Insulin For The Treatment Of Women With Gestational Diabetes

Insulin for the treatment of women with gestational diabetes The aim of this Cochrane review was to find out the effectiveness and safety of insulin compared with oral medication or non-pharmacological interventions for the treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM, which is diabetes diagnosed in pregnancy). It also looked at different timings for taking insulin during the day. We collected all the relevant studies (May 2017) and analysed the data . GDM can lead to both short- and long-term complications for the mother and her baby. Usually, diet and lifestyle advice is the first step, and women whose blood glucose remains too high may be treated with insulin, which is normally injected every day. Finding out if other treatment options are as safe and effective as insulin, is important, as these other treatments may be preferred by women who do not want to inject themselves with insulin. We searched for evidence on 1 May 2017 and found 53 studies reporting data for 7381 mothers and 46 studies reported data for 6435 babies. Overall, the quality of the evidence ranged from very low to moderate. Studies were undertaken in a variety of countries, including low-, middle- and high Continue reading >>

    Life without insulin? Is it possible?

    I am a type 1 diabetic. If I only ate low carb foods that do not raise my sugar could I stop taking insulin? Tomatoes, peppers, carrots, green beans, lettuce, cabbage and other foods do not raise my sugar so if I stayed on a diest of these foods and other foods that contain little or no carbs could I live without insulin?

    My son was diagnosed on May 30th,
    DKA lost 27 pounds in three weeks.
    Now he has been off insulin for three weeks and he has blood sugars that is perfect and his c-peptide is 5.0 (perfect and optimal). So it is possible to doing this great the honeymoon or is he an living example of being without insulin.
    We are Paleo and workout 1 hr a day Monday thru Friday with three days killing it. He has about 60-100
    carbs a day. Just good carbs vegetables, bananas, apples.

    I'm a type 1 and have been for over 43 years with no complications. I'm asking myself the same question as you, so I'm about to test myself with the following:
    Continue injecting lower amounts of my long acting insulin (NPH) twice a day, but lowering it gradually.
    Continue lifting weights and combining distance running and high intensity workouts. I've been doing this for 40+ years and I'm convinced that the "doses" of adrenaline and endorphins have a beneficial effect.
    Test my bgls 12-18 times a day (I use the Libre glucose monitor which makes this frequency very easy). Inject small top-ups of fast acting Humalog, if needed.
    Eat a diet of lean meat, fruit and vegetables, avoiding high carb intake.
    Has anyone tried this already, as a means to avoid hypos?
