Seasonal Variations In Gestational Diabetes Incidents

A study done by researchers from the University of Adelaide, South Australia shows gestational diabetes (GD) may be developed in those women who conceive babies during the winter season. Researchers analyzed 60,000 births in South Australia during 5 year period and came to conclusion on the seasonal variation. During the winter season, 6.6 percent of pregnant women developed gestational diabetes compared with 5.4 percent of pregnant women developing gestational diabetes during the summer season. Researchers say the incidence of gestational diabetes on the rise and now researchers are investigating reasons for seasonal variation as the reasons for the development of gestational diabetes are not known. Previous studies show factors for the development of gestational diabetes are

  • Physical activity
  • Food consumption
  • Vitamin D
  • Weather factors such as humidity, temperature etc

Researchers from the University of Groningen, Netherlands were also involved in this study. Lead author of the study is Dr. Petra Verburg and the study findings were published in the journal BMJ Diabetes Research & Care.

Poor Control Of Pregnancy Diabetes

A study done by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh shows chances of better blood sugar control is less in pregnant women with diabetes if they follow chaotic lifestyle or supported by food stamps. Women's lifestyle becomes chaotic because of

  • Poverty
  • Family stresses
  • Unpredictable work schedules
  • Unstable housing

Pregnant women can achieve good blood sugar control either by diet changes or by medications. Women achieved good blood sugar levels may fall in any of the following groups

  • Married women
  • Doing at least 3 times in a week physical exercise
  • Higher household income
  • No depression or anxiety history

Authors say pregnancy health may be impacted by many social factors. Obese women and women from marginalized communities are often at very high blood sugar levels when diabetes was diagnosed, which makes difficult to control diabetes for healthcare professionals and patients. Researchers say pregnant women taking SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits are at worst blood sugar control. Help is required to pregnant women in controlling blood sugar levels. Help can be such as

  • Shorter working hours
  • Help in taking care of children
  • Give time to do physical exercise
  • Creating better atmosphere

Lead author of the study is Dr. Laura Colicchia and the study findings were published in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Risks To Dementia With Blood Sugar Levels

A research based on ACT study done by researchers linked risk of dementia with higher levels of blood sugar levels in individuals even if they are without diabetes. Researchers studied over 2,000 individuals aged over 65 years for a 5 years period and came to the following conclusion. In patients without diabetes, studies show 18 percent higher dementia risk if the blood glucose levels averaged 115 mg/dL compared within individuals with blood sugar levels of 110 mg/dL. In patients with diabetes, studies show 40 percent higher dementia risk if the blood glucose levels averaged 190 mg/dL compared within individuals with blood sugar levels of 160 mg/dL. Researchers say blood sugar levels are linked to body metabolism which turns the food we eat into sugar. Author of the study says as blood sugar levels increase, the risk of dementia also increases. An individual can reduce or control blood sugar levels by doing regular physical exercise such as walking, cycling etc. Author of the study is Paul K Crane and senior author of the study is Eric B Larson.
