Women and Diabetes
Diabetes can be especially hard on women. The burden of diabetes on women is unique because the disease can affect both mothers and their unborn children. Women can have a healthy pregnancy after being diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 Diabetes. It’s all about our self-importance to manage the condition before and during pregnancy to avoid complications. When the women planning to have a baby, the best thing what could possible and remove the complication is to try to get the Blood-glucose levels as close to our target range. The target ranges may be different from the state of pregnancy and normal. Mainly, the blood glucose levels and general health need to be tracked before and during your pregnancy. On pregnancy, blood glucose and ketones travel through the placenta to the baby since they require energy from glucose like all the lives. The babies are at risk for birth defects if the glucose levels are too high. Transferring high blood sugar to unborn babies puts them at risk for cognitive impairments, developmental delays, and high blood pressure.
