Namaskar!

I am Dr Nikhil D Datar I am a senior gynaecologist practicing in the area of Mumbai, I practice mainly in westerns aboves of Mumbai. I am attach to Cloudnine hospital, Lifewave hospital and Yashoda Hospital situated in the area of Malad and Goregaon.

Today I am going to speak to you about a very burning issue that is diabetes and blood pressure that occurs during pregnancy. Many of times these are the problems that are not detected by the people because usually patients do not have any great suffering or any great symptoms. So it is very important that you go to your doctor on regular basis and get yourself check mainly for the blood pressure as well as for the sugar level during pregnancy. These are two problems which if detected in time they can be treated very-very well and you get a very successful outcome, so you can definitely be a healthy mother and give a birth to a healthy baby. However, if it all these things are not taken care of then it can really be a dangerous thing. Both these problems occur because of the fact that you are pregnant, so it means that unless and until the delivery takes place these problems are not going to go away. Both blood pressure and diabetes can have significant side effects on the mother's health as well as on the baby’s health. So it is very important that the obstetrician that you are going to on both hands checks on the mother's health as well as the baby’s health and keeps that balance between these two situations. Senior obstetrician were well experienced can take care of such kind of problems very-very well and as an what I told you that early detection, quick and immediate treatment, regular kind of follow-up, diet, exercise and medical management frequent and regular monitoring can give you a brilliant outcome and you will have a very-very successful pregnancy and healthy baby at the end of the pregnancy.

I wish you all a good luck and of course Lybrate platform is there on which you can take an appointment for me or you can also do an online consultation or chatting with me. Thank you.
