Illustration
Gestational diabetes is a problem which happen at pregnancy wiman. The body of diabetes woman is not able using glucose / sugar as what it should at the blood, that problem will make sugar level in the blood become more than normal. This is because the body can not make enough insulin properly. The insulin is kind of hormone which is made my pancreas and will make the sugar at the body process become energy or as fat. Almost 4% of pregnancy woman could infected with gestational diabetes. Usually the problem begin at 5th or 6th month of pregnancy or between 24th week to 28th weeks of pregnancy. But this gestational diabetes is not permanen, because the problem will away after the baby already born.

Risk diabetes to Baby

Women with poorly controlled preexisting diabetes in the early weeks of pregnancy are three to four times more likely than nondiabetic women to have a baby with a serious birth defect, such as a heart defect or neural tube defect (NTD), a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord. They also are at increased risk of miscarriage and stillbirth.

Women with gestational diabetes, which generally develops later in pregnancy, usually do not have an increased risk of having a baby with a birth defect. However, some of these women may have had unrecognized diabetes that began prior to pregnancy. They may have had high blood sugar in the early weeks of pregnancy, which increases the risk of birth defects. Poorly controlled gestational diabetes also increases the risk of stillbirth. However, with improvements in medical care, stillbirth is rare.

Women with poorly controlled diabetes (gestational or preexisting) are at increased risk of having a very large baby (10 pounds or more). Macrosomia is the medical term for this. These babies grow so large because some of the extra sugar in the mother’s blood crosses the placenta and goes to the fetus. The fetus then produces extra insulin, which helps it process the sugar and store it as fat. The fat tends to accumulate around the shoulders and trunk, sometimes making these babies difficult to deliver vaginally and putting them at risk for injuries during delivery.

During the newborn period, babies of women with poorly controlled diabetes are at increased risk of breathing difficulties, low blood sugar levels and jaundice. These problems can be treated, but it’s better to prevent them by controlling blood sugar levels during pregnancy. Babies of women with poorly controlled diabetes also may be at increased risk of developing obesity and diabetes as young adults.

To get the insulin, usually the doctor will give option, which is taking a pill or injection. Some of study and research give the information that oral diabetes medication (glyburide) is have more success to treat the gestational diabetes. The pregnancy woman who take the oral medication to treat the gestational diabetes didn't have more pregnancy complications than take the insulin treated group.

What To Do After Delivery?
