In this podcast, we’re going to talk about pregnancy and diabetes. If you have pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or you’re a diabetic while pregnant, there are several things you need to know.
What is insulin resistance? — This is a condition where your body is not able to absorb insulin. Your body has to make more insulin than it needs, and that excess insulin creates a lot of problems. Your blood sugars may be normal, but you have a big problem under the surface.
HOMA-IR is a test you can take before you get pregnant to check and see if you have insulin resistance.
Complications from having blood sugar problems while pregnant:
• The baby is more likely to become a diabetic
• There is a higher risk of a stillbirth
• The mother may have a problem with fertility
• The baby may have stunted growth
• The baby may have birth defects
• The baby may have pre-eclampsia
