Women in Endocrinology and Diabetes

Diabetes can be hard on women especially. The burden of diabetes on women is unique because of disease can affect both the mothers and unborn babies. Women’s body have two main reproductive hormones, estrogen and progesterone which can affect blood glucose by changing how body reacts to insulin. When estrogen levels are high, cells become more sensitive to insulin. But when estrogen is low and progesterone is high, women will experience insulin resistance, that is, more insulin is required to help cells take in glucose from the blood. Diabetes can cause difficulties during pregnancy like miscarriage, or the baby may bear defects. Women with diabetes are prone heart attack.
