Malformations In Infants Of Diabetic Mothers

Go to: EVIDENCE THAT INFANTS OF DIABETIC MOTHERS HAVE HIGHER MALFORMATION RATES Evidence that infants of diabetic mothers have higher malformation rates has accumulated over the last several decades. Initially, centers reporting their experience with diabetic pregnancies noted high malformation rates in the infants of diabetic mothers. The author is aware of more than a dozen studies reporting malformation rates of 6% or more. Since malformations were not the primary focus of most of these studies, they were frequently uncontrolled and, hence, useful mainly to direct attention to the question of teratogenesis. Numerous animal studies (to be discussed in detail later) were then performed to define the relationship between diabetes and malformations. Rats and mice made diabetic by alloxan or streptozotocin consistently produced more malformed offspring than expected. One recent experiment (Sadler, ’79) took serum from diabetic rats and injected it into mouse embryo cultures. The injected (but not control) embryos developed a dose-related increase in malformations, suggesting that some diabetic factor, not the alloxan or streptozotocin, is teratogenic. The definitive study relating Continue reading >>

    My boyfriend was diagnosed with Type 1 when he was 19. He was an idiot and decided to not take care of himself. He's 26 and just recently started taking his insulin on a normal basis. His A1C is like, 12 or something, down from 15 when I met him last year. He has a ridiculous appetite and can put down tons of food but he doesn't gain any weight. He's about 6 foot and weighs 140 and can't seem to get any fatter than that. Is there anything he can do to gain weight? He's really self-conscious about it.

    Skinny as fuck diabetic reporting in. To gain weight, he needs to keep his blood sugars low like in the 6-7 range A1C. I'm 6'2", 175 lbs and a hard gainer. If it wasn't for the gym (1,000s of hours lifting) I'd probably weigh 150 lbs.

    I think you should be more frustrated with him for having the high A1C's.
    His medical bills and health are not going to be to bright looking if he doesn't lower that A1C.
    But, the gym is a great thing for diabetics, once they figure out how the exercise changes their blood sugars (working out will lower your blood sugar).

    How does Diabetes in the mother affect the baby before birth? When a mother has diabetes, her body does not control blood sugar normally. Blood sugar is controlled mainly by insulin. Normally, blood sugar rises after meals. The body responds by putting insulin into the blood stream. The insulin helps the sugar get into the body's cells that use the sugar for energy and growth. With diabetes, there is not enough insulin released by the body causin ...

    Since infants of diabetic mothers are often delivered prematurely, it has been uncertain whether the hypocalcemia reported in them is related to maternal diabetes or to prematurity. In this study of 28 infants of diabetic mothers and 28 prospectively matched infants born to nondiabetic mothers, the incidence of hypocalcemia was significantly increased in the infants of diabetic mothers, even when gestational age and perinatal complications were t ...

    Women may have diabetes during pregnancy in 2 ways: Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar (diabetes) that starts or is first diagnosed during pregnancy. If the diabetes is not well controlled during pregnancy, the baby is exposed to high blood sugar levels. This can affect the baby and mom during the pregnancy, at the time of birth, and after birth. Infants who are born to mothers with diabetes are often larger than other babies. Larger infant ...

  • Why Is An Infant Born To A Diabetic Mother At Risk For Hypoglycemia?

    Thesis Infants of diabetic mothers are at high risk to develop hypoglycemia after birth. After birth, glucose and ketone bodies are the main substrates of brain energy. Under normal condition, the adrenergic response seen immediately after birth suppresses insulin release and stimulates glucagon secretion which enhances gluconeogenesis and ketogenesis. An inversion of the insulin/glucagon ratio is seen soon after birth as a normal, physiologic ph ...
