Avoid Diabetes During Pregnancy
Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant women who have high blood sugar levels and have lost control of their sugar intake and blood levels during the pregnancy period. Gestational diabetes occurs when the pregnant woman develops an insulin deficiency in the body and there is not enough insulin produced by the body for the breakdown of sugar and glucose. Insulin is extremely important for the body as it helps in the formation of usable blood sugar energy and also to store excessive fats for later. During pregnancy, there is an extra need of insulin and failure of the body to meet the requirement can cause gestational diabetes.
