Diabetes In Pregnancy - How To Manage It?

Pregnancy can be a tricky time for most women, although it is not a pathological condition. One must be prepared for pregnancy with the best of health in the pre pregnancy period. This also includes women who are suffering from diabetes. The complications during pregnancy and delivery increase manifold if one has not controlled the glucose and blood sugar levels before getting pregnant. So read on to know more about coping with pregnancy if you happen to have diabetes.

Complications: Pregnancy with diabetes can cause severe complications if the blood sugar levels are not controlled properly before pregnancy. This can cause the diabetes to become even worse in the long run, with the onset of various other related ailments like kidney disease, heart disease, eye problems and more. It can also increase the risk of premature delivery, and too much birth weight of the baby as well as low glucose levels right after the baby’s birth. Further, one can also lose the baby to a miscarriage due to excessively high blood sugar levels. This can also affect the glucose and blood sugar level of the baby as the glucose passes through the body.

Related conditions: If you happen to have high blood sugar levels, then you and your baby can get affected in an adverse way. To begin with, you may come down with severe depression regarding how you will be able to manage your diabetes and pregnancy together, and also due to the implications of the condition after the birth of the baby. It can also cause a condition called Preeclampsia in which the pregnant woman’s blood pressure becomes high and too much protein starts to pass from the urine, which can also result in frequent urination and life threatening defects and problems for you and the baby. In such cases, you will have to be hospitalised and the baby will need to be delivered via a C section or a Caesarean Section.

Planning ahead: If you know that you are trying to conceive, the best way is to be fully prepared well in advance. This includes planning ahead for managing the blood sugar levels and keeping the risk of other ailments at bay. You can start by losing excessive weight and seek treatment to bring down the blood sugar levels. Exercising and watching your diet are also some good ways to ensure that your Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes is in control.

Medical Team: It is pertinent to be in touch with your medical team on a constant basis. This team should include the obstetrician and gynaecologist as well as your regular doctor to whom you can report any changes.
Keep health close to your heart when you are pregnant by taking care of all existing ailments. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, Thanks for the query. Please tell me since when you have diabetes? What were the blood glucose levels & HbA1c% when diagnosis was made? Because the numbers given do not show that there is overt diabetes. All these are in the pre-diabetic state. (FBG 101 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c% <6.5%). Hence, if yo do regular exercise over 1 hour a day, plus take proper restricted diet, avoiding sweets, deep fried food, pastries, bakery items, foods made from maida, colas and alcohol. Plus it is necessary to maintain a normal weight for the age and height. Since there is no mention height, there is no way to calculate ideal body weight (IBW). At 66 years IBW can be calculated by: Height in Cms - 100 X 0.9 = IBW. Thanks.

Increased creatinine is reflection of decreased kidney function which is common complication of long standing diabetes and there there is no medicine which can reduce cretinine. Treatment is aimed to preserve kidney function as long as possible by controlling diabetes, BP and avoiding nephrotoxic drugs. When kidney functions deteriorate despite these efforts dialysis is done and renal transplant is the final answer.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Eggs can be taken in diabetes. In fact eggs are a very good source of protein. As regards exercise, 1 hour brisk walking is more than sufficient. There is no need for workout in gym at your age. Thanks.

Your endocrinologist will manage your fathers blood pressure issues also. No need to consult anyone else. If he/she feels there could be some other cause like kidney or heart issue, then you will be advised accordingly.
