabetes should talk to their gynaecologists while planning to conceive so that they can control their blood sugar levels even before getting pregnant. Your gynaecologist will help you control and monitor your diabetes and blood sugar levels during pregnancy.

And, if you fail to get your blood sugar levels under control during pregnancy, you may experience severe risks:

  1. Miscarriage

  2. Premature delivery

  3. Difficult delivery or cesarean section (C-section)

  4. Birth defects

  5. Having a large baby

  6. Preeclampsia (high blood pressure usually with protein in the urine)

  7. Low blood glucose in a newborn

  8. Breathing problems in the newborn

  9. Yellowing skin and eyes (jaundice) in a newborn

  10. Worsening diabetic eye problems and kidney problems for the mother

  11. Urinary or bladder infections

What is Gestational Diabetes?

When diabetes occurs in women during pregnancy, it is called gestational diabetes. It is usually diagnosed at the first week of pregnancy. Like in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, blood sugar levels become too high. When a woman is pregnant, more glucose is required to nourish the baby developing inside her womb. During this time, the body needs additional insulin, which is produced by the pancreas. In some women, the body does not produce enough insulin to meet this need, and blood sugar levels rise, resulting in gestational diabetes. 

Fortunately, for most women, gestational diabetes will go away once the baby is delivered. However, women who have had gestational diabetes are at increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Further, people suffering from PTSD are at higher risk and should consult their doctors immediately and those who are presently affected with Diabetes should consult for pre-conception consultation.

Risk Factors for Diabetes in Women

You are at risk for type-2 diabetes if you:

  1. are overweight or obese

  2. are older than 45

  3. have a family history of diabetes (parent or sibling)

  4. have had gestational diabetes

  5. have had a baby with a birth weight of more than 9 pounds

  6. have high blood pressure

  7. have high cholesterol

  8. have other health conditions that are linked to problems using insulin, such as PCOS

Diabetes Treatment Options

Medications

There are various medications you can take to control the symptoms of diabetes. These include:

  1. Insulin therapy

  2. Sulfonylureas like chlorpropamide, which increase pancreatic insulin secretion

  3. Metformin (Glucophage), which reduces blood sugar

Lifestyle changes

A change in your diet and lifestyle can also help women control their diabetes

  1. Exercise and maintain a healthy weight

  2. Monitor your blood sugar

  3. Eat a diet focused on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains

  4. Strictly avoid smoking cigarettes

Alternative remedies

Women with diabetes can try other alternative remedies to treat the symptoms, such as 

  1. Eat more broccoli, buckwheat, sage, peas, and fenugreek seeds

  2. Take supplements like chromium or magnesium

  3. Take plant supplements

But, always remember to consult with your doctor before trying any new treatment. Even if they are natural, they can intrude with your on-going treatment or medications. So, this World Diabetes Day, take a pledge towards healthy living, because your health is important to someone else!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Lybrate-user, half an hour walking is bare minimum, that is required. However, if you can do exercise for 1 hour a day, that will benefit in achieving better control of blood glucose. Simple brisk walking is as good as any other exercise. If want to start yogic asanas, that is good, but in addition to walking. Plus maintain a strict dietary control. Thanks.

Watermelon is one of the good fruits for diabetics. But advice you to not eat more than two bowls a day.(aprox total 100grams a day). As per height and weight you mentioned I suggest you also to reduce your weight slowly because the more you weigh there are more chances of poorly controlling the blood sugar levels and it's complications.

Hello firstly is he on medications? in diabetes because of increased sugar in urine more water is lost. This causes dryness in mouth and extra thirst. Only treatment is taking proper drugs and controlling sugar levels. If you inform the fasting and after food levels I can advise.

UTI is a nagging infection. It need a long term treatment. Your wife is having added disadvantage Diabetes and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Diabetes make the body prone to infection and RA alters immune-response may be due to treatment itself. You shall have to find out the right antibiotic and give a full course. Followed by some maintenance therapy for about 6 months. Before that exclusion retention of urine or bladder dysfunction is to be excluded. Blood glucose control is absolutely essential. Best adviser shall be your consultant, because he is examining your wife, what is required.
