This during pregnant women who have a history of diabetes tended to anxiety because of the mention of the baby will be born with excess weight. This condition can be overcome provided the pregnant woman can control their blood sugar levels.
Dr. Eliezer Shalev and her colleagues from Ha’Emek Medical Center, Afula, Israel studied pregnant women with diabetes. The study, published journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, involved 134 pregnant women who were divided into two groups. The first group of 67 people, not people with diabetes and the second group 53 pregnant women with diabetes. In the group of women with diabetes, blood sugar levels closely monitored so that the blood sugar level was always normal scale.
The results found an average weight of newborns between the two groups is not much different. A total of 11 births of all respondents have a baby weighing no more than 4 pounds, which can be said normal weight babies. Hence Shalev suggested mothers with diabetes following the proper diet, which can keep blood sugar levels during pregnancy.
