For many woman, pregnancy is a period where you experience the most changes in your body.
On top of physical and emotional changes, women also go through a huge deal of hormonal changes which could change their lifestyles greatly.
These changes may include weird pregnancy cravings such as sugary or salty snacks which is provided as a comfort to many ladies, however, this often leads to unhealthy eating habits.
Year on year, we see a trend where there is an increasing growth of ladies with Gestational Diabetes which may puzzle many, especially those that lead a generally healthy lifestyle all their lives.
SO WHAT IS GESTATIONAL DIABETES?
In summary, it is a type of diabetes that can develop during pregnancy in women who don’t already have diabetes.
It’s an occurrence that happens when one’s body can’t make enough insulin, a key hormone produced by your pancreas that acts like a key to let blood sugar into the cells in your body for use as energy, during a pregnancy.
During pregnancy, your body makes more hormones and goes through other changes, such as weight gain.
These changes cause your body’s cells to use insulin less effectively, a condition commonly called insulin resistance which increases your body’s need for insulin.
Well there are many ways one can do to maintain and manage gestational diabetes. These can include attending prenatal appointments and following your treatment plan, including:
- Checking blood sugar to make sure your levels stay in a healthy range.
- Being active. Brisk walking and regular swimming
- Eating healthy food in the right amounts at the right times.
