Diabetes in Pregnancy – ECAB

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is classically seen in about 5-8% of the pregnant women. The condition appears to be caused by the same broad spectrum of physiological and genetic peculiarities that characterize diabetes outside of pregnancy. These women with GDM are also otherwise at high risk of having or developing diabetes even when not pregnant. The controversies regarding the diagnosis, management, and prevention of diabetes in pregnancy pose specific problems in clinical practice such as how to clinch the diagnosis, when to introduce therapy, what therapy to introduce, and how to predict the future course of the condition. This book is designed to address such questions with supportive typical clinical scenarios, with which all readers will be able to identify. Thus it provides an excellent opportunity to widen one’s perspective in this area.

Pregnancy For Dummies

Now updated–our bestselling guide to a safe and healthy pregnancy

With robust sales and its own four-part cable TV series, Pregnancy For Dummies has been a perennial favorite, giving parents-to-be authoritative, friendly, up-to-date advice on every aspect of pregnancy and childbirth. This new edition offers all of the latest information expecting parents want to know, including expanded coverage on the health and well-being of both mother and child. It takes readers through the first, second, and third trimesters, providing new and updated coverage of prenatal genetic screening and diagnosis, amniocentesis, new high-tech ultrasounds, and the revised FDA/USDA food pyramid. It also discusses the recent celebrity trend of “on-demand” cesarean sections, multiple births, what to expect in labor and delivery, postpartum care, choosing bottle or breastfeeding, preparing a home (and siblings) for a new baby, caring for preemies, and the mother’s mental as well as physical health.

“A thorough, accurate, and highly informative guide.”
Los Angeles TimesThis book’s title sure sounds a little scary, but as its often-hilarious testimonials from first-time parents show, expectant parents frequently feel really stupid. Like the vast majority of For Dummies books, this one is supremely organized and indexed to help you find the answer to most any question, especially the embarrassing ones you may be reluctant to ask your doctor (“Is it okay to have sex in the last trimester?” “How long does it take the ugly conehead effect to go away after birth?”) and the more serious ones (“Can I breast-feed while I’m on the Pill?”).

Unlike many pregnancy books, this one has plenty of helpful information for the mother’s partner, including ways to deal with vicious mood swings, helpful tips for preparing for childbirth class, and seven tricks for easing her labor pain–even if she’s threatening that you’ll never have sex again. Besides chapter after chapter of information about pregnancy’s physical aspects and how to stay comfortable during the next 40 weeks, there’s also plenty of advice on emotional issues–from learning how to say “hands off!” to the pesky people who want to rub your belly to coping with postpartum blues. Some readers may be offended by the book’s slightly warped sense of humor (example: “breast engorgement really sucks”), but the authors never treat serious topics in an off-base way. The book’s definitely geared toward first-time parents, but for moms and dads confused by the many new medical tests and modern options (such as the doula [pregnancy coach] dilemma or decision to freeze the baby’s umbilical cord or not), there’s a fine education to be had between this book’s covers.Now updated–our bestselling guide to a safe and healthy pregnancy

Diabetes in Pregnancy (Oxford Diabetes Library)

Diabetes is one of the most common medical conditions to complicate pregnancy. Gestational diabetes (diabetes with onset or first recognition in pregnancy) may complicate between 2 and 20% of pregnancies depending on the criteria used. Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes complicates over 1 in 300 pregnancies, and both have major implications for mother and child. The management of diabetes during pregnancy has seen a number of major innovations in recent years. Insulin analogues have been introduced, and technical innovations include improvements in insulin pumps and the development of continuous glucose monitoring devices. The evidence base for the management of gestational diabetes has improved markedly, and the investigations based around the Hyperglycaemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes (HAPO) study promise to revolutionise our understanding of the risks of adverse outcomes in pregnancy. The Australian Carbohydrate Intolerance Study (ACHOIS) has demonstrated that identification and glycaemic management of gestational diabetes leads to reduction in birth weight, macrosomia and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Finally, recent randomised control trials have explored use of oral hypoglycaemics (metformin, glibenclamide) in pregnancy. Part of the Oxford Diabetes Library series, Diabetes in Pregnancy summarizes the key aspects of the medical management of diabetes during pregnancy with an emphasis on clinical management. The volume is designed for all members of the multidisciplinary team and will act as a practical introduction particularly for obstetricians and endocrinologists in training.

Diabetes and Pregnancy: Gestational Diabetes

Gestational (jes-stay-shuh-nal) diabetes is diabetes that a woman can develop during pregnancy. When you have diabetes, your body cannot use the sugars and starches (carbohydrates) it takes in as food to make energy. As a result, your body collects extra sugar in your blood.

We don’t know all the causes of gestational diabetes. Some—but not all—women with gestational diabetes are overweight before getting pregnant or have diabetes in the family. From 1 in 50 to 1 in 20 pregnant women has gestational diabetes. It is more common in Native American, Alaskan Native, Hispanic, Asian, and Black women, but it is found in White women, too.
