Blood Balance Formula

Why do some women develop diabetes in pregnancy? Blood Balance Formula Review The extra strain on your metabolism means that the pancreas needs to produce extra insulin. This is partly because of the extra energy needs of the baby, and partly because the placenta produces hormones that can prevent insulin from working properly. In some women, this extra insulin is not produced, leading to gestational diabetes. This almost always gets better afterward; if you take insulin for the first time during pregnancy, it is highly likely you will be able to stop this immediately after the birth.The tablets used to treat diabetes should not be used in pregnancy: it is safer and better to change over to insulin injections. The effects of these tablets could become unpredictable in pregnancy, and because they are often very long lasting, difficult to reverse. They may also cross to the baby, affecting its blood sugar levels.Are diabetic babies more likely to get stuck during delivery? Most diabetic women are able to have a normal vaginal delivery. However, very large babies may get their shoulders stuck under the pelvic bones at delivery. This is known as "shoulder dystocia" and can be dangerous for the baby, leading to damaged nerve fibers in the shoulder and arm, broken bones, and, rarely, death of the baby. If a baby is thought to be very large before delivery, a cesarean section may be advised.
